Ethel Mensch Getzov (1932 -2021), Deerfield Beach, FL - Loving wife, mother, sister, nana and good friend. Ethel was a lifetime member of Hadassah, and, in addition to her role as a homemaker and mom, she worked, for several years, at Steiger’s Department Store, in Longmeadow, MA. Together with her husband of 60-plus years, Ramon M. Getzov, Ethel was a long-time congregant of Beth El Synagogue, in Springfield, MA, and was also an active member of the Springfield Jewish Community Center's Center Players for many years, as she participated with her husband, “Ray” in a number of that organization’s top-notch musical comedy productions. Ethel is survived by her daughter, Marla Lindenbaum, her son-in-law, Cantor Eric Lindenbaum, and her two grandchildren, Joseph and Adina Lindenbaum (Cooper City, FL); her son, Stuart M. Getzov and his wife, Michelle Getzov (Evanston, IL), and their daughters, Monica and Colleen Dougherty; and her son Harry J. Getzov (Delray Beach, FL). Ethel’s love, strength, and sparkling sense-of-humor touched the lives of many people over her long adventure. She will, undoubtably, be missed by all who had come to know her over her many years of joyful life.

A funeral service for Ethel will be held Wednesday, October 13, 2021 from 12:00 PM to 12:30 PM at Menorah Gardens & Funeral Chapels, 21100 West Griffin Road, Southwest Ranches, FL 33332.

Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the Getzov family.

I did not know Ethel well although I learned so much through her most loving children. Their love for her and support shined through in so many ways.

May her memory be a blessing and live through her children, their children and through the gift that is given through Harry’s music and education with older adults.

With deepest regret…

Fondly, Marlene
