Sandra Zober was an actor and the first wife of Leonard Nimoy, with whom she had two children: Julie Nimoy, who was born in 1955, and Adam Nimoy, who was born in 1956. Zober married Nimoy in 1954 while he was working for the United States Army Special Services Detachment as a performer for soldiers at Fort McPherson. While raising their family, Sandra and Leonard observed Jewish holidays, but not the other aspects of Judaism. After 32 years of marriage, Leonard left Sandra on her 56th birthday and divorced her in 1987. In 1988, Sandra said, "I spent the first 15 years being the only one who believed in [Leonard] and struggling with him. I believe I had a lot to do with where he is now." She eventually joined a support group for women divorced from Hollywood stars that was initially called Life After Divorce Is Eventually Sane, but was soon renamed the Hollywood Dumpettes. Throughout their marriage, Sandra and Leonard lived in a house in Westwood, Los Angeles, and Zober continued to live in this house after the divorce until her death at age 83.
