ZELDA DREMAN Peacefully, on May 12, 2000 at the Health Sciences Centre, Zelda Dreman passed away at the age of 87 years. She was predeceased by her husband Samuel in 1974; her parents Israel and Esther Silverman; her brothers, Abe and Arthur Silverman and an infant great-granddaughter Sarah. Left to cherish her memory are her two daughters, Sharon Ganetsky (Rube) and Cynthia Brick (Fred). She leaves seven grandchildren, Leonard Ganetsky, Michele Levin (Myles), Marsha Cohen (David), Ira Brick (Susan), Robert Brick (Krista), Lisa Brick and Stuart Brick. As well, she leaves five great-grandchildren, Jeremy and Shawn Levin, Jonathon Brick, Paula Cohen and Aliya Brick. She is survived by two sisters, Pearl Caplan and Sylvia Lerner and a brother and sister-in-law Manny and Lil Silverman and sister-in-law Bessie Silverman. As well, she is survived by her brother-in-law and sister-in-law Joe and Rae Dreman and sister-in-law Esther Dreman. In addition she will be missed by her numerous nieces and nephews. Our mother was an amazing woman who went into business for herself and started Sharons Linen and Gift Shop. She taught us a love of entrepreneurship and inspired us to follow in a similar path. She enjoyed a challenge and became a master bridge player after the death of her husband. In addition to all her other talents, our mother was an outstanding cook and baker and every member of the family has incredible memories of her dinners and home baking. She was active in many Jewish organizations, a past president of the Minnie Churchill Chapter of Hadassah, and was a member of Ort. Until very recently she was completely independent and did not hesitate to drive anywhere. She never complained and was able to put a positive spin on most anything. As such, she was a wonderful role model for her family. Our mother taught us great courage, and even in the face of death never flinched. The family would like to thank the wonderful workers at home care who cared for our mother these last few months, and a special thank you to her neighbour Gita Fox who was always there; as well, the staff at GA4, Health Sciences Centre were outstanding in their compassion and care. To every one of you, we are grateful. Funeral services will be held at Rosh Pina Synagogue, 123 Matheson Ave., on Sunday, May 14, at 2:00 in the afternoon. Interment at Shaarey Zedek Cemetery. Shiva at 153 Forest Park Dr. Flowers are gratefully declined. Donations may be made to the charity of your choice.
