It is with deep sorrow and sadness to announce the sudden passing of Susan Barbara Taub (January 21, 1955 – December 12, 2022). Recently predeceased by loving husband, Sam Taub, survived by children Shawn (and wife Yaffa), Ari Taub (and wife Sarah), Esther (and husband Elad). Adored and cherished Bubbie to six beautiful grandchildren who live in Israel (Eliana, Bracha, Rinati, Bat-Tzion, Lia, and Itai). Devoted daughter to Molly Rosen, sisters Judy Rochwerg (husband, Lorne), Carole Walters (predeceased by husband, Mark) and brother, Jonathan Rosen.  

She was beloved and surrounded by her community of friends and family both in Toronto and in her new life in Israel where she and Sam made their dream come true by making aliyah 4 years ago. Susan loved life and family.  Sam and Susan had an open door to many and this tragic loss is felt both in Toronto and in Jerusalem.  Susan had endless energy and loved to cook, bake and she showed her love through this every day.  Susan dedicated her working life to the Reena Foundation and helped those around her, within the Jewish community, to support her neighbors and friends. 

A dedicated Bubbie, Susan and her dearly departed husband who passed away just a few weeks ago, Sam, was a constant fixture in their family’s life and her broken heart was with her husband until the unexpected end.
