She was especially proud of a 1st Prize award for an essay she wrote about her first year of teaching. Yetta was very artistic and enjoyed doing ceramics. She was also active in Hadassah. Yetta had a positive outlook on life and will be remembered as a loving, giving person to both family and friends. Kind and caring, she was always thinking about others. She had a well-deserved reputation as an amazing hostess. At the end of the day, the most important thing to her was her family.

I had the pleasure of working with Yetta at Public School No.13 for many years. She had a heart of gold and truly loved the children. I'll always remember the bathtub of winter coats that she collected for the children. Yetta was a loving and caring woman....fond memories. ❤ R.I.P.
