Anita "Nina" Goldberg Obituary
GOLDBERG, ANITA "NINA," 76, passed away peacefully at home October 25, 2011 after a yearlong valiant battle with cancer.

Born January 20, 1935, in Chicago, IL, she was the daughter of the late Irving and Sarah (Weiser) Schneider. She was a loving wife to Jack Goldberg who she met in Jr. High School at the age of 13. They were married in 1951. She was 16 and he was 17. They had more than 60 amazing years together.

They have five children, Diane (Goldberg) Esrey (the late Thomas Esrey), of Louisville, Howard B. Goldberg (Sylvia), of Louisville, Steven David Goldberg (Lori Jill), of Louisville, Elise (Goldberg) Roberts (Edwin), of Indianapolis, IN, and Wayne Brent Goldberg (Jennifer) of Southlake, TX.

She is survived by her beloved sisters and brothers, Marlene Weisberg (Mick Gannon) of Louisville, Dale Hyman (David) of Louisville, Chuck Schneider (Susan) of Louisville, and Sam Schneider (Martha) of Dothan, AL. Anita's legacy lives on through her 13 grandchildren, Warren Sparks, Ilan Esrey, Melissa (Esrey) Manass, Tom Esrey Jr. (Lois), Corie Hartman (Brian), Erin Reesor (Kerry), Erich Ising (Linda), Sarah Sloan Goldberg, Jax Goldberg, Stephen Roberts, Zach Roberts, Noah Roberts, Alex Roberts, Jordan Irving Goldberg, Jayden Anita Goldberg; 13 great grandchildren; and two great-great-grandchildren.

Nina was an incredible cook and owned and operated two Louisville Restaurants: SAC'S (Sam, Anita, Chuck Schneider) Food Avenue and Schneider's Delicatessen.

She loved to cook, bake and feeding people truly brought her joy.

She loved to travel and to fish - even though the big one always seemed to avoid the camera. You could even twist her arm on occasion and talk her into playing a penny slot - for hours on end.

But at the end of the day, absolutely nothing brought her more joy than spending time with her family, friends and loved ones.

The family would like to thank Helen Bass, a beloved life-long friend to Anita, and Diana Thompson a beloved long-term family friend and caregiver along with all of the caregivers that helped in the final weeks: Deanna Jenkins, Vera Harris, Gilda Talley and Tanisha Bohler.

Services will be held to honor Anita at Herman Meyer and Son, 1338 Ellison Ave., Friday with visitation starting at 11:30 a.m. and funeral service at 1 p.m. with burial to follow in The Temple Cemetery.

Expressions of sympathy may be made out to J. Graham Brown Cancer Research Center, and Kentucky Humane Society.
