    She was a great-great grandmother

    Our bubby was a regal matriarch who was zoche to see great-great grandchildren and she knew them all by name! Even when she wasn’t feeling well, she ensured that the cookie jar was full for the great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren. Her hachnosas orchim together with Zaidy z”l was legendary and many bochurim based through her home. Even in her later years, bochurim slept in her living room over Tishrei.We will miss her terribly. May she be a gutte better for us all and may we be zoche to see the time when הקיצו ורננו שוכני עפר והיא בתוכם בהתגלות מלכנו משיחנו תיכף ומיד ממש
    Her grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren, Yisrael and Sara Rosenfeld and family,

      I was one of the many recipients of their hachnosas orchim…. such a warm house…..(and always huge portions. “Host noch gornisht gegesn”…)
      she maintained her dignity and humor and warmth into her old age.
      She will be missed

    Her great grandchildren are also Shluchim – Chabad of RARA in Australia to name some.
