Born in Pabiance, Poland, to Rachel Leah and Yisroel Rosenzweig, Sophie was one of five children. Married in Germany in 1946 to Felix Lubka, her beloved husband of blessed memory.
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.” She will never be forgotten.
