WEINGARTEN: Julia Weingarten, aged 96, died peacefully on March 21st, at The Charles Morris Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, under the dedicated care of The Sivitz Hospice. Julia was born on March 28, 1917 in Znatzevo, Czechoslovakia, the daughter of Ephraim and Blima Zelovic. Julia thoroughly enjoyed people, life and the outdoors. She was a self‐taught seamstress, a great cook and baker, loving mother, adoring aunt, and proud grand and great‐grandmother. She was a survivor of Auschwitz, who willingly shared her experiences, particularly with school children, turning this sad episode into an inspiration and life lesson for many people. In addition to raising three children, she found time to volunteer at Gemilas Chesed Synagogue and various local organizations. She is survived by two sons, Fred (Cindy) of Middlesex, VT and Allen (Barbara) of Chicago, IL, and one daughter, Elaine Gordon Weiman (Stephen) of Denver, CO; as well as grandchildren, great‐grandchild, nieces, nephews and a number of relatives and close friends. Graveside services were held on March 23 at Gemilas Chesed Cemetery in White Oak. Arrangements were made by the Chevra Kadisha Jewish Burial Society of Pittsburgh. In lieu of flowers, contributions to the Jewish Association on Aging, or The Alzheimer Association would be appreciated.
