GOLDIE SINGER With deep sadness we announce the passing of Goldie Singer on July 29, 2012. Born in Hoffer-Sonnenfeld, Saskatchewan on October 18, 1923. Goldie attended the one room schoolhouse, Dravland School in Saskatchewan and later in rural Manitoba the Ulster School and in Winnipeg, Issac Newton, King Edward and St. John's. In her youth she worked at Gunn's Bakery, which she adored, along with the bagels and honey cake. She got her start in retail at Machray's Department Store on Main Street. Many will remember Goldie from Holt Renfrew where she worked for many years as a beloved buyer and saleswoman both in Vancouver and Winnipeg. After retiring, she continued her passion for travelling, taking trips to Alaska, Israel, and Japan. Her gift for making crafts was evident from the knit afghan on her couch to the hand embroidered pictures on her walls. She loved tumbling rocks for jewellery making at the Rock of Ages club and took knitting and quilting classes at the Historic Bleak House. Goldie was the eldest of six children. She leaves behind brothers Sam Singer of Winnipeg, Joe Singer of Toronto and sister Ethel Tennenhouse of Victoria. Jack Singer and Rose Hendler predeceased her. She will be lovingly remembered by her many nieces and nephews: Gary, Esther, Sheila, Micky, Aaron, Rachel, Murray, Leah and Aaron and all of their children. Goldie cherished her friends and there were many, with gratitude to Fay McKay and John Speidel and family for their long friendship and kindness. Also, many thanks to all at the former Sharon Home and at the Simkin Centre. A lifelong volunteer, Goldie served at organizations such as St. John's Ambulance. A graveside burial took place July 31 at Hebrew Sick with Cantor Tracy Kasner Greaves presiding. Many thanks to pallbearers Yale Singer, Mark Singer, Harry Singer, Murray Singer, Earl Singer and Herb Singer and honorary pall bearer Sam Swirsky. Donations to charities of your choice are appreciated.
