HILDA BERKAL (published on March 06, 2010)

HILDA BERKAL Be it known to all on this day that on Tuesday morning March 2, 2010, Hilda Berkal passed away in her home one day shy of her 98th birthday. She succumbed to a short period of ill health after enjoying almost a century with friends and family. She leaves behind, as part of her legacy, children, grandchildren, great- grandchildren, nieces, nephews and many wonderful friends. Her passing brought an end to a generation of her family. Services were held on Thursday, March 4, 2010 and interment was at the Shaarey Zedek Cemetery. The family would like to express its profound gratitude to the Manitoba Home Care Program for the outstanding work of its agency and for its excellent, qualified and dedicated staff including Ruth Shaw and Timmoly Thompson. The family would also like to thank Sue, Ingrid, Vickie, Solly and Lillian who provide private care with warmth and friendship. Anyone interested in honouring the memory of Hilda Berkal can make a contribution to the Abe and Hilda Berkal Scholarship Fund at the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg, the Hebrew University or a charity of your choice. Hilda's beloved husband of 67 years, Abe, left us in January 2000.
