ALEDORT--Ruth, 75, died at Mt. Sinai Hospital on November 2, 2012 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. She was the beloved wife of Dr. Louis Aledort for 53 years, devoted parent to Eric and Nina, and an adoring grandmother to her four grandchildren. She is also survived by her mother Ilse and her brother Stanley. For many years she worked as a speech therapist, and for the last twenty years, she was an active volunteer at the Mt. Sinai Breast Health Center, devoting her time and energy helping others with breast cancer. She will be remembered forever and deeply missed. Memorial service will be on November 18 with details to follow. The family will be home on November 4 and 5 after 2pm. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Mt. Sinai Breast Health Resource Program.
