Hilda (Braslawsce) Landis


LANDIS: Hilda (Braslawsce) Landis, on Sunday, May 13, 2018, Mother’s Day, at the age of 90. She is loved and missed by many, and survived by her children Richard M. Landis (Linda Joseph), Sally Gawler (Jay Gawler), John R. Landis (Kendra Coyle), Kimberly J. Landis (Torino Von Jones); her sisters Betty Barlow (Alan Balsam) and Zelda Braslawsce. She is also survived by her eight grandchildren, Alexandra and Andrew Gawler, Aaron Landis, Golden and Sage Landis-Von Jones and Louise, Amelia, and Charlotte Landis. She was the favorite aunt of many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her son, Daniel J. Landis (surviving spouse Anne Landis), brothers Harry Barlow, Paul Braslawsce, and Joe Braslawsce; her former spouse, Myron S. Landis. Hilda was sometimes bohemian and always witty. For decades, “…Fat and sassy…” was her catch-phrase response to “How are you?” She was proud of her cooking, gardening, and pretty-punch needling; loved to play games especially Mahjong, and was always eager to teach and learn new things. Those who know her well can appreciate Hilda’s final request that her body be donated to science. And how she would laugh at the humorous irony of her passing on the holiday devoted to celebrating Mothers! Service to celebrate her life to be held Wednesday, May 23, 10:30am, at Jewish Association on Aging (JAA) Community Room, 200 JHF Drive, Pittsburgh, PA, 15217. Contributions may be made to Sivitz Hospice, 200 JHF Drive, Pgh., PA 15217.
