Sorry for your loss. Your many memories will be with all of you forever. I worked with Al many years ago at Merck-Medco in Dr. Calls. He used to talk about his and Florence trips to California to visit family.

Our mom passed away peacefully at the Los Angeles Jewish Home on August 10, 2020. She’s survived by her husband Alvin of 71 years, sons Sam (Erica) and Bert (Ruth), daughter Reeva Hunter (Stuart), grandchildren Lia, Rachel (Landon), Ben, Jordan and Ava, and great-grandson Andes. A New York native, she became an R.N. in the United States Cadet Nurse Corps in 1947, which was followed by earning Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Nursing & Health Education at SUNY-Oneonta and Adelphi University. One of the country’s early Nurse Practitioners, she enjoyed a long & rewarding nursing career in New York State and Florida, and taught nursing at the college level. In 1992 she retired as an orthopedic nurse at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa (BayCare). Over the years she served with a variety of civic and charitable causes, including the Brandeis Women, the Lupus Foundation, the National Parkinsons Foundation, Red Cross and others. She was active for 38 years in Congregation Schaarai Zedek in Tampa, Florida. Internment and a private memorial service followed on August 18 at the National Veterans Cemetery at Riverside, California, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. She will be truly missed by her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren as well as numerous extended family members and many loved friends.
