Dec. 25, 1931 — Dec. 19, 2012
Saundra was born in New Haven, Conn., and moved to Los Angeles in her early years. She graduated from Los Angeles High School and attended college in the L.A. area. She married Morton (Tony) Rosenberg in 1959, raising their two children, Alexandra and Nicholas in Los Angeles. After becoming a certified hypnotherapist and then an Ordained Minister of Religious Science, she spent several years in Los Angeles, Springville and the Santa Clarita Valley in California.
Saundra moved to Placerville in 2005 to live near Alix and Brian and their children, Tyler, Cody and Chloe. She was an integral part of her daughter’s and grandchildren’s lives. She served as the Staff Minister at Mountainside Center for Spiritual Living and was also involved with Senior Peer Counseling and the Marshall Medical Center Chaplaincy.
Saundra had an amazing way of inspiring people to want to become their best selves. She had a special gift of knowing just what to say or do to help others and she has transformed many lives. This is her gift to all of us. She was also known to give the best hugs to anyone who was in need of one!
Saundra will be remembered as the daughter of Maurice and Eva Levine (both passed); sister to Allen Lawrence (Suzanne) and Norman Lawrence (passed); mother to Alexandra “Alix” Schmid (Brian) and Nicholas Rosenberg; loving Nana to Tyler, Cody and Chloe Schmid; and aunt to Nani, Paul, Lori, Cheryl, Tracy and Daisy.
A celebration of life will be on Jan. 20, at Town Hall, 549 Main Street in Downtown Placerville, at 1 p.m.
