Bess was born on July 11, 1928 in Ćmielów, Poland. For 64 years, she was a devoted wife to her b’shert Chaim. Having survived the Holocaust, Bess and Chaim came to Canada in 1948, where they dedicated themselves to building meaningful lives. Our beloved matriarch passes on a great legacy of love of family, strength, and tradition; values which will live on in her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
