Peacefully, surrounded by family, Sarah Golumbia passed away on Thursday, July 19th, 2018 at 99 years of age.
She was predeceased by her parents, Alice and Israel Kasloff, her beloved husband David and her brother Zachary Kasloff (Josephine). She is survived by her sister Shirley Garfinkel (Irvin) and many devoted nieces and nephews. She has left a great void in the lives of her loving and devoted family; daughters Reesa Niznick (Gerald), Elaine Golumbia and her son Sheldon Golumbia. She will be greatly missed by her grandchildren; Lisa Leonard, Amy Konheim (Jon), Jennifer Stitz and Hart Stitz, and by her great grandchildren; Dana, Emily and Andrew Leonard, Ashley, Haley and Carly Konheim.
Sarah was born April 18th, 1919 in Winnipeg and was raised in a very warm and closely knit family. She married David in 1942 and they enjoyed a wonderful married life until his passing in 1995. Their legacy to our family is a treasured gift to us that will be passed on to our families for generations.
Our mom was a positive thinker, appreciating all aspects of her life. She loved and cherished her family and friends. By her zest for life, devotion to family and sense of humor, she was a role model and an inspiration to us. Although heartbroken, we are filled with love and appreciation for the many years of beautiful memories she created for us.
A special thank you to Trinidad Solano for her kindness, care and compassion provided to our mother over the past 9 years.
