EDELSTEIN: Ruth Evelyn Edelstein, beloved wife of the late Bernard Edelstein and a long time resident of Pittsburgh, died February 22 at the age of 97. Ruth had been a snowbird for about 35 years when she decided, at age 96, to move to Florida permanently. She spent the last 8 months of her life thoroughly enjoying the Assisted Living she had moved into in Lake Worth, FL. Her greatest joy was her family. She had two daughters, Molla Siegel (Gary) and Marsha (Marly) Stone Franks. She is survived by two grandsons, Matthew Siegel (Erika) and Stephen Siegel (Pippa) and five great grandchildren; Avi, Marley, Betty, Rosa, and Levi, who was born on February 14, 2019. Ruth was a member of B’nai B’rith, Beth Shalom Synagogue, a proud owner of a Hole in One at Schenley Park Golf Course, and an active participant in the Pittsburgh Meals on Wheels program. She will long be remembered at “Little Ruthie” and as a great volleyball player both at the YMHA and in the water at several area swimming pools. Service and Interment was held at Adath Jeshurun Cemetery. Arrangements entrusted to the Ralph Schugar Chapel, Inc. www.schugar.com
