Barbara Wilson z”l

star-of-davidBarbara Joyce Diamond Wilson (Blumele Yocheved bat Feigel v’Berel), Beth Rosenshein’s mother, passed away early on Sunday morning in California.  Barbara and her husband were members of Bonai Shalom in the few years they lived in the area. Beth is so grateful to Hospice for the care they gave her and the dignity to die peacefully and comfortably.  Barbara will be having a military funeral today in San Diego.  Beth will be sitting shiva at her home with the family, but there will not be any shiva minyanim.  If you want to visit or bring food, please call first.

Peace on Barbara’s neshama – alehah hashalom.  Strength and comfort to Beth and all her family and her brothers Steve and Grant.  Hamakom y’nachem – may God grant them all comfort among all the mourners.

  1. As a follow-up to the announcement of the loss of Beth Rosenshein's mother Barbara Wilson at the beginning of the week, there will be one opportunity for the community to gather and to end the shiva on Tuesday morning February 12th at 7:30 am. Traditionally, each part of a day counts as a full day of shiva from after the burial, so we end with a shacharit service and a symbolic walk around the block.

    Please offer your presence to support Beth and her family in thier mourning at the Rosenshein's home: 434 Orchard Way, Louisville, CO 80027

    Blessings of strength and comfort to Beth and her family and peace on the soul of Blumele Yocheved bat Feigel v'Berel.
