Phyllis and Robert Friedma - 18 days ago

Dear Harvey and family, Please accept our heartfelt sympathy on the passing of your beautiful and special Maxine.She was a woman who was accomplished in many ,ways and someone who was beautiful inside and out. When my parents sold their house on Victoria Avenue I had the task of finding them an apartment at the 4300 where many of their friends had moved,(My mother's sister was living there).Soon after they left for Florida I hurried down to 4300 to get a 2 bedroom apt. for them.Alas when I went to the rental office there were none to be had except for this one apartment which was on hold for someone who was coming to see it that afternoon ! I convinced the girl to "show it to me now", as it was just what we wanted for my parents. who had a baby grand piano. I called my brother to rush down to see the "flat"( as my mother referred to it ) and while waiting for him to meet me there,I was chatting with the rental agent..I told her that my father was a doctor and she said that the last tennant was Dr. George Strean!' I told her that the Streans were good friends of my parents. It would be perfect for my parents because there was a corner in the living room for a baby grand piano.When I called my parents (long distance) they were very familiar with the apt. as they had been there many times over the years.And so they moved into the 4300 upon their return from Florida !!Thus my belief in "things or events are often bashert" in our families.May your memories of happy times ease your sorrow as you morn.Maxine was indeed a very special and accomplished woman.May she rest in peace ! Phyllis and Robert

Dear Harvey, Eric, Terry and Karen: It's been a long time since we've seen one another but that doesn't diminish the memories or warm feelings I have for each of you and had for your extraordinary, warm, kind and inspiring wife and mom. Maxine was such an important person to my parents, and they both loved her. After my mom died, Maxine was also a devoted friend to my dad. That meant so much to him (and to me). I will miss her sweet smile and unforgettable eyes. Harvey, my parents told me I waved my first good-bye to you and Maxine. I am very sad to wave a final good-bye to her now. With fondness forever and deepest sympathy on your loss, Madelyn

Dear Harvey and the entire Sigman Family, The Montreal Jewish Community will not be the same without Maxine.

Eva Kuper - 23 days ago

Dear Sigman Family, My heart aches for this profound loss for your family. Dr. Harvey, you have been a part of my life since 2005 and have always been compassionate and skilled - how terrible for you that you stood helplessly while your beloved wife succumbed to this terrible disease. Karen, with whom I travelled on last year's MOL, and whom I hugged at the JGH last week as you sat vigil for your mom as I watched my husband a couple of doors away. You are such an amazing family and role model for everyone whose lives you touch. I am so very sorry for this loss and I know that the love you share and the life you shared and the memories you have of your amazing wife, mom, grandmother and all the many other other roles she played in her life, will sustain you as you make your way forward.

Dale Boidman - 23 days ago

Dear Harvey, Karen, Terry and Eric, and families, From the time I was 10 yrs old, I heard from my mother (Pearl Feintuch) stories about her “star student” at the Shaar LTF group. She was intelligent and beautiful, charming, kind, and full of life. Little did I know how right my mother would be. Maxine was all that and more. She shined in every arena that she chose to enter. Maxine was a role model for so many community leaders, as she embraced the multi-challenges of success as matriarch, community leadership and outstanding professional psychologist. Our community has lost one of its best and brightest. Fortunately for us, her legacy lives in in her children. Nat and I extend our sincere sympathies to all of you. Dale

Brahm Gelfand - 24 days ago

Dear Harvey and family My memory does not extend to a period when I did not know Maxine (early childhood prior to the Shaar excluded). Losing her is to me like losing a member of a small club, of old and dear friends even though we did nor run in to each other,frequently and then when we did in the corridors of the JGH it was such a pleasure to stop and schmooze about family and daily life. I have read with tears in my eyes the wonderful notes in which others have expressed their thoughts on Maxine,I cannot replicate them but can only say how so many of us had such admiration and respect for Maxine, what she has accomplished and her warm and passionate love of life and people. Harvey,I shall miss our chance encounters at the JGH,but many more will miss her contributions to friendship ,compassion and thoughtfulness. May your many memories soften in time ,this sad loss of a beloved partner. With heartfelt condolences to you and your family Brahm

C'est avec une grande tristesse que j'ai appris cette malheureuse nouvelle . Je tiens à offrir à toute la Famille Sigman, mes sincères condoléances. Que de doux souvenirs me viennent à la tête lorsque je pense à cette Femme qui était si élégante . Maxine était souriante et sympathique envers nous, sa bonne humeur était contagieuse , en plus elle était soucieuse de notre bonheur. Cette Grande Dame dont la gentillesse s'exprimait par des marques de petites attentions à notre l'égard. J'ai appris à travers ses petits gestes que l'amour d'autrui était pour elle, une façon d'embellir notre monde. Repose en Paix ma Belle Maxine, tu es un belle exemple de ce qui est le dévouement envers tes congénères. Veille sur nous tous car ton esprit restera à tout jamais près de nous. Tu me manques déjà ma Belle Maxine. Josée Fisette xx
