Sandra Landau, 80
WORCESTER - Sandra Landau, 80, of Worcester, died peacefully at home on October 7th of a rapidly progressive neurological disorder. She leaves her husband of 60 years, Edward Landau M.D., her three children, Kenneth, Beth, and Joyce, and six grandchildren. There will be no funeral or visiting hours, and the family wishes to mourn privately. At a later date, a memorial service may be held, at which time the public will be notified.
Sandra earned her B.A. from Radcliffe College, an M.S. in sociology from Clark University, and her J.D. from Boston College Law School. She practiced law with the firm of Bowditch and Dewey and then established a private legal practice in Worcester with Attorney Kathleen O'Connor.
Sandra was deeply devoted throughout her life to the cause of social justice, dedicating herself to organizations such as Department of Children and Families, Abby's House, and Jeremiah's Inn. She served on the boards of many community and social service organizations, including for many years the Northborough Zoning Board of Appeals.
The family would be honored if donations in her memory were made to Abby's House, the Worcester Animal Rescue League, the Bosler Humane Society, or to any other charitable organization.
She will be deeply missed.
