We sadly announce the passing of May Applebaum, just shy of her 98th birthday, loving mother of Gail Yollick and Fern Snyder, mother-in-law of Michael Yollick and Barry Snyder, grandmother of Adam and Maiko Snyder, Jennifer and Vadim Medvedev, Joanna Yollick and Adam Zitney, and Melissa Yollick and Mikey Leibovitz, and great-grandmother of Harrison, Maya, Sean, Katie, Dylan, Cameron, Sterling, Andrew, Ethan, Summer, and Nathan.

May was an accomplished and creative lifetime learner and was as proficient in the kitchen as she was in a debate over religion, music, art, or politics. She valued her family above all else and she was supremely proud  of each and every member and their varied accomplishments; her many volumes of family photos and framed photos adorning her walls were a testament to that.
