Selma Einhorn passed away on October 23, 2011. She was technically my step-grandmother but also so much more. Selma was a model of dedication to her late husband, Joe. She was a paragon of strong kinship.
Until the last few years she was a ball of energy who was vitally engaged with the world around her. I still tell Selma stories in class when we talk about longevity, health, and intentional activity. I'll keep telling those stories. She was extraordinarily fortunate in her last years because she had a wonderful daughter, son-in-law (my father), and grandchildren who helped and loved her on a daily basis. She had a good, long life.Above: I don't know what we were laughing at in the photo, probably because Selma's smile stole the moment. Below: Selma's legacy, well, except for Dad. The photo includes her great granddaughter, Madeline.
All the photos were taken at our wedding in 2004 (she was 85). Rest in peace, Selma.
Selma's funeral will be held on November 4, 2011 at the Green Acres Mortuary & Cemetery (401 North Hayden Road, Scottsdale, AZ 85257. Phone: 480-945-2654).
