Hyde, Georgine J. - Pomona  
1925 - 2015 Georgine Hyde, a Rockland County, New York, icon for her dedication to public education for over 40 years, died peacefully at her Pomona, NY, home on August 28, 2015. She was 90-years of age and suffered with Alzheimer's disease. Georgine was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia, and, as a newly wed teenager, endured the horror of Nazi concentration camps where she lost her parents. She returned to post WW-II Prague and later lived in Australia and England before immigrating to the United States in 1952. Pomona became her home in 1957 where she lived until her passing. Passionately committed to make the world a better place as a result of her Holocaust experience, Georgine Hyde dedicated her life to advancing public education for all children by serving as a volunteer public servant on local, state, and federal levels. She won 12 consecutive elections and served 36 years on the East Ramapo School Board during the district's halcyon days when parents, teachers, administrators, and community leaders admired East Ramapo for educational excellence and integrity. Georgine Hyde served as president of the New York State School Boards Association and Rockland BOCES Board of Education. She was co-founder of the Rockland Center for Holocaust Studies and a founding member of the National School Boards Association. Numerous governmental leaders valued her advice on public education issues including New York State Governor Mario Coumo, United States Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, and Congressman Benjamin Gilman. Georgine Hyde received an Honorary Doctor of Humanities from Dominican College, an Honorary Doctor of Humane Letters from St. Thomas Aquinas College, and the New York State School Board Association's Everett R. Dyer Award for Distinguished Service. Georgine Hyde is survived by her loving and dedicated husband of 74-years, Frank Hyde, age 94, also a Holocaust survivor; her son, John Hyde; daughter-in-law, Celina Hyde; granddaughter, Natalie Hyde, and Natalie's mother, Helen Hyde; and cousin, George Feldman. Georgine's extended family of friends and loved ones included Tami Kaplan and her husband Jalal Saad, Elise Oster-Bruck, and Bibi Balkishun, who took care of her night and day for nearly ten years as the Alzheimer's condition worsened. A memorial service open to the public will be held 11:30 AM, Wednesday, September 2, 2015, at Wanamaker & Carlough Funeral Home, 177 Route 59, Suffern, New York.

Son of the late Lewis and Inna Rubin, he was valedictorian of his graduating class at Norton, MA High School.

Mr. Rubin was actively involved with WPI over his entire life, ending his tenure as Chairman of the Board of Trustees the year he was diagnosed with ALS. He was also deeply devoted to Temple Beth Shalom, Needham where he served on the Board, ushered, and participated in Brotherhood activities.
