It is with profound sadness that the family of Corinne Greenberg announces her passing on October 15, 2017 at the age of 89.
Mom was predeceased by her parents Yetta and Ben Mitchell, husband Edward, son Shane, and son-in-law Jim.
She is survived by her daughters, Sandra Gordon and Brenda Tenenbein (Milton), grandchildren Burton, Paul (Rachel), Marshall (Candice), Rachel (Sasha), Sarah, great-grandchildren Jacob, Ethan, Abbygayle, Emilia, Aiden and Zane, her sister Myrna Kreel (Harry), and several nieces and nephews.
Mom was born in Winnipeg on September 10, 1928 and spent her entire life here. In 1947, at the age of 18, she married Edward and they enjoyed 67 wonderful years together prior to Dad passing away in 2014.
Our parents were great dancers and one of our earliest memories is of Mom and Dad turning on the radio and dancing in the kitchen of our house. We have fond memories of Mom playing Kalooki with the ladies and entertaining friends on Saturday evenings.
Mom was happiest when nurturing her children and then later her grandchildren. Her grandchildren were her life. Mom became a grandmother at a young age and our parents spent many joyful hours with their grandchildren, babysitting, and attending kids’ sports games, school concerts and dance recitals.
Mom loved the warm sun and she and Dad spent enjoyable winters in Palm Springs, often visited by a grandchild or two.
Our mother was a dedicated member of Le’Havah chapter of Pioneer Women, attending meetings and involved in fundraising for many years.
Mom was laid to rest beside Dad at the Shaarey Zedek Cemetery on a golden fall day.
Pallbearers were Milton Tenenbein, Burton Tenenbein, Paul Tenenbein, Marshall Tenenbein, Sasha Opotowsky, and Michael Silver. Rabbi Alan Green officiated.
Contributions in Mom’s memory may be made to the Jewish National Fund of Canada.
Mom, we will miss you.
