SALLY LUDWIG Sally Ludwig, 85, passed away at her home in Montreal, Quebec on August 7, 2010. She was born, raised and lived most of her adult life in Winnipeg. Sally moved to Montreal with her husband Rubin in 1987. She was predeceased by her loving husband in 1991. Sally is survived by her children Fred and Bonnie, Bill and Roberta, and Mara and Steven. She is also survived by her grandchildren Michelle, Elana and Jennifer, Bryan and Michael, Samuel, Michael, Sean, and Geoffrey, her brother Sam Callan, her sister-in-law Jay Kronson, and many devoted nieces and nephews. Sally and Rube were married in 1945, living first in Winnipeg and then Calgary, while Rube played professional football. They returned to Winnipeg in 1949 to be close to their family and friends and to raise their children. Sally devoted her life to her husband and children. Friday night dinners were the highlight of her week and always associated with wonderful food and desserts and great laughs at the dinner table. Sally loved reading, music and theatre and enjoyed the cultural events available in Montreal. She was also an avid bridge player and enjoyed the intellectual challenge of the game. Clearly though, Sally felt her greatest accomplishment was instilling in her children and grandchildren the importance of education. Never satisfied by past accomplishments, she encouraged all of her family to strive to achieve significant goals in their studies and their lives. She was a loving mother, a doting grandmother, a wonderful friend and will be greatly missed. Funeral services are scheduled on Wednesday, August 11 at 11:30 a.m. with service at the Etz Chayim Synagogue and interment at Rosh Pina Memorial Park. Donations may be made to Division of Hematology, Montreal General Hospital Foundation.
