Phyllis Dinhoffer (Zipporah), mother of Kara Mertz, died on September 14, 2018 at her home at The Carillon, just three months after her beloved husband Joel. Phyllis was surrounded by her daughters and her grand children as she passed away. Her grandson Aaron said “while her health wasn’t great, she truly passed away of a broken heart after having to say an unexpected goodbye to my pop, the love of her life, just three months ago..She was confident, brilliant, savvy and beautiful.”
The funeral will be in New York on Monday, September 17, and there may be one shiva minyan on Tuesday morning before Yom Kippur. Details to follow.
May Zipporah’s neshama be at peace. Strength and comfort to Kara, Steve, Aaron, Zoe and all the mourners.
