31.05,1934 – 17.04.2021

We would like to thank all our family and friends near and far for their love, support and kindness shown on the passing of our beloved mom, Ida, which was so appreciated.

Coming from an illustrious, community-orientated Cape Town family, Mom continued in her family’s tradition by being active in various Jewish and community organisations. Mom will be particularly remembered for her embodiment of the Jewish value of hachnasat orchim and treating each person with an abiding warmth and interest. Her sense of humour, positivity and joie de vivre buoyed all who knew her.

Mom will be sorely missed by her four loving children, Michelle and Jerry, Bryan and Yael, Rebecca and Danny, Bernard and Marlo, 13 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren, family and friends.



Charles Segal
World-renowned musician, Charles Segal, 92, formerly of Pretoria and Cape Town, passed peacefully in Los Angeles, California on 4 July, surrounded by his loving family.

Charles was a brilliant musician who loved his craft. He composed thousands of beautiful songs, winning the Sarie Award and Guinness World Record.

Charles was also the consummate ‘people person’, with an unforgettable, outgoing yet gentle personality that will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

Charles is survived by his loving wife, Colleen; his devoted daughter, Melanie; his sons, Reeve and his wife, Kaela; Mark and his wife, Bridget; and his daughter, Michelle and her husband, Joseph; his grandson, Benjamin and soon-to-be granddaughter Segal.

Charles Segal now lies at rest amongst other talented stars in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, Hollywood, California. His legacy will live on. MHDSRIP
