Sondra Adelson Bernzweig Memorial

Sondra (Adelson) Bernzweig, age 80, passed away Friday, September 29th.


It is with a heavy heart, that Michael and Daniel Bernzweig announce that our mother, Sondra (Adelson) Bernzweig, age 80, passed away Friday, September 29th.


Sondra founded Detector Electronics Corp. with her husband and partner David in 1983 in the garage of their home. Together they marketed David’s patented invention under the DepthMaster® brand name. Their story is a testament to the fact that good old fashioned hard work and perseverance can pay off. They moved to a business facility and the company grew quickly in the years that would follow. Her company went on to become the first online retailer of metal detectors.


Sondra traveled the country and the world. She attended organized treasure hunts and rallies where she shook hands and met face to face with customers, dealers, distributors and manufacturers. Her business philosophy and lasting legacy are an inspiration to all.


Sondra was one to share her knowledge with all. She touched the lives of countless individuals. She earned the respect and confidence of those around her and left the world a better place.

Wishing her eternal Love and Peace.

Michael and Daniel Bernzweig
