Frances Katz

Katz, Frances Frida
July 11, 1925 - December 27, 2012
A longtime resident of Beverly Hills, she was the beloved mother of Steven and Gail Katz, and grandmother of Benjamin & Rebecca Katz and Nora & Jacob Wessel. She was married to her beloved Harry Katz for nearly 50 years until his passing in 1999. Born Friedka Yunger in Sighet, Romania, she survived Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen concentration camps to lead a full and remarkable life in America. Because of the perseverance and fortitude of survivors like her, Jewish life continues. She was a beautiful, warm, loving, giving and very funny woman. She will be greatly missed.
Funeral services were held at Mt. Sinai Memorial Park on December 31, 2012. Donations in her name may be made to the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles.
