She was very active in the sisterhood at Congregation Agudath Israel in Caldwell and Hadassah. She raised funds for over 30 years and was named a Hadassah “Woman of the Year.”
Among her interests were traveling, folk dancing, and tennis.
Predeceased by her husband of 58 years and her siblings, Sonia and Charles, she is survived by her daughter, Ruth (Ben Watson); her son, Dan (Christa Horan); and four grandchildren.
