Sorry for your loss. I don’t know if you know me but my grandmother was Leah Warnick married to Issac L. Goldberg. I had met your mom a few times at family gatherings in N.O. At her age it is truly a celebration of life. All the best, Myron & Marcie Goldberg.
p.s. Sue Singer sent me this info...

Carole Sue, I knew your parents from my days at TUTS and also from Beth Israel. I remember Wilma as a dedicated board member of TUTS. Whenever I saw her at temple, Wilma was always in great spirits and enjoyed a good visit. My condolences are with you and Jennifer for the loss of your mom, especially at this difficult time.
