Alessa was a warm, genuine person who served her Maker and gave nachas to the Rebbe. Her family is a strong, loving one. May they take comfort from knowing that their mother was recognized as a very special woman by many people. BDE.

Even though I never met her...
Rabbi Wircberg has had a most positive influence in my life. We know that we can share credit with her for her husband's influence. She was also a very positive influence. I spoke with her on the phone. Very strong, very full of emuna and bitachon.
(4/13/2018 2:47:32 PM)

A Great Woman,Midos par excellence, Caring, Dedicated Schadchan.
She will truly Beg Hashem for MOSHIACH NOW.
The Family should only know off Simchas From now on.

I didn’t get to know Alissa well, but I do know her very special daughter Chana, tzum lange yohr,. Your mother must have been an amazing person to have brought you up to be who you are. Hashem should comfort you and your family and only have simchos from now on.

She returned her neshama on 28th of nissan
That was Hashem’s sign to us that she did Everything she could to bring Moshiach. And she raised a family that brining Moshiach closer!
May we see her soon with the coming of Moshiach ASAP!

Esther Sternberg remembers...............
41 years ago I was instructed by The Rebbe to put together a book with compositions that young girls wrote about how they love to Bentch Licht. We were suddenly given a deadline and had to be finished by Erev Shabbos Hagodel. The printer said he would do it if we bring it to him by Sunday Morning. Needless to say, we worked through the night of Motzoei Shabbos and at about 5 a.m., Michoel Muchnick,(in whose home we were working), realized that we need one more composition to fill a certain page. But, it was not typeset! He said " Go to Alessa Wircberg, she does typesetting in her home" But it is so early in the morning and we needed to be finished to go to the printer. Michoel Muchnick said that he is sure that by 6 a.m. I could call her. It was great chutzpa on my part, but she agreed and said "no problem" I walked into her home, a few kids were up, and there she was with a siddur in her hand saying Tehillim!!
She stopped everything, typeset our composition, and THANKED ME for giving her the Zchus!!!!!
I will never forget what a pure soul she was.
Just spoke to her about three weeks ago, and when she told me how sick she was, she said "but don't worry"!
What a special Neshomo!! May she be the one to plead to Hashem for the Geula, and be SUCCESSFUL.
May Hashem bring Nechomo to the whole family.
(4/14/2018 8:51:01 PM)
I true loss. Many don't know, but she was the first (or one of, at least) to translate and adapt sichos of the Rebbe for English speakers. She was a phenomenal writer and utilized all of her talents to bring Moshiach. She had indescribable mesiras nefesh. Moshiach NOW!
(4/14/2018 10:49:24 PM)
A true Tsadeket
Forever a beautiful chasid, always smiling and the most humble . May her soul have the highest Aliya ,and may Hashem bless the family with the warmest comfort. Mashiach NOW.
(4/15/2018 2:15:52 AM)
I will miss her ever-present smile !

Amazing person
She was as sweet as could be, and strong as could be.
(4/15/2018 8:56:51 AM)
She was the only Shadchan who never gave up on me when became older and constantly tried to find someone appropriate to what i was looking for. Bh i"m married now.
(4/15/2018 9:44:20 AM)
A newly wed
I went to the mikvah for the first time after my wedding on a Friday night in the summer. At some point in the meal, it dawned on me that I was wearing my contact lenses, and did not remove them to toivel. I walked to the Rav's house, who paskend that I would need to toivel again. Mrs. Wirceberg graciously left her family and guest to open the mikvah for me on a late summer Friday night. I will never forget that night!
(4/15/2018 10:21:26 AM)
Baruch Dayan emes. It is no coincidence that she passed on koach Nissan. Her entire life was devoted to fulfilling the Rebbe’s ratzon with chesed and humility
(4/15/2018 12:55:46 PM)
so sad
Alessa used to type for me as needed. she was the epitome of a conscientious worker who worked long and hard moonlighting beyond her regular job in order to supplement parnassah for her family. she was very self effacing and i never heard a complaint about this from her. she was a truly admirable wife, mother, and ovaid Hashem.
(4/15/2018 1:03:07 PM)
What a loss!!
What a sweet woman! I know her youngest few girls and they are some of the most beautiful people I know. We need moshiach.
