Baruch Dayan Emes

Hilda Goldish, a'h - better known as Grandma (or "Grandma Cleveland"). She was 95 years old. She had the biggest smile in the world, worked for the Hebrew Academy greeting card room until she was 87 years old, drank Coke (and only Coke) from 10-90, and lived in the same house on Shannon Road for nearly 60 years. She loved nothing more than little kids - "until they talk back" and her biggest complaint in life was that "that guy" on Jeopardy (her favorite show) who kept winning "wasn't letting other people have a turn". She also had a huge yellow cookie jar that was always full, a cheap plastic basket stuffed with strawberry (or Elite lemon) candies, and that bottom drawer in the kitchen with some of the oldest (but best) toys you've ever seen.

The accompanying picture is the last time we saw her, Pesach time.

The funeral will be in Cleveland on Sunday at 3:00pm at Berkowitz Kumin Bookatz.

Baruch Dayan Emes. We love you Grandma.
