To all Gimbel's and Winner's

How lucky you were to have Sylvia with you for so long. She saw all of her children grow, become educated, and I'm sure she was thrilled to see you all happy in life and very successful! As a family you showed such love and caring for your MOM. I loved hearing how much Sylvia loved your visits to Baltimore....especially when all gathered at the Club for Sylvia's beautiful 100th birthday celebration. I believe the day ended with Sylvia doing the LAST DANCE. She was just wonderful, happy, and so bright until the end. You are a very lucky family.

Dear Sylvia's family,
It is wth great Sadness to hear of the loss of your dear mother.
I met her at chizuk amuno's minyan when her late husband passsed and she was such a special woman.
She was beautiful inside as well as outside with a neshama that warmed everyone 's heart. She also came to our tehillim group at ahuva aurbrect house with her aide last year and brought with her her elegance and warmth . She was such an inspiration to everyone who met her there and was in awe of her age and agility.
May her soul( neshama) be lifted and your family find comfort among those around you
