Baruch Dayan HaEmet – Tillie Singer z”l

Tillie Singer (Tobi Rivkah bat Shmaryahu), Howard Singer’s mother (Valerie’s mother-in-law),  passed away very peacefully on the morning of May 7, 2019 in Maryland. She was 103 and a half years old!
Tillie was charming and interactive until just a few weeks ago, and lived a very full life. She loved bowling, which she finally gave up in her 90s when she became blind in one eye and did not want to hurt the average for the team.  Tillie was very active in Bnai Brith and other organizations and she will be missed.
The funeral will be on Friday morning in Maryland. There will be one night of shiva minyan back in Boulder at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, May 15 at Howard and Valerie’s house, 5365 Centennial Trail, Boulder, CO 80303.
Tillie is mourned by her brother Bernie, children Howard (Valerie) and Barbara, her four grandchildren Jonathan, Rachel, Melissa and Stacey and four great grandchildren Myer, Dagny, Gwendolyn and William.
Hamakom y’nachem – strength and comfort to the mourners.
Peace on the soul of Tobi Rivkah.
