Rita LERNER Obituary

Rita Lerner, age 87, of Palm Beach Gardens, FL, passed away on May 27, 2014, surrounded by her loving family. A native of Brooklyn, NY, she married the love of her life, my dad Eugene, in November, 1957. They came to Florida immediately after honeymooning in Bermuda, transferred to Florida by Pratt & Whitney. Mom adored her life as a wife and mother, but was widowed after only nine years of marriage. She threw herself into the role of Mom and breadwinner, working at Palm Beach Gardens High School for many years. She was able to raise and educate her family and was able to see her adored grandchildren, Meredith and Reed, grow into wonderful adults. She was a 50 plus year congregant of Temple Israel, West Palm Beach. Mom is survived by her loving son, Dr. Andrew Lerner, his wife Dianne, and her beloved grandchildren. Also survived by her other son Gordon and his family. Mom's life was celebrated privately by family and close friends. Donations in her memory may be made to Temple Israel, West Palm Beach or to Hospice of Palm Beach County.
