In memory of Ettie Buch z’l

Ettie Buch

24 Nov 1920 – 9 March 2021

Our beloved Ettie Buch, passed away in the early hours of the morning on 9 March 2021.

She was our longest standing active member and incredibly — at 100 years old — still raised funds for BZA WIZO until the very end.

Ettie became involved while she was still at school. There followed 72 years of work for our organisation as Chairman of BZA WIZO’s Strand, Fresnaye and Tikva branches over the years.

Twinkling eyes, a marvellous sense of humour and a sharp wit that never dulled over time, were her trademarks. A true Eishet Chayil, Ettie was an exceptional woman with a huge zest for life, her love for Israel and wholehearted involvement in that calling was complete.

It was such a privilege to know this wonderful woman, who will be sorely missed by us all. We wish her family long life.
