BENJAMIN, BLOSSOM, 90 in age, not a day over 18 in spirit, passed away peacefully on April 15, 2014. Born in Philadelphia, Blossom moved to Miami where she met her late husband, Alan Benjamin. Alan named one of the oldest citrus businesses in Florida after her, Orange Blossom Company. They were married for over 50 years and had 3 children. After Alan's passing Blossom met Gus, who she spent 7 wonderful years. Blossom was famous for her love for life, endless energy and eternal optimism. Traveling was her most treasured pastime, and teaching mahjong filled many of her days. Blossom was the matriarch of a tightly knit clan. Her radiant love light made family gatherings unforgettable, and will continue to shine on in the family and friends who cherished her so dearly. She is survived by her children, Sally, Mark (Jamie) & Jackie (Elisha); grandchildren, Jenny, Adam, Natasha, Alexander, Yoav, Reve, Avi & Ben, and great grandchildren, Mack, Jake, Addison, Alec, Theo & Bina.
