[ARCHIVED] In memory: former Greenburgh Town Judge Sandra Forster

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of , the Honorable Sandra A. Forster. Our deepest condolences to Judge Forster's family.  Former Greenburgh Town Judge Sandra Forster was a dedicated attorney and public servant who worked hard to make life better for others. At our Town Board meeting on Wednesday May 10th we will start the meeting with a moment of silence in honor and in memory of Sandra Forster. The Women's Bar Asociation said the following about Sandra:

The Honorable Sandra Anita (Rubin) passed away peacefully at home on May 1, 2023 after a year long battle with brain cancer. She was a vivacious, curious and intellectual woman who loved travel, the arts, culture, nature, science, PBS and her beloved New York Times. She was a tomboy who loved playing sports when girls were not welcome to do so, and was not above scolding her bridge partner. Noted for her joie de vive and generous spirit, there was always an extra seat at her table. A lawyer, judge, wife, mother and extraordinary grandmother, she will be dearly missed.

She was born on February 23, 1940 in Manhattan. She grew up in Yonkers, met and married Lloyd Forster in 1961, who predeceased her in 1982. She attended undergrad at University of Rochester and While raising two children, Craig and Dana, she graduated from Pace Law School and was admitted to the bar in 1980. After a thriving legal career she was elected as Judge Town of Greenburgh court where she served from 2000 to 2012.

In 2001 she married Norman Nadel, who survives her. She is survived by her children Craig (Carolyn) and Dana (Gregg Navins), her sister Irene Guros, and five grandchildren Amelia, Samantha, Alexandra, Caley and Erik.

The funeral will be Wed. May 3rd at 10 am at Ballard Durand Funeral Home 72 E. Main Street in Elmsford.
