Sandra Esken Obituary
Sandra M. Esken, nee Margolin, age 83, adored wife of Donald whose love together lasted over 65 years. Sandy's life was defined by that unique combination of proud independence and intense family dedication. Some of the fondest times of her life were those enjoyed with her children Karyn (Fred Breitberg) and Cheryl (Scott Gelman) whose tireless efforts and devotion never wavered while selflessly caring for her through her most difficult and trying times. For many years Sandy taught grade school, followed later as the manager of a large travel agency, which led her to unforgettable experiences around the world. But her legendary smile and passionate joys were saved for her grandchildren; a go-to "Grammy" for Danny, Sammy, and Joey. Surely, her understanding and endless affection for them will be among their cherished memories. Sandy will be missed by her dear sister Marcy Silverstein and as an aunt, great aunt, and every friend who knew her unselfish kindness. Service Tuesday, 12 noon at Chicago Jewish Funerals, 8851 Skokie Blvd (at Niles Center Road), Skokie. Interment Private. In lieu of flowers, memorials in her name may be made to United States Holocaust Museum, 100 Raoul Wallenberg Place SW, Washington D.C. 20024., www.ushmm.org. Arrangements by Chicago Jewish Funerals - Skokie Chapel, 847.229.8822, www.cjfinfo.com.
