Hymie Abramson 6/4/1924 – 1/9/15 Hymie Abramson passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on January 9, 2015. Hymie is preceded in death by his son Bobby Abramson, brothers Sam Abramson, Harry Abramson, brother-in-law Philip Kligman, sisters-in-law Rose Greenberg, Doris Abramson and Ida Markman, and parents Sarah and Haskel Abramson. He is survived by his wife and love of his life of 62 years, Blanche Abramson, children Randy Abramson, Joni Hoffman, son-in-law Michael Hoffman, daughter-in-law Rosemary Abramson, grandchildren Andrew and Matthew Hoffman, Sean and Brett Abramson, and Ryan and Carly Abramson. Also, numerous nieces and nephews, sisters-in-law Charlotte Abramson, Edith Kligman and Fay Kligman, brothers-in-law Harold Markman and Sidney Kligman. Hymie will be remembered by his family and friends for his contagious smile and sweetness. In the early years Hymie attended San Jacinto High School and served in the Navy. He loved sports and was a huge Houston Oiler fan that rarely missed a home game. Hymie was a partner at Metropolitan Fine Furniture with his brothers Harry and Sam. He was in charge of advertising long before computers. Creating ads took a lot of patience and Hymie never once got angry or complained when an ad had to be changed after spending hours on it. Later in life Hymie and Blanche founded Blanche Fine Jewelry. Hymie greeted every customer with a smile and a kiss hello. In his 90 years he was never once known to raise his voice. Hymie overcame many health hardships over the years including the loss of an eye but never once complained or lost his spirit. The family would like to give special thanks to Dr. Stephen Lapin, Dr. Shari Rubin, caregivers Ayaka Kalsum (AK) and daughter Rae, Vic Berry, Jasmine Green and the loving team at Brookdale Senior Living (formerly The Hampton.) Funeral services took place on Friday, January 9, 2015 at Congregation Beth Yeshurun, interment followed at Beth Yeshurun Allen Parkway Cemetery. Pallbearers were: Andrew Hoffman, Matthew Hoffman, Sean Abramson, Brett Abramson, Ryan Abramson, Carly Abramson. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the charity of your choice.
