Sandra Bury

Long Time Resident Of Oak Lawn
Dr. Bury grew up in the Marquette Park neighborhood and attended St. Rita Grammar School and Maria High School. She is the youngest of five children and moved to Oak Lawn with her family in 1979. Her father, a WWII veteran, and her brother still live in Oak Lawn.

A Pro-Business Vision For Oak Lawn
Dr. Bury worked 7 days a week to achieve her dream of owning her own business. In 2005, she purchased the old Southwest Auto Radiator shop and completely rehabbed the building into the state-of-the-art facility it is today.

The practice has grown to nearly six times its former size. Dr. Bury’s facility provides the latest in technology with old-fashioned service and value. She is very proud of the team she has built and the quality of care that is provided.

Many of her patients have been coming to the practice since the 1950s, and she thinks of them as her extended family. She knows firsthand the issues that are important to small businesses and how they impact the community.

When she built her new facility, it was not just an investment in her practice, but it was an investment in Oak Lawn. It was a huge risk to put everything she owned into a run down, vacant building, but she knew it was the right thing to do. She is thankful for the continued support from the community and as Mayor will let the world know that Oak Lawn is open for business.

She is Past-President of the Oak Lawn Rotary Club and has participated on many projects including supporting polio eradication, providing dictionaries for all Oak Lawn third graders, outbound and inbound foreign exchange students, water well projects, medical missions, donations to local charities and yearly scholarships to area high school students.

In 2011 the club wanted to commemorate their fifty years of service with a special project. She assumed the role of Fundraising Chair and helped coordinate the community wide effort to build the Oak Lawn Rotary Club's 9/11 First Responder Memorial.
