Mrs. Dee- Dee (Miriam) Pelled, member of the Chabad community in Pittsburgh, PA, passed away on Thursday night, 21 Kislev, 5779.
She was 66.
Mrs. Pelled was known for her heart of gold. She was especially careful with two mitzvos, Hachnasos Orchim (inviting guests) and Ahavas Yisroel (loving your fellow Jew).
She was known for her Shabbos table, which was always filled with guests, and making everyone feel welcome and at home.
Dee-Dee was in a terrible car accident on Thursday. Many around the world united in saying Tehillim in her merit, but tragically, she passed away.
Her passing has created an indescribable void amongst her family, friends, and community.
She is survived by her husband Yaakov and children, Shani Pelled, Maya Beck, Anit Silver, Orlee Percia, Adina Pelled and Mordechai Pelled.
She was predeceased by her daughter Yael OBM.
The Levaya will take place today, Friday, at 11:30 am leaving from Gesher HaChaim/Shaare Torah and will proceed past Lubavitch Center and Hillel Academy and then on to burial at Homewood Cemetery.
A fund has been set up to raise $500,000 to help the Pelled family during this difficult time.
Baruch Dayan Ha’emes.
