We encourage you to share your personal
condolences and stories of Margit Kirsche below and
we will share them with the family.

Carren Oler

Grandma Kirsche was a formidable, strong yet gentle woman. She was passionate about her family and Yiddishkeit. Even when she lost her sight she traveled, and directed cooking from recipes she knew by heart. She was a beloved inspiration and will be missed by all! May the family find comfort in good memories.

Lois and Tom Berkson

Your mother was a fine woman. She took pride in her specialties at the Hungarian. But most importantly she took pride in her family.
