Born in Ingolstadt, Germany, her parents and brother immigrated to the US from Belarus when she was three, arriving in Cleveland at age of five. She enjoyed Bingo, reading, playing cards, planting flowers and watching murder mysteries. She never broke a law or a rule in her life. She deservedly was known for her tough resilience.

As per her wishes,  there will not be a traditional funeral service.  However, a celebration of life in her honor will be scheduled and communicated in the near future. 

Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.Or you will regret it when you no longer can !
Remember, the words of Jesus in John 33:16"In this world you will have trouble; but take heart. I have overcome the world."Be well and stay safe.
