Dear Barbara, Bram, and Sherri, I was so sorry to hear that your mother had passed away. I have so many fond memories of her in Prevost, inviting me into your house for something to eat or to ask about my family. She always had a smile on her face and love to share. She was a very special lady who will be dearly missed.

Ian and Felicia - 22 days ago

Dearest Sherri, Bram and Barbara and all of the grandchildren. Our most deepest and our most heartfelt condolences. What can I say about my aunt Pola. She was always so happy and welcoming. So very soft spoken. I remember when I was a kid, living in Cote des Neiges, i would ride my bike into Cote Saint-Luc to say hi. Even just for a quick hello, she would always put out a spread to eat. If you didn’t eat, never mind! You had to eat something before leaving. Aunt Pola was alway fun to be around. May you all keep her memory in your hearts. Rat in peace Aunt Pola.

Paul Yachnin - 22 days ago

Michele Rockmore - 22 days ago

With a heavy heart we say goodbye to our dearest Poly . I consider myself fortunate to have had her as a second grandmother. Growing up, her and my Zaidie Mark never missed a school play, a Friday night dinner, or a Jewish holiday together. Always there to greet you with three kisses, she had so much love to give. Always kind never bitter; how lucky we all were that our zaidie brought her into our lives

Natalie & Stan Bassel - 22 days ago

To the entire family we want to convey our condolences on the passing of your beloved Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Partner and friend. We have so much history with both your Mother and Dad. Pola was the most elegant and beautiful woman. Sam an unbelievable well read man. Keep both their memories alive forever. May your family be spared any further sorrow. Love Natalie & Stan

Heather Shinder-Hirsch - 22 days ago

Sending our deep condolences. I will remember Pola as a second grandmother to us- Allison, Leah, Michele and I. Pola always made us feel loved and cherished. She made our Zaidie Mark so happy- I remember her delicious cooking, made with love, them playing bridge, listening to music, walking, exercising and socializing together. I knew that as a Holocaust survivor, although she had seen and endured darkness and pain, she had triumphed through it with light, love and an open heart. She will be deeply missed and I hope the memories you have together will bring you comfort.
