BLUMA STEINFELD (published on March 05, 2011)

BLUMA STEINFELD Peacefully, with her sons by her side, Bluma Steinfeld passed away at the age of 90 years on February 22, 2011 at Seven Oaks General Hospital. She will be remembered and missed by her children, Leo (Maureen), Barry (Mary Jo), and Sam (Karen). She also leaves behind grandchildren, Jonathan (Stav), Jared (Allie), Rosalynn (Moshe), Ben (Maggie), Bryan (Gordana), Eli, Aidan, Carly (Joel) , Dayna and great-grandchildren Oren, Lev, Maya, Danielle, Noa, Ori, Elad, Ella and Annissa. Bluma was predeceased by her husband, Morris, in 1989. Bluma was born in Zdunska-Wola, Poland on December 6, 1920 to Moishe and Brucha Sieradzki, one of 12 children. Her parents and 10 of her brothers and sisters perished in Auschwitz. Shortly after she was liberated, she met and married Morris, also a Holocaust survivor. They and their first-born son, Leo, immigrated to Canada in 1948 and settled in Winnipeg where they began their new life; their family grew with the addition of two more sons, Barry and Sam. Bluma was a gentle, kind and generous woman. She supported various charities including the Red Cross, J.N.F. and Salvation Army. Bluma enjoyed simple things in life: living on her own, taking the bus downtown with a stop at the Paddlewheel for tea and going out with her family for Chinese food. Most of all, she took pleasure from visiting with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. We were blessed to have so many of the family together this past December to celebrate Bluma's 90th birthday. We would like to thank Dr. Orest Prodan and the staff at Riverwood Square for their care of our mother. We thank the staff of Unit 4-1 at Seven Oaks General Hospital and Dr. David Dillon for their kindness. Funeral services were held on Thursday, February 24, 2011 at Etz Chayim Synagogue with burial at Hebrew Sick Benefit Society Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Jewish National Fund, the Canadian Museum of Human Rights or a charity of your choice.
