Desenberg, Zita  
Desenberg, Zita Nov. 22, 1932 - May 20, 2015 Zita Desenberg of Sarasota, FL, died on May 20, 2015. Zita Ann Desenberg was born in New York City on November 22, 1932, to Gertrude (Levins) and Irving Spector. She attended Adelphi Academy, graduated from the University of North Carolina, and went on to earn 2 Masters Degrees from Teachers College, Columbia University. She taught school for a couple of years and then turned her attention to raising a family. Zita eschewed most of the humdrum distaff tasks, preferring to outsource and supervise. This provided her temporal wherewithal to produce great volumes of witty song lyrics about the lives of those around her, throw numberless fabulous parties, and use Photoshop to reshape the world as she thought it should be. She used her creative sparkle to bring people together, celebrate their unique qualities in song, and build community through laughter. Zita is survived by her children: Diane Desenberg (husband Tom Mawn, children TM Mawn & Calliope Desenberg); Trey Desenberg (children Keith & Daniel); and Lisa Desenberg; daughter-in-law Hilda Desenberg; brother Joel Spector (wife Gail); brother-in-law Charles Desenberg (wife Marilyn); sister-in-law Babette Wolff; friends and family too numerous to list; and Sadie, the best dog in the world. Zita was pre-deceased by the love of her life for 54 years, Milford Desenberg. Zita was an avid reader, tennis player, Life Master bridge player, and lover of culture. Zita lived by the motto, 'Give to every charity that asks.' If you didn't get a donation, you have only yourself to blame. Although there are many who exalt gourmet food, artistically presented and organically grown; Zita was not among them. Zita always attained high marks in the fashion department. No opportunity to shine was missed; whether at her exercise class, at a swank gala, or while sitting in a hospital bed, she stood out from the crowd. Despite her tendency toward seasickness, Zita sailed with Milford more than halfway around the world from Sarasota to Tahiti, never without her best friend, the scopolamine patch, behind her ear. Zita's acclaimed Photoshop skills were in demand and mightier than a plastic surgeon's hand; for her friends, she would erase the passage of time, removing wrinkles without pain. Zita's kindness, creativity, generosity, and wit enriched the lives of her family, friends, and those who knew her. Friends can visit Zita's family during shiva at her home on Sunday, May 24th, from 2 until 5 PM. A celebration of Zita's life may be in the works. If you would like to make a donation in Zita's memory, please consider Southwest Florida Easter Seals, Tidewell Hospice, or Jewish Family & Children's Service of the Suncoast.

Greenfield, Louise S.  
Greenfield, Louise S. Apr. 16, 1917 - May 19, 2015 Louise Stern Greenfield died peacefully at home on May 19, 2015. Born in Philadelphia, she was the daughter of Berdie and Milton Stern, a successful real estate investor. Louise studied the flute under world famous William Kincaid, the first flutist with the Philadelphia Orchestra. While still in her teens, she began giving flute and piano lessons to children. At the age of 50, Louise added the cello to her instrumental repertoire. She volunteered at the Byberry Psychiatric Hospital in Philadelphia, where she took the initiative to create an orchestra made up of psychiatric patients. A true renaissance woman...she was a musician, athlete and wordsmith. She became a proficient tennis player in her youth and continued playing until weeks before her death at the age of 98. She played on the Landings Racquet Club team and served as captain of the A team. Louise published several books of poetry. She was an outstanding Scrabble and Upwards player regularly beating her friends, children and grandchildren. She played until the end of her life. She was preceded in death by her husband of 75 years, Robert K. Greenfield, a Philadelphia lawyer and civic leader. Together they were involved in community and philanthropic activity including the establishment of the Greenfield prize through the Hermitage of Sarasota. The prize is awarded annually to an artist whose work has social impact. She served on the board of the Sarasota Orchestra. Louise will live on in the memory of her four children, Linda Baldwin of Philadelphia, Mary Davenport of Sarasota, William Greenfield of Philadelphia and James Greenfield of Oregon as well as her son-in-law, Sanford Goldman, and daughters-in-law, Joan Greenfield and Rose Greenfield. She will remain in the hearts and minds of her beloved 'baby' sister Susan Rosenberg of Israel, her 14 grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren, Heather Eslien, who was her devoted companion for the last two years and her little dog, Aria. Louise has been described as an 'inspiration' by her friends and most people who knew her. 'Do you double fault in life?'...an original Louise quip. There will be a 'celebration of life' party for friends and family on Saturday, June 6 from 4-7. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to the Sarasota Orchestra in her name.
