Lerner, Sara (Goldfarb) Of Lincoln, Massachusetts. She was born in Brooklyn, on March 28, 1919. She was 95 years old at the time of her death, on April 9, 2014. She was the first child of Sam and Lillian Goldfarb. She had three younger brothers and sisters-in-law: Milton (deceased) and his wife Ruth, Daniel and his wife Adrian (deceased), and Norman and his wife Gene. Sara was married to Max Lerner (deceased) and they had two children: Richard, married to Jacqueline, and Robert (deceased). Richard and Jacqueline have three children: Justin, Blair, and Jarrett. Blair is married to Jeremy Ramsey and they have one child, Harper Rose Ramsey, who was 17 months old at the time of Sara's passing. Sara was a brilliant woman who was an accomplished artist, loved reading, took great joy in solving crossword puzzles in ink, and relished the accomplishments of her children, grandchildren, and great grandchild. Sara remained informed, engaged, and witty through the time of her death. She was a devoted friend and supportive and caring daughter, spouse, sister, mother, aunt, cousin, and friend. Despite her considerable medical challenges across the last several years, Sara was tenacious in her insistence on living – and dying – on her own terms. She lived independently in her own apartment through the time of her death. She was loved and will be deeply missed. Services were held at Boulevard Riverside Chapels in Brooklyn, NY on Friday April 11. She was buried next to her husband in Old Montefiore Cemetery, in Springfield Gardens, Queens, NY.
