Sila Ben-Ari (Timmel Chaya bat Yitzhak v;Tzetl), mother of Paula Erez, died Sunday night in hospice in Florida after a challenging two-year illness. She was 84 and is survived by her three children Rina, Paula and her twin brother Salomon, five grandchildren and three great grandchildren. Paula and her siblings were there throughout their mother’s final days. Paula will remain in Florida with her family throughout the shiva and return to Boulder the middle of next week. There may be a memorial gathering later on in Boulder.
Shalom al nishmat Timmel Chaya – peace on Sila’s soul. Hamakom y’nachem – may God grant Paula and all her family strength and comfort in their mourning.
