Florence Liberman

1922 - 2014 SHEFFIELD Florence Liberman, 92, passed away peacefully on Nov. 8, 2014, at her home in Sheffield, Mass., surrounded by her family. Daughter of Morris and Anna Gershanov (nee Epstein), she was born on July 25, 1922 in Montclair, N.J. and raised in Washington, DC. Florence married Milton Liberman in 1942. Together they made their home in Brooklyn and East Rockaway, N.Y., where they raised their family. Her husband predeceased her in 1975. She then made her home on Long Island with her daughter, Gail Ullman and her family for many years. In 1999 they moved to Sheffield, where they owned and operated The Sheffield Inn for 14 years. Florence worked for the Brooklyn Navy Yard during World War II. She was a volunteer with Meals on Wheels in NY, and was a volunteer tutor at the Literacy Network of South Berkshire. She leaves three daughters, Terri Liberman and her spouse, Helen Caudill, of Northfield, Vt., Gail Ullman of Sheffield, Mass., Andrea Patel and her husband, Daniel Patel, of Sheffield, Mass.; six grandchildren, Noah Ullman and his wife, Cheryl Ullman, of Colebrook, Conn., Adam Ullman and his wife, Stephanie Bowe Ullman, of Menlo Park, Calif., Gabriel Patel of Brooklyn, N.Y., Jesse Patel and his wife, Maya Mascarenhas, of San Francisco, Calif., Monica Thomas of Somerville, Mass., Tobias Patel of Sheffield, Mass.; and six great-grandchildren, Sadie, Caleb, Grant, Vivienne, Anya, and Leela. She also leaves her sister, Irene Lampe, of San Luis Obispo, Calif. and her dear cousin, Felix Silverstone of Canton, Mass. She was predeceased by her brother, Jack Gershanov, of Washington DC. Florence was an avid baker and trying new recipes was one of her passions. Classical music and the daily crossword puzzle were life-long pleasures. She had a genuine interest in people and continued to make meaningful connections with those around her throughout her life. A grand and generous matriarch, she will be deeply missed.
