Our heartfelt sympathy to the many family members of a very special lady. Dee always welcomed us with a warm smile whether it was: as a little girl into her home, at a Bat Mitzvah of one of her beautiful granddaughters, or at her 100th birthday celebration. We have been blessed to know her. Love from, Gail and Lou

Dear Ronnay, Stanley and family: our heartfelt condolences on the loss of your beloved Dee. For many years she and her sister Adele volunteered for Jewish Armed Services, bowling weekly with veterans or visiting with them at the downtown VA. She delighted in bringing joy to them. May her memory be for a blessing.

Dear Ronnay and Fred,
We want to send our deep felt condolences. Your mother
had great energy. She told us about her experiences living
in El Cerrito with your Dad during World War II.
She was always so sweet when we would visit during the holidays.
You are so blessed with having a mother who lived a long and happy life.
She did a great job of parenting.
Her life is an inspiration to us all.
Ruth and Larry Amernick

Quand je vous ai connue, j’avais 12 ans, je venais de traverser l’Atlantique pour la première fois et tout en Amérique me paraissait grandiose !! C’est la première fois que je vous aie vue et depuis ce jour là, à chaque rencontre, vous avez toujours été chaleureuse et souriante avec moi comme votre fils, mon grand « copain » !!!
Je suis très heureuse, de vous avoir connue, d’avoir passé des fêtes en votre compagnie, que vous soyez venue à mon mariage, de vous avoir parlé en octobre dernier...
Je vous embrasse très fort pour votre dernier voyage.

Deborah was a very kind woman with a big heart. She was always calm and stated as obvious humanistic and solidarity principles. She cherished her family, her children and grandchildren and never complained about anything. There are no words to comfort for the loss of a loved one. I think of you Fred and Rebecca and Julia and Arielle mes trésors. My thoughts go with you.

Growing up I remember spending time with Aunt Dee while my sister and I visited her in Baltimore. There were so many summers we spent running up and down the hallways of 130 Slade visiting Aunt Dee and Grandma Adele. I was always happy to be around my Great Aunt Dee. She was intelligent, reserved, and not once do I remember her uttering an unkind word about anyone. She was a very kind and loving woman, and always remembered Julian's name. I will miss talking with her and asking her questions about her life. I hope she's at peace now. Perhaps she's looking out for us and laughing with affection as she sees us in our daily lives; trying to make sense of it all. I will miss her dearly. I love you Aunt Dee!

You were always the epitome of a Grande Dame- quiet, simple, dignified, kind, wise, grateful, beautiful, and loving....You have given Fred and me, and our daughters Julia and Arielle, all that we needed from you, graciously and lovingly, all these years that you have been by our side. For that we have loved you very much, and you will continue to inspire us and be a shining light to us, long into your journey far away. Thank you for the ordinary and extraordinary times we shared, thank you for the love.

Our condolences to Ronnay and the family. Dee was a dear friend of my mother in law, Beverly Levy, and spent a few Passover seders with us a few years ago. She was sweet and kind, and remembered me from elementary school. May your memories bring you comfort. Linda (Levin) and Mark Levy
