29 January 1938 – 7 March 2014 I am writing my obituary as I prepare to pass over due to cancer. (Carole passed away on March 7, 2014, surrounded by loving and caring friends). I have had a good life. I am eternally grateful for the love of my family and friends, as well as the many dogs and cats who have blessed my life. I was born Jan. 29, 1938, in Jersey City, N.J. to Sidney and Edna Silon, who are both deceased, as is my brother Harry. I leave behind my much loved sisters, Judy Hersh- berg and her husband, David, and Glenda McKertich and her husband, Walter. I am also survived by my nieces, Abbe, Karen, Nancy, Susan, and Lisa, and nephews, Ed and Bob and their spouses and children. I grew up in New Jersey and lived in New York City, where off-off Broadway theatre was my passion. Having graduated from the University of Denver with a B.A., and NYU with a master's degree in speech pathology, I worked with special needs children as both a teacher and speech pathologist. In 1976 I moved to New Mexico and worked in the Santa Fe public school system. After 15 years as a speech pathologist I started my own business as an elder caretaker. Moving to Las Vegas in 2005, I found the Peace & Justice Center, and soon became an activist. As co-director with Pat Leahan, who became a very dear friend, I worked in community advocacy, which was to be my passion for the rest of my life. I also joined the Nat Gold Players, a local theatre company, and became known as "Mayor Nanita" in the annual play, "Over the Edge." It was a joy for me to inhabit the character of the mayor - we had the same quirky sense of humor, and we both loved to make people laugh. I have had many loving animals throughout my life, and I expect to see them all again one day. I'm off now to my next adventure on another plane of existence. I'll probably be back when the time is right. I will see you all again someday. In the meantime, there will be a Memorial Celebration from noon to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 19 at the El Fidel Restaurant, 510 Douglas Ave, Las Vegas. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Las Vegas Peace & Justice Center, PO Box 3454, Las Vegas, N.M. 87701. "Develop the heart. Be compassionate. Not just to your friends but to everyone, be compassionate. Work for peace in your heart and in the world. Work for Peace." – His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama Read Obituary
