To the Edelman family:
My mother, Irene Winterberg, was Ruth Edelman's social secretary for many years. She always told me what a pleasure it was to work with Ruth, how smart she was, how committed, and how dedicated to the causes in which she believed. I had the pleasure of meeting Ruth a few times, and she was totally charming! Her death is a real loss to the Chicago community in so many ways - particularly to the many charities she supported. I just wanted to add my own note of sympathy to the many, many others you have surely received. Ruth was (my mother's highest compliment) a lady in every sense of the word!

I had the pleasure of working with Ruth during the 1970's. She was a great asset to the Edelman firm and a lovely person.

"Mrs Edelman" as we knew her growing up in Chicago was an elegant engaging woman. My first memories are from kindergarden! As I reacquainted with her as an adult friend of the family, her kind, gracious and witty exchanges with my (foreign) wife and her love of her family reinforced my childhood memories of a wonderful beautiful women full of life. She had good innings as the British say, and has left behind an enviable legacy in both family and deeds. She will be missed but is happily reunited with Daniel - the love of her life.

I wish to extend my condolences to the Edelman family. May the God of tender mercies and of all comfort be with you during this time of grief and sorrow.
