BERNSTEIN--Vicki, Lifelong New Yorker, brilliant Scrabble player, creator of dessert sensation "Raspberry Vicki," adoring fan of Roger Federer, adored matriarch of our family, and of so many who met her, passed away on January 3, 2013. Devoted wife of the love of her life, the late Robert Bernstein, for 43 years; fiercely loyal and loving mother of Jed, Doug, and Tracy; unabashedly proud grandmother of Tim, Henry, Nick, and Rachel; generous mother-in-law to Ellen and Eric; cuddly keeper of Anna and Jasmine; friend and advisor to several generations; we will remember, honor, and love her for teaching us the importance of family. "Don't fight, be nice to each other." In lieu of flowers, donations in her honor may be made to the ASPCA.
