Marian S. Garfinkel (1932-2020)
My mother Marian S. Garfinkel died on August 28th, 2020.
Due to the pandemic, we were only able to have a small graveside service. That ceremony took place at 11:00am on August 30th, 2020, at the Roosevelt Memorial Park. It was performed by Rabbi Jeff Schnitzer.
I have set up a FlipGrid website has been set up where people can post 2-minute videos. The website can use the camera built in to your phone or laptop if you allow it. It works best with Google Chrome.
I am planning to have a memorial service for the unveiling of my mother's head stone on August 29th, 2021. This will be a time for many of my mother's friends to get together and properly note her passing. The service will provide my mother's friends a chance to make statements about my mother's life and work. My mother's favorite foods and deserts will be provided.
Stories of my mother
I am collecting stories of my mother that I plan to publish in a memoir called (her title), "The Kosher Butcher's Daughter." If you have any such stories, please feel free to email them to me.
I have scanned my mother's dissertation. You can access it here: http://simson.net/ref/1992/MGarfinkel_1992.pdf
