July 16, 1970 - January 14, 2017
Sandra Lynn Steiner, a devout Christian and loving mother, daughter, sister and aunt, died on Jan. 14, of complications from cancer at Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Zion. The Lake Bluff resident was 46. Born in Mount Clemens, Michigan, and a 1992 graduate of Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, where she was a Delta Zeta sorority member, Sandra worked in Chicago in the marketing department of Lifes2good, a company headquartered in Ireland that brings to market clinically proven health and beauty products that improve people’s lives. A competitive swimmer in her youth and an avid runner in her adult years, Sandra — alongside her Imerman Angel, Robyn Bumgarner — ran in an Evanston 5K race 10 days after her final chemotherapy treatment following her first bout with cancer in 2012. “Sandy loved so hard, and she … was … loved,” said Steiner’s fiancé, Joel Lerner, who proposed to Sandra on Nov. 23, 2016, on a beach in the Bahamas. “There’s this picture, taken before I met her, of her and her son [Colin Gregg, now 16] running together and holding hands in an alley in Chicago after church one Sunday. The looks on their faces — you could tell how much they loved each other and how they were each other’s rock.” Sandra was preceded in death by her father, Tom. Other survivors include her mother, Sue Coffee (Dave); brothers, Chris (Sarah) and Tom (Chelsea); sister, Laura Wood (Mitch); nephews, Caleb, Oliver and Ethan; nieces, Evelyn and Eleanor; and former husband, David Gregg. Sandra’s funeral will be held at Christ Church in Lake Forest on Jan. 21, beginning at 11:33 a.m. (Her favorite number was 33.) The church is located at 100 Waukegan Road. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the For the Love of Sandy Trust, c/o Chris Steiner, 1151 Evergreen Drive, Lake Forest, IL, 60045.
