Faye Ornstein z”l

Faye Ornstein (Feigele bat Getzel v’Masha), mother of Peter Ornstein, passed away Saturday, November 10, 2012, in Delray Beach, Florida shortly after moving into hospice. Peter and his brother Mitch were with her and it was a peaceful end. Faye just celebrated her 90th birthday at the beginning of this month with Peter and Beth. Faye had visited Boulder and Congregation Bonai Shalom many times and was always so full of warmth and energy. She will be greatly missed.

The funeral will likely be on Monday in Florida and Peter and Beth will probably come back to Boulder on Wednesday for a few days of shiva. BJN will post more information when it is available.

Faye is survived by her older sister Goldie, Mitch and Peter and their families Beth, Adam and Joel, Randy, Matthew and David. Hamakom y’nachem – strength and comfort to them along with all the mourners.

Aleihah haShalom – Peace on Faye’s soul.
