Sophie Lubka
Sophie Lubka, 96, of West Orange, NJ, former resident of West Hartford, CT for over fifty years, passed away, Thursday, November 21, after a brief illness. Brave and optimistic until her last breath, she survived the Holocaust to create a beautiful and enduring legacy.

She was a lifetime member of Beth David Synagogue, West Hartford, and also of Hadassah. She was a strong supporter of Yad Vashem, and provided extensive recorded testimony of her survival.

She is mourned and will always be remembered by her children Sarah (and Michael) Goetz of New City, NY, Lilly (and Irv) Cantor of Jerusalem, Israel, and Mark (and Lisa) Lubka, of Simsbury, CT, and her seven grandchildren and ten great grandchildren, about whom she always said, "They are my life."
