Loving mother of Elaine Cooper (Neil) and Susan Drohan, grandmother to Peter, Sarah, Mandy and Matthew (Emily), and great-grandmother to Blake, Ella and Julie. Predeceased by adoring husband Fred Schwarz and partner Harry Klein.
Lea was the sole survivor of her immediate family in the Holocaust and was admired for her strength, resilience, and grit. We will be forever grateful for those qualities which she also passed on to us, along with her love, warmth and support.
A special thank you to the staff at 147 Elder Street for making her last years as pleasant as possible.
