Family Announcements



We would like to thank all family and friends in the USA, UK, Israel, Canada, Australia, Pretoria, Johannesburg and Cape Town and Nora’s carers for the outpouring of love, concern and support in these trying times.

Nora, as many of you knew her, passed away peacefully from natural causes on 22 July 2021 having turned 88 years old on 26 June. She fought a number of health issues over the last 24 months like the good trooper that she always was, still thankfully with a clear, contented and joyful mind-set right until the last few days. She still played her World Wide Bridge games on the computer as well as her Facebook searches.

She missed both her late daughter, Stephanie, and her long-time partner, Hans, who had both left such a huge void in her life until the end.

With sincere gratitude to Rabbi Wineberg, Cantor Ivor Joffe and Rabbi Ziegler.

Thank you all from her son, Howard, her brothers Henry, Frank and Selwyn, her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

My beloved partner Sam passed away peacefully on 28 July 2021.
Thank you for so many happy years and memories. You have left an enormous void in my heart and in my soul.

Much love, Ray

Cherished and loving partner to Ray, adored father to Arlene, Jacqui and Ilana, father-in-law, grandfather and brother, passed away peacefully on 28 July 2021. The outpouring of love and support from family and friends was a great comfort during this traumatic time and we thank you all sincerely. A very special thank you to Rabbi Oshek and to Dr Leon Geffen for their constant caring support.

Sam is deeply mourned and forever in our hearts.
