Michele Kantor beloved mother, grandmother and sister passed away Monday, January 11, 2016 after a courageous battle with lung cancer. Michele was born on January 6, 1948 in Forest Hills, New York.

Michele is survived by her children Lisa Birenbaum (Cory) and Amy Kaufman (Jeff). She was a loving grandmother to Zachary, Aaron and Sarah Birenbaum and Daphne and Ian Kaufman. She was a devoted sister to David Gummers.
Michele spent her life taking care of family. First her husband when he became ill then her father and after his passing her brother. She enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and loved attending their events. She was known for famous chicken soup which she brought to all family Jewish Holiday gatherings. When she was not spending time with her family, she was working as a real estate agent and substitute teacher. She was great with kids and they adored her. She often subbed at her grandkids’ schools so that she could see them during the day.
She will be missed always and never forgotten.
