Sandy Burress, 62, of Santa Rosa, Calif., died three days before the San Francisco Bay Area instituted the nation’s first shelter-in-place order on March 16. Eight months later, with the COVID-19 pandemic still raging, Sandy’s widow, Cyndi Howell-Burress, and the couple’s five adult children still have not held a memorial service.
