Baruch Dayan HaEmet: Ariella Hartshorn z”l


I wanted to let you know the sad news of the death of Ariella Hartshorn, who had been a member of Bonai Shalom, where she was involved in the sisterhood and frequently attended events, classes and services. Many people at Bonai knew her and her larger than life personality. Ariella has had health challenges for years and she died peacefully early s on the morning of January 27th at her home at Golden West. Her children, Hadar and Sharon, arrived in Boulder Thursday afternoon, and Rachel Amaru has been working closely with them today and will be officiating a memorial service on Monday.

From Rachel:
“The service will take place on Monday, January 30th, at 10 am at the Chautauqua trail head.  Hopefully people will be able to park in the lot; otherwise, there is parking on the side streets (unfortunately, there is a lot of construction on Baseline so you cannot park there). Once you start walking up the trail head, you will very shortly see a cutaway to your left, which is where we will be gathering.There will be no set-up seating. If you need to sit during the service, please do bring a camp chair, or some other portable folding chair. I will have my cell phone on until 10:00 am that morning, so please call me if you have any problems finding us, 720.352.5552
Shalom al nishmata – peace on Ariella’s soul. hamakom y’nachem – strength and comfort to the mourners.
