Family Announcements


Alison Berk Katzeff Z’L

Alison was always a hard-working lady, possessing many skills and talents. A businesswoman managing her family business.

For many years she took on a variety of different communal roles.

She headed many of these organisations, with great diligence and success, applying her extensive knowledge of strategic management.

In fact, at age 50, she undertook and successfully completed her MBA in Philanthropy to further enhance her skill-set.

The many published communal letters of condolence pay well-earned thanks to her, and attest to the acknowledgment of her dedication
to always support the entire community.

She herself was extremely philanthropic.

On a personal note, Alison was the rock of our family and she is sorely missed.

Our children and their families, her sisters and myself sincerely thank the entire South African community for all the condolences, love and support that we received.

Our Claremont Wynberg family especially, who along with so many good lifelong friends and family provided delicious sustenance.

May the memory of Aviva Bat Shmuel Hakohen always be for a blessing.

By her husband Howard Katzeff
