Linda Rose Wolfson-Steinberg, 69
Beloved wife of Joseph Steinberg. Loving mother of Shayna (Larry) Garfield, Aliza (Elazar) Weiner, Zev (Sapir) Steinberg and step-mother of Tamar Steinberg. Proud savta of Lotem, Benzi, Carmi and Yoni. Dear sister of Nancy (Avraham) Levenglick, Harry Michael Wolfson.

Linda was a wonderful teacher, a caring mother, a proud Jew, a beautiful artist, and a loving wife. She taught early childhood and then college for a total of 15 years. She always supported her children and helped them when she could. She never stopped learning and listening to various shiuriem, she always had some Torah to share. Her creativity knew no bounds and she continued painting for many years, and sculpting for a bit there too. And she put her best friend, her husband at the forefront of her decision making in her adult life. This could be seen when she picked him up at a C.A.J.E. Conference, when a year later when they married, when she moved with him to a land without skyscrapers (Milwaukee), when she emotionally supported him through their adult lives, and so much more. She was loved, especially her positive attitude and smile, and she will be missed. Zichrona Liveracha.

Long before we were blessed to have Linda as our machatenesta, I remember her well as a teacher at the JCC preschool and at the pottery business. She greeted everyone with her warm smile and positive outlook. The world has lost a ray of light. May her memory be a blessing.
