So, chosen at random from the NY Times paid death notices, I'd like to take a moment to honor a person I've never met and now never will. One whose character and talents I can't speak to, but who seemed to have...a very large family.
Hannah CitronCITRON--Hannah Bien, of Pembroke Pines, FL expired comfortably of natural causes September 11th. Born December 22, 1915 in Williamsburg, NY, she had resided in Maplewood and South Orange, NJ, and Davie, FL. Hannah's survived by sons Michael and Jonathan, and daughters Laura Gelber and Wendy Binioris, 11 grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. She is predeceased by husband, Seymour, and sons, Robert and Kenneth. Hannah was deeply loved and will be greatly missed.Imagine having lived so long and winding up the matriarch of such a large family. It seems an incredible feat--one as worthy of remembrance as the fantastic dance scene from 'Dirty Dancing.' Which was, undeniably, incredible as well.
