BRASLAWSCE: Aleen Elizabeth Bregman Braslawsce, longtime resident of Valley Drive, passed away Tuesday, February 10, 2015, at the Good Samaritan Hospice at Heritage Valley following a lengthy illness. She was 73.
Born in Pittsburgh, Pa., August 3, 1941, she was a daughter of the late David and Wilma Hantman Bregman. A hairdresser at one time, she was a devoted mother and wife. She was an active member of Congregation Beth Shalom where she was a past president of the Sisterhood and had been a Sunday school principal for many years.
A life member of the Hadassah, she was also active with the East Liverpool City Hospital Auxiliary at one time and held membership in the Crystal Chapter 18 Order of the Eastern Star, the Ladies Shrine, and High 12 Club. She was a member of the East Liverpool Pottery Festival Association for many years.
Above all things, Aleen’s family and friends came first in her life. She would never miss a chance to send a card from “Aleen’s Card Shop” and always was sure to make others feel special, never missing an opportunity to make others smile.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Paul Braslawsce, whom she married August 20, 1961. She was also preceded in death by her brother, Charles Bregman, and a brother-in-law, Harry Barlow.
Left to cherish her memory are her four sons, Benjamin Braslawsce, and his wife Heather, of Copley, Ohio; William Braslawsce of Beaver, Pa.; Ian Braslawsce of Columbus, Ohio; and Erik Braslawsce, and his wife Emily, of Calcutta.
She will be fondly remembered by her nine grandchildren: Jacob, Jonah, Samantha, Zeesha, Zane, Grace, Hannah, Phillip and Sidney Braslawsce.
Other survivors include four sisters-in-law, Carol Bregman of Monroeville, Pa.; Zelda Braslawsce of North Miami Beach, Fla., Betty Barlow, and her husband Alan, of White Oak, Pa.; and Hilda Landis of Pittsburgh, as well as one brother-in-law, Joseph Braslawsce, and his wife Ellen, of Arizona.
Gravesite service will be on Thursday, Feb. 12 at 1 p.m. at B’nai Jacob Cemetery, where Aleen’s niece, Cantor Cheryl Klein, will officiate.
Immediately following the service, family and friends will continue to celebrate Aleen’s life at the Dawson Family Center.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Good Samaritan Hospice at Heritage Valley, 1000 Dutch Ridge Road, Floor 4B, Beaver, PA 15009.
