NEWMAN, Aleen, C.
The children of Aleen C. Newman mourn the passing of their beloved mother and grandmother on March 21, 2012. Mrs. Newman was the wife of the late Elmer S. Newman, the mother of Bobbe Newman of Woodland Hills, Calif., and Patty and Lester Krupp of San Mateo, Calif., and the grandmother of Adam N. Burton of Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and Jonathon A. Krupp of San Mateo, Calif. She is also survived by her sister, June Citron of Boca Raton, Fla.
Mrs. Newman was surrounded by her family and devoted caregiver, Mila, when she passed away in her home in Woodland Hills following a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease. She was nine days short of her 94th birthday.
Born March 30, 1918, and a lifetime resident of Cincinnati, Mrs. Newman attended Avondale School, Hughes High School and the University of Cincinnati where she met, and in 1939, married her husband of 67 years, Elmer.
Mrs. Newman was well known for her fun-loving spirit, her kindness and generosity, having devoted more than 25,000 volunteer hours as a buyer for the Jewish Hospital Gift Shop. She was a long-standing member of Rockdale Temple.
Everyone who knew Mrs. Newman will be deeply affected by the loss. She was a wonderful friend, an expert listener, a stellar hostess and a much loved mother and grandmother.
The family requests that any contributions be donated to the “Cure Alzheimer’s Fund,” 34 Washington St. Ste. 200, Wellesley, MA 02481; (781) 237-3800.
