She was a survivor of the Holocaust, and imprisoned in Westerbork and Theresienstadt concentration camps over a three year period. She came to this country in 1947 and met the love of her life, her Schatzi, our dad, and married him in September 1949. They had three children and 54 wonderful years together. Family was the most important part of Mom’s life. She was a devoted wife, mother and Oma. She was generous with her love and time, enjoying all the special times she shared with her family, especially her great grandchildren, Levi and Aiden. She will be greatly missed. Mom loved to travel, she and dad explored the world together. She enjoyed playing bridge and was an accomplished artist. We are blessed to be able to enjoy seeing her paintings in our homes. She enjoyed all forms of art, including attending the theater, visiting museums, going to concerts and watching music videos with her son in law, Michael. Her cooking and baking skills were amazing, with many original recipes handed down to the next generations. Mom was a woman ahead of her time, with a special regard for fashion, decorating, and health and exercise.
