She was an active Beth Yeshurun Sisterhood member who won the Martha Lea Stein Leadership award, of which she was very proud. Several of her recipes are in the Beth Yeshurun cookbook, “Let My People Eat”.
Connie was an exceptional seamstress, as well as a talented artist. From making paper dolls for her younger sister Helen, to oil painting which she learned in her senior art classes at the JCC, Connie demonstrated her many artistic talents. Her family’s homes are filled with her lovely artwork. She also enjoyed playing Mah Jong most of her life.
She lived in her own home and drove her car until the age of 93, when she fell and broke her hip and moved to the Medallion. At the Medallion, she played black jack and bingo.
Special thanks to her caretakers at the Medallion for the last years of her life, Leslie Alejandro, Mayra Gutierrez and Erika Ramirez.
