I will always remember how Grandma referred to me as her "Shayna velt" (which I believe means beautiful world). She was so full of love and was clearly so proud of her entire family.
She was an amazing cook as well, famous in the family for her stuffed cabbage, noodle pudding, egg salad and tuna salad, to name a few things. I still remember the delicious smells that always filled her home.
She truly was the matriarch of the family and I will miss her always. Rest in peace, Grandma.

I always felt welcome in Auntie Ruthie’s home. She was kind , warm and loving. There were always delicious goodies just out of the oven that she would share in her bright kitchen. I will always remember her warm smile and the kindness and love she showed me. Her relationship with my father, Albert Slavin, was also very loving. She adored him and he felt the same. Peace to you Auntie Ruthie.
