It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Una Globerman on January 18, 2021 at Grace Hospital.
Una was born to Sara and Murray Labinsky on March 25, 1934. She attended Laura Secord and Gordon Bell schools and upon graduation attended Success Commercial College where she became a stenographer.
She had several jobs before settling in at North American Life where she worked for 8 ½ years.
She first met Abe when he came to sign her brother up for B’nai B’rith curling. They started going together after her birthday and got engaged at the Glendale Country Club in September and got married on November 12, 1961 at the Herzlia Academy. They enjoyed 59 years of happily married life.
In August 1962 they moved into their house on 18 Coralberry Avenue in Garden City where they resided for the next 50 some odd years.
Una was a voracious reader; some of her favorite authors were Danielle Steel, Mary Taylor Bradford and Sandra Brown. She drove a car, played Maj, Kalooki and belonged to a poker group where we toasted in many New Year’s Eves on t.v. She loved to entertain and we had many Passover seders and social gatherings at our house. She loved music and was a terrific dancer. She loved soap operas and Young and the Restless was her favorite.
During our marriage we raised three terrific kids, Jeff, Rhonda and David. Una loved travelling and some of her favorite destinations were Vegas, Hawaii, Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood Beach, Dominican Republic, Vancouver, San Francisco and Los Angeles. We took many car rides to the U.S. Midwest with the kids and still remember setting out on Saturday mornings.
Dementia took its toll on Una and she had to move into the Simkin Centre in November 2015.
Left to mourn her passing are her children Jeff, Rhonda (Martin) and David (Rochelle), grandchildren Daniel, Sean, Patti, Mark, Shayna, Eric, Rebecca and Adam, her brother Benson (Sharon), sister in law Faye (Harvey) and niece Rochelle (Harvey) Litman as well as many other nieces, nephews and cousins.
She was pre-deceased by her parents Sara and Murray Labinsky and her in-laws Dora and Israel Globerman.
Pallbearers were Eric Globerman, Sheldon Appelle, Michael Charach, Rabbi Boruch Heidingsfeld and Rabbi Y. Charytan.
Interment was held at Shaarey Zedek Cemetery. Due to Covid-19 there was no shiva. Donations can be made to the Alzheimer’s Society or to a charity of your choice.
REST IN PEACE
