The Central Park Gardens Tenants’ Association
mourns the loss of one of our founders and long-time president
A retired actor and administrator in the Yiddish theater, Ruth was - always with sharp wit - a wonderful neighbor. As a one-person head of the tenant association, she was available to tenants day and night for decades. She set our association on a sound footing financially and as part of a larger community. Our successes come from the base that she created. After Ruth became frail, our indefatigable neighbor Lenore Richter managed Ruth’s care with the warm help of Amina Bah and other caretakers.
Our condolences go to Ruth’s sister Lola Mendelson, Lola’s son Simon and his wife Sharon, and their extended family.
The funeral will be
Monday, March 20, 2017 at 9:30 AM
at the Plaza Jewish Community Chapel
on Amsterdam Avenue at 90th Street.
You can visit the family, who will be sitting shiva
in Ruth’s apartment, 14F, starting at 4 PM that day.
