Baruch Dayan Ha’emet: Ruth Lasner z”l

Ruth Lasner, mother of Fran Blum, passed away on Shabbat morning, December 12, 2015, in New York.  She was 103 years old and died of natural causes after a fall. Ruth’s body is being flown to Colorado and there will be a grave side service on Tuesday morning, December 15, at 11:30 am at Mountain View Memorial Park, next to the JCC.  People are invited for a shiva call to Fran’s house following the burial and we will send out any additional shiva information soon.
