Raised in Tribute:$706.85
Sandra “Sandie” Kahn (née Schroeder) passed peacefully with her family by her side on August 22, 2022 after an arduous battle with Parkinson’s Disease.
Born on June 20, 1950 to her loving parents, the late Norine and Bertram Schroeder, Sandie was raised in Cherry Hill, NJ with her beloved brothers Craig, Glenn and the late Doug, and her sister and very best friend Cory Sage.
Sandie attended Cherry Hill West High School and was active in the drama club. It was in her senior year that she met her husband of 53 years, Gary, with whom she raised three adoring children, Gary II (Rachel), Greg and Cory Fedore. Sandie was a devoted mother and her children were the center of her universe. Her love and enthusiasm knew no bounds.
In 2000, Sandie became a grandmother, affectionately known as “Sammie,” to the lights of her life Olivia, Stella, Ava, Ashton, Grayson, Charlie and Wyatt. Countless days were spent feeding the geese at Paint Works, eating ice cream, making beautiful crafts and walking the boards in Ocean City. Sandie was a fixture at plays, concerts and sporting events – always with her bright smile and encouraging words. Even while her health began to deteriorate, Sandie maintained her characteristically positive outlook on life and never missed an opportunity to be with her family.
Sandie’s passion for music and dancing translated into 34 years as a Jazzercise instructor. She met through her classes many wonderful friends who enjoyed countless lunches and girls’ trips together. Sandie was extremely creative. Her gardens were magazine-worthy. She loved spending time outside and found so much joy in creating gifts for all of the special people in her life. Parkinson's Disease slowly robbed Sandie of everything she loved. It was heartbreaking to witness.
As her family, WE BELIEVE IN A CURE. Eighty-eight cents of every dollar spent by The Michel J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research goes to research programs. It is our sincerest wish that through donations made in honor of Sandie, her father and countless others who have braved this fight, a cure is found and there is a future without Parkinson's.
The Michael J. Fox Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson's disease and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson's today. The Foundation is the world's largest nonprofit funder of Parkinson's research, with more than $800 million in high-impact research funded to date.Get Involved
