Jody Flynn

Lenny will be missed by so many. She was one of the sweetest people I have had the honor of knowing and being related to. My condolences to the Zeiger Family.

Trudy Rappaport Sirkis

To Dr. Zeiger, Ilene, Shelly and Eva: Sending love and hugs to all of you. I am so sorry about her passing. Mrs. Zeiger was so special and sweet and such an important part of my life growing up. (I know, I know, I'm supposed to use first names, but old habits are hard to let go). I know her memory will be for a blessing. Thinking of you all. Love, Trudy

Rabbi Shalom Podwol

It is difficult to grasp that the radiant presence of our beloved Lennie will no longer be among us. But she will surely be in our hearts forever. Lennie was so personable, kind and caring. She was generous in every way. Dalia and I will miss her very much. May the memory of Lennie Zeiger be an eternal blessing.

Mindy Grall Marton

Amanda, Emily, and Allie Monto

A lovely and gracious lady who will be greatly misses.

Debra Abraham

Beautiful service, there is no doubt Lenny will be missed by many. So true how so many of us thought of her like own mother. Out families have shared so many great memories, she will be missed but her brownie recipe will live on :-) Love and hugs to you all xo

Barbara Laing

Lennie was like a second mother to me. She and Bert welcomed me immediately into their family when Ilene first introduced us. They were both full of acceptance and welcoming generosity, which meant so much to me as a single person away from my own family. Lennie offered abundant love, copious amounts of food and invitations were always forthcoming. On the occasions that I sent something onto them for a holiday or other remembrance, Lennie would always call me on the phone to thank me and I'll never forget her voice reaching through the line with her loving appreciation.
I so admired her fierce commitment to truth telling, being a decent person in the world, and her love of books and culture.
I'm devastated by her passing, heartbroken for all of you, her devoted and loving family. I hold you in my heart and thoughts.

Suanne Chiacchiaro

Although many miles separate New York and Chicago, and we didn't see each other often, Lenny's warmth and personality made the distance and the time between visits disappear when we spoke! It was always such a special time when the Zeigers came to New York! She was a very special lady. My heart goes out to you.

Alan Drucker

My condolences to Burt, Sheldon, Ilene, Eva, and the rest of the Zeiger Family. She was such a kind and loving woman.

Lisa Korol

I am sending my love and deepest condolences to Uncle Burt, Ilene, Shelly, Eva and your beautiful families. Aunt Lenny's love for Uncle Burt and her kids and grandkids was evident in everything she did. Her superpower was how she made you feel... welcome, cared for, and loved. Watching such a beautiful marriage thru the years was truly inspiring. If there ever were two perfect soulmates, it was Lenny and Burt. She was happy and generous and loving and funny and smart and so much more. Most of all, Lenny was the kindest woman that I have ever known. She was a blessing in her life to her family and her friends. Listening to all of the grandchildren speak about their Bubbe last night made me know that her memory will always be for a blessing in your family. I love you all!

Richard and Caryn Green

Burt, Ilene, Shelly, Eva and all of the Zeiger family,
Our deepest condolences for all of you. Lenny was one of the few people who we had ever met who was truly all-good. She never had a bad thing to say about anyone. She was like a second mother to me growing up, and she will be missed by all. Love, Rich and Caryn

Robert Noven
