Tishelle Hirshberg Glant Scheinman,
94, died Monday, April 28, 2014 at her home at Aljoya, 2430 76th Ave. S.E., Mercer Island.
She was born on June 17, 1919 in San Francisco and lived much of her early life in Choteau, Montana where her father was a businessman and banker. Throughout her life she expressed great affection for Choteau and all things Montana.
She graduated from high school at the Annie Wright Seminary in Tacoma and attended the University of Washington, where she was a member of Alpha Epsilon Phi sorority.
She met her first husband, Elkan C. Offer, at the University. Their marriage ended in divorce.
She later married Merton Y. Glant of Seattle and moved with him to Army bases in Alabama and New York when he was called to active duty at the time of the Vietnam War. She moved to Los Angeles and then back to Seattle after his death.
She married the late Dr. Louis Scheinman of Seattle in 1987.
Tish loved animals - especially dogs - and enjoyed telling stories of dogs she had owned since childhood. In her later years when she could not have a dog of her own she went out of her way to meet and greet dogs owned by friends or friendly strangers. She was never without dog biscuits in her purse.
She is survived by four children: David B. Offer of Augusta, Maine and his wife Susan; Stuart J. Offer of Oakland, California and his wife Judith; Tishelle "Shelley" Cole and her husband Michael Cole of Sherman Oaks, California; and Robert Glant of Springfield, Ore.
She also leaves four grandchildren: Rebecca Offer Bisconer of Napa, California and her husband Benjamin Bisconer; Kate Offer of San Francisco and her husband Seth Arnopole; Nicholas Glant and Lillian Glant of Eugene, Oregon.
She took great joy in her great-grandson, Samuel Bisconer.
