On January 1, 2021, Lynne S. Gilberg beloved mother of Suzanne Gilberg-Lenz and Jay Gilberg,
“Ommie” to Jaron and Georgia Lenz and Sophie and Emily Gilberg, passed away after a valiant fight against lung cancer. Lynne was born on September 8, 1941 in Chicago, Illinois and raised in Glencoe where she attended New Trier High School. She then attended Mills College in Oakland, CA and eventually moved to Los Angeles where she resided for most of her adult life. She was an avid reader, an armchair genealogist, an intrepid traveler, and hiker, collecting many lifelong friends along the way. Although she started as a teacher, she was the consummate 1970’s “stay at home” mom to her own kids and a second mom to many others. She was an early assistant curator of Jewish objects for The Skirball Museum in Los Angeles, a book editor for Sunset Books and Magazine and a professional organizer. For her 60th birthday she strapped on a backpack and hiked solo for 6 weeks along the famous Campostela Del Santiago pilgrimage trail in Spain and a couple years later hiked across northern France. She loved her weekly hikes in the Santa Monica Mountains. Her handwriting was perfect. She was kind and thoughtful but suffered no fools. She was reliable and witty. She made the best Thanksgiving stuffing ever. She will forever be missed and cherished.
