Ellen Lerman
Ellen Lerman, 80, of West Hartford CT passed away June 22, 2018 after a 3-year valiant battle with colon cancer. She was lovingly cared for by her husband Robert (Bob) of 60 years and daughter Joanne who were at her side. She passed easily and quietly. Ellen was known for devotion, compassion and complete love for all of her children and grandchildren. She was always available to lift their spirits, lend a helping hand and share a kind word. Ellen was a unique person, always giving, always there when you needed her, and a fun person to be with at all times. Ellen was an elegant, sophisticated woman marked by her sense of style and fashion. She loved gardening and took great pride in her home. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother, enjoyed family events, and traveling. She was a valiant fighter, striving every day to overcome her disorder while dismissing and refusing to complain about her cancer. She is survived by her husband Robert of West Hartford and their 4 children Joanne Lerman (West Hartford), Kenneth Lerman (Hartford), Carla Perl (Pound Ridge NY) and Andrea Gerber (Roslyn NY). Her daughter Beth Becker predeceased her in 2006 succumbing to breast cancer. Ellen had 9 grandchildren, Jordan Becker, Alexander Perl, Joshua Becker, Sara Perl, Benjamin Coady, Noah Perl, Harry Gerber, Amanda Gerber and Sydney Gerber. She had a fraternal twin Myra Holzer and sister Joan Glick.
