Isabelle Harriet Friedman


FRIEDMAN: Isabelle Harriet Friedman of Monroeville, previously of Johnstown. April 25, 1926 – October 26, 2017. Born in Somerset, Pa. Daughter of Louis and Pauline Weiss of Somerset and later, Philadelphia. Sister of Julia Hoffman, Sylvia Weiss, Rose Weiss, and Norman Weiss, all deceased. Surviving are her husband of 67 years, Wallace L. Friedman of Monroeville, daughters Norma Samide (Jeff) of Ligonier, Barbara Alenia of Oregon, and Phyllis Shapiro (Sam) of Monroeville; grandchildren Sean Shapiro of Pittsburgh, Matthew Shapiro of Monroeville, and Rosie Samide of Boston. Isabelle’s greatest joy in life was her family, her children and later her three grandchildren. She spent countless hours with them, reading to them, playing games, coloring, and nurturing their creativity with “toys” such as her button collection and kitchen pots and utensils. All three developed into fine young adults and their Grammy was very proud of them. Isabelle had volunteered for an animal shelter and meals on wheels program, so memorial contributions may be made to Humane Animal Rescue, 6926 Hamilton Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15208 or any other local animal rescue/shelter; or any local food bank or meals on wheels. There will be no shiva/home visitation.
