Ed Yudin - 4 days ago

Dear Sheila - I was shocked and disheartened to hear of Sydney's passing. I wish I had spent more time with him over the years as I always admired Syd and he was a truly interesting guy with good character. I appreciated what Syd did for my mom, for example, when he got her a job with Coleco. Believe it or not, I remember attending your marriage 60 years ago as a five year old! It was the first one I remember attending a wedding. You and Syd made just such a perfect couple! I have vivid memories of you and Sid dancing together at numerous family simchas. You were always the best at that! I know the memories of your rich life together and your caring family will help ease the loss of this wonderful man. Edward and Annie.

mavis casey - 18 days ago

We rarely meet, in our lives, a man quite like Syd Greenberg. I had the good fortune of being an employee of his for twenty years. In that time I knew him as a gentleman - a man of honour, honesty and kindness. He lived as we all wish to live - true to his word always, facing adversity with grace and a wonderful listener, which to me was one of his greatest assets. In our twenty years of knowing each other we shared stories of life, love, death and suffering. In all of that his advice and love touched me greatly. I will never forget Syd, and I wish him all the best in his journey beyond.

Eric Berman - 18 days ago

Sheila, and family..., we are so sorry for your loss. The news of Syd’ ‘s illness was devastating, the news of his passing difficult to comprehend. We would meet several times a year and Syd would always be smiling, discussing about his next trip. We are going to miss those brief encounters. We are in Minneapolis with our kids, so we will miss the funeral, unfortunately. Be strong and may his memories give you the needed strength at this time. Pola and Eric

Dear Gail and family So sorry to hear of your dad's passing Gail. I met your dad when we were all at a cafe downtown, before Anna's dad's funeral. Your dad was so warm, friendly and engaging. He recognized my last name and we figured out that he had my Aunt Lily as a teacher many moons ago. Thinking of you and hoping in time that you will find peace and comfort in all the wonderful memories you have of him.

CAROLE SHILLER - 19 days ago

Dear Sheila and family, Heartfelt condolences go out to all of you on the loss of a very special guy. May many good memories of him be of comfort at this sad time.

Carol & Harvey Gold - 20 days ago

Dear Sheila, Heartfelt condolences from a couple who both happen to be true cousins. We've both seen little of you since Val Morin (Great times) For the last 51 years, a lot of geography has separated us:we wish we could have spent more time together. (I'm talking now) Know that we loved and respected you both. Everything grows with time except grief. Shorten that grief by concentrating on great family memories. One adage that always seems to comfort us. "The death of a caterpillar is the birth of a butterfly. Love, Carol and Harvey

Goldie Warshawsky - 20 days ago

Dear Sheila, I am so sad to hear of Sydney's passing. We went to Devonshire School and I remember him in my class every year. When he married you, we met again as your parents and mine were good friends. When I worked at JPPS on Van Horne, I would bump into you and Sydney very often. It was always pleasant and fun. My thoughts and condolences are with you and your family. Goldie Kaplansky Warshawsky

Perany Moise-Hassan - 20 days ago

Dear Sheila and family, my heartfelt condolences on Syd's passing. I was so very sad to hear this terrible news especially coming on the eve of Rosh Hashana. I came to Canada in 1949 and Syd and I were in the same grade 5 class . I was as they said a greener but my 1st Valentine card was from Syd I guess he knew that I hadn't made too many friends as yet. Yes he was a real mentch. A couple of weeks ago I saw the 2 of you getting into a taxi in front of the JGH and I wrote to ask him if everything was Ok, that is when he wrote back to say that he was in the hospital. Not fair.

Dan and Liat Lev-Ary Goldstein& - 20 days ago

Dear Sheila and family, We are deeply sad to hear of Syd's passing. Syd was a true mench, one of a kind, like we don't have or meet nowadays. We will forever remember our interactions with both of you, always together, always smiling and having fun with each other and everyone around you. From our early days as your next court yard's neighbors to the many gatherings at shul over the years. Syd was always warm, kind and genuinely interested in us and our children. Syd always had kind words to say and a sparkle in his gentle eyes. The fact that he passed away on Shabbat is yet another powerful testimony to what a great and righteous man his was (a real tzadik). When I told my children that Syd passed away, Talia (6 yo) told me: "oh, no mommy! Syd?? Auntie Sheila's husband that we went to their house a while back? I am so sad". We will miss you, Syd. May your memories of him give you comfort and may he rest in peace. Baruch Dayan Ha'Emet. Love, Liat and Dan Eliane, Jonathan, Nathaniel and Talia

Joelle - 20 days ago

Dear Sheila and family, I'm so very sorry to hear about Syd's passing. Syd always had a way of making me smile when we would talk in shul, and he always had a kind word to say. May his memory be a blessing. Love Joelle

Harvey Mandelker and family - 20 days ago

Sheila (and family): I was aware that Syd was not doing well. He was continually in our thoughts and prayers both in and out of DE. When I heard that Syd passed, I was saddened by the news for many reasons. Syd was always a mensch both to me and my family. I remember with great fondness the times we spoke together at DE and his concern for how I was doing and how "Noah " lights up the Synagogue. He always had a nice thing to say about Joelle's singing; and that I think, showed his sense of humanity. Something in short supply in this "all about me world." I also remember "Kent Avenue" Syd used to play catch with my Father. I also remember him as a good Father to Marlene and Gail. I know you have a son as well, but I do not know his name.. I am sure he was a good Father to him as well. He was so proud of them. There was always a glimmer in his eye when he spoke of them.. A proud husband, Father and Grandfather. And, he loved you... Sheila . I could see it in his eyes. You and Syd were inseparable.. When I would see you, I saw Syd and the reverse.. Joined at the hip as the saying goes. I understand that when he passed away, he was at home.. With you... In the home you both built together.. AND HE PASSED AWAY ON SABBATH . What a fitting end to a life well lived. Peaceful, dignified and surrounded by love. On behalf of myself and my family, our condolences BARUCH DAYAN EMET Harvey (Herschel) Mandelker, Joelle Dayan, Joshua Dayan Mandelker, Talia Dayan Mandelker and Noah Dayan Mandelker.
