Dear Harvey, Mel, Bernie, Avrum and family, It's with great sadness that we learned of your mom's passing. She was really such a special person. We were such close friends with Jack and Sylvia for most of a lifetime and had so many wonderful times together. (Sam still talks about his wonderful childhood friend, Jake.) Our hearts go out to you -- wishing you much love and strength. Pearl and Sam

Dear Harvey,Mel, Bernie and Avrum and family: my deepest sympathies on the passing of your mother, mother-in-law and grandmother. Your parents were great neighbours and friends and were an integral part of such a wonderful community in which we were privileged to grow up. I remember being at a pre-seder at your parents` home- your mom organized it because all of you happened to be home together at this time! What a treat! You have great memories and may they be a legacy to you all. May your mother`s name be forever a blessing.

Melvin and Sandy Brown - 27 days ago

Dear Soicher Family, From 1963-1965, Sandy and I lived in Montreal while we were immersed in our graduate studies. While there, Sylvia and Jack were so very kind to us, inviting us to Yom Tov meals and arranging Synagogue tickets for the High Holidays, kindnesses we have never forgotten. Sylvia took her profession very seriously. I still remember that every time we entered their home on Houde Street, Sylvia would say to me, "Melvin, stand up straight". We send our deepest sympathies to the four Soicher boys, to Miriam Crystal and the entire Soicher family. May Sylvia"s memory be for a blessing. Fondly, Melvin and Sandy Brown

Asya and Fima - 27 days ago

this is to remember Sylvia, our dear Sylvia.... she, Aunt Riva and Jack made my life in Montreal one big wonderful fairy tail. At the house at Houde str I always felt at home, from the first day upon our arrival to Montreal, unforgettable, unreal, and yet so real, so homey, so warm, so familiar. Every time and all the time, Sylvia and Jack supported me in all my doings. I used to spend weeks at their house while at Vanier, they always took part in my life, they knew my friends, they went to my pIays, they fixed my bike, they gave me all the space I needed to learn, even if it meant I needed the whole dinner table and spread all my books there, they met Fima and accepted him, they made him feel at home, they, my parents and Aunt Riva did everything for me to have four wedding parties!!!!!, I never had to call and ask, just came, just like that - and there was always Jack's soup, Sylvia's famous zuccini muffins -the dishes, the cutlery, the cluttered kitchen table - the smell of home, the feeling of absolute inner comfort, the sometimes unspoken love, this is how it felt back then, and now, 24 years later all these feelings are all very much alive in my soul, now mixes with great sorrow, and still bigger gratitude. Dear Harvey, dear Mel, dear Bernie, dear Avrum, all the dear family - my dear Sylvia - so easy going, so uncomplicated, so loving, soothing, so will always live in my heart, in Fima's heart, the emotions do not die, Sylvia I love you very much!!! hope you meet Jack there, I know how much you missed him.

Felicia Shulman - 28 days ago

Dear Soicher family; I have strong memories growing up of Mrs. Soicher, as I would call her- Through elementary school years, high school and beyond. She always stayed after performances to chat and I so appreciated her commentary. She was filled with light, wisdom, no nonsense reality and humour that never seemed to dim over the years. I often have thought about her this last while, since theatres been dark. Sad to hear of her passing. I do believe her Light will keep shining upon those she loved who loved her. My deep condolences to you all. xofelish

Michael Fish - 28 days ago

To Harvey, Mel, Bernie and my dearest Avrum, My address may have been 140 Houde St, but from a practical point of view it may well have been 130. Your mother always made me feel welcome in your home and I had always had a sense that I was an honourary Soicher. Sylvia’s unflappable patience, even when Jack was in the backyard saying goodbye to the trees moments before heading up north, are forever etched in my mind. Your home, filled with love of sport, love of family and overall love for anyone who crossed the threshold is vividly etched into my mind and my heart. Sylvia gave me much, including Avrum, and for that I will be eternally grateful to her. May her memory always be for a blessing. Michael

Ron Huberman - 28 days ago

130 Houde was a second home for me growing up in Eastern St. Laurent. Many fond memories hanging with Bernie as well as Harvey, Mel and Avrum. Sylvia and Jack’s home was open to all and there was always something interesting going on. Sylvia herself was warm, welcoming and always interested in what was important to us. Sincere sympathies to the entire family … Adeena & Ron.

Eva Kuper - 29 days ago

I knew Sylvia slightly through the hiking and cross-country ski group at Cummings Centre in Montreal. IShe was an avid enthusiast of exercise and nature well into her senior years. I'll never forget her answer when I asked her, (I think she in her early 80's at the time), "how do you manage to do all this and keep up?". Her answer was, and remains my inspiration. She said two words - "Never stop!". My deep condolences to Sylvia's family. Rest in peace Sylvia.
