Paul Nemetz Obituary
Nemetz, Paul S., MD

Brighton: Saturday, March 15, 2014, peacefully in his bed at the Jewish Home of Rochester, surrounded by family. He was 78 years old and had been in poor health in recent years. Paul was predeceased by his parents, Harry and Esther Waldman Nemetz. He is survived by his beloved and devoted wife Janet DeMayo Nemetz; his four loving children Sarah Nemetz, M.D. (Michel Berg, M.D.), Avram Nemetz, M.D. (Linda Kane), Miriam Nemetz (Lee Greenfield), and Jacob Nemetz; and his six grandchildren Benjamin Berg, Matthew Berg, Jonah Nemetz, Isaac Nemetz, Emma Greenfield, and Joseph Greenfield.

Paul was a psychiatrist by training but had passions that ranged from Russian history, to classical music, to photography, to the education of his children, to competitive marksmanship with high-powered rifles, for which he manufactured his own ammunition.

Born in New York City, he grew up in Ridgewood, at the border of Brooklyn and Queens. He graduated from Harvard University in 1957 with a BA in Anthropology. Paul married Janet DeMayo of Kew Gardens, Queens, in 1957. He received his M.D. degree from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx in its third graduating class of 1961 and completed his residency training in psychiatry there. His professional life brought him and Janet to adventures in many different cities ranging from New York to Fargo, North Dakota, to Philadelphia, and finally Rochester. He was a popular teacher and a devoted clinician. He was a loving and supportive father, and his family will dearly miss him. Janet was the love of his life and remained his rock-solid center for over 56 remarkable years.

The family would like to express its gratitude to the Jewish Home of Rochester, especially the staff of 6NE and 4NE and Dr. Bernard Shore, who took exceptional care of Paul for 10 years.

Dr. Nemetz's Funeral Service will be MONDAY, 11 AM at Temple Sinai (363 Penfield Road). Interment, Mt. Hope Cemetery. The family will be receiving on MONDAY from 7-9 PM, TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY from 2-4 & 7-9 PM at 104 Ashley Drive, 14620. Contributions may be directed to Temple Sinai or the Jewish Senior Life Foundation. For directions, or to leave a message of condolence, please visit:
