The friends and family of the late Sandra Coke, a well-loved Oaklander whose body was found last week after her disappearance a week earlier, have established a fund for the education of her daughter.

“Sandra Coke enriched the lives of countless people who were fortunate to have crossed personal, professional, and spiritual paths with her. An advocate, a leader, and a friend, Sandra helped us all see the world for what it is while working in pursuit of a brighter vision for what it ought to be. Calls and emails flooding in over the past week make it clear: Sandra inspired us all,” say the founders of the Sandra Coke Fund at

“We lost Sandra in a senseless, devastating way. It’s a loss that has shaken hundreds of people who were touched by this smart, compassionate and dedicated woman.

“Sandra worked hard but she never forgot the importance of having fun. She had the joyful spirit of a child all her life, and she brought that joyful spirit into her parenting and into all her friendships. She was rich in her generosity to her friends, family and those in need,” said a longtime friend.

“Today, we are launching The Sandra Coke Fund to provide for the education and care of her teenage daughter.”
