After her husband's untimely death, she married Morton Sand, President of Meadville Corporation, a family held company, owners of service stations from Maine to Virginia. An avid lover of the arts, Mrs. Sand is an enthusiastic benefactor of several museums and participates in the City Wall Project, enabling young urban graffiti artists the opportunity to paint murals throughout the city of Philadelphia.

She was present at the formation of the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation in Lee Ducat's family room and remains committed to their cause to this day. Mrs. Sand was active in the women's auxiliary of the Albert Einstein Hospital in Philadelphia, and she enthusiastically supported the Institute of Awareness at the YMHA in Philadelphia, which was a life-altering program for women on the cutting edge of the feminist movement during the 1960's and 70's. Since her husband's death in 2001, Mrs. Sand has been actively involved in the administration of the Sand Family Fund, continuing her support of charitable organizations.
