MELNITZER, Fanny (Frances) (nee WEISSGLAS) - Holocaust Survivor Peacefully on Thursday, April 28, 2022, her ninety-nineth birthday and Yom Hashoah.
Beloved wife of the late Sasha Melnitzer and mother of Julius (Janet), Rudy (Denise) and her late daughter, Roslyn. Devoted grandmother to Melissa, Bodhi, Dustin, Karys and Sierra, and great-grandmother to Tashy and Jamea.
Fanny survived the Holocaust along with her late sister, Nusia.
Despite the loss of most of her family, including her parents, Herman and Rosa, and brother, Heshie, she came to Canada with Sasha to start a new life with their young children.
They were deeply involved in the Jewish community in Montreal, including Fanny's work as president of the Women's Auxiliary at Maimonides Geriatric Centre.
Deepest gratitude to Dr. Marcus Law, Nurse Jenny and all the loving staff at Kensington Gardens who did everything possible to make Fanny's last years comfortable.
