Obituary of Sandra "Sandy" Gersh
Sandra (Sandy) Marjorie Gersh, a resident of Las Vegas, NV, passed away peacefully on February 2, 2019. Born on March 9, 1941, she is preceded in death by her parents, Alice & Aaron Lenhoff, her sister Elaine Goldstein and devoted husband of 48 years, Allen Gersh. She leaves two sons, Howard & Julie (Noah, Zac, and Evan) and Andy & Sharyn (Owen and Leo) and two siblings, Saul Lenhoff and Joyce Torby. Sandy, who worked for the City of Detroit, the Oak Park School District (Michigan), and Sanyo Fisher Corporation, loved mahjong, seashells, cruises, coupons, movies and her family. She wasn’t, however, fond of earthquakes, wildfires, or anyone else driving. A legion of friends, loved ones, and acquaintances describe Sandy as, “wonderful”, “sweet”, “funny”, “beautiful”, “just so special”, and “I loved her”. She’d ask anyone wearing Detroit sporting apparel, “Are you from Michigan?” She made incredible salmon patties, and could carry on four conversations simultaneously. Quick to smile, Sandy could light up a room and leaves innumerable warm memories for generations to remember. Her funeral will be at 9:20am on Wednesday, February 6th at Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery, 1900 Buchanan Blvd., in Boulder City, NV. In lieu of flowers, donations to the charity of your choice would be greatly appreciated.
