Baruch Dayan HaEmet – Sylvia Wohl z”l

Sylvia Wohl, mother of Stephanie Greenberg, died very early the morning of July 4th at Balfour Retirement Community.  Sylvia was two months from her 104th birthday!!! 

Stephanie has been a very devoted and loving daughter, visiting her mother every day.

Sylvia was absolutely beloved by everyone – family, friends and all of her carers who adored her.  Her positive, loving presence will be missed. 

Arrangements are being made for a graveside funeral in Philadelphia and Stephanie will end the shiva back in Boulder.  There will be one night of shiva this Wednesday evening July 10th at 7:00 pm at Stephanie and Alan’s home, 2999 Tincup Circle, Boulder 80305.

Sylvia is mourned by Stephanie and Alan, Stephanie’s brother Charlie and grandchildren Ben, Sara (who just got married two weeks ago) and Hannah.  Strength, comfort and long life to the mourners and a peaceful transition for Sylvia’s neshama.

Blessings, Rabbi Marc
