Welcovitz Welcovitz, Anita ,76, of Boynton Beach, beloved wife of Sam, wonderful and proud mother of Marci Starkman, Judith Taggart, Wendy Welcovitz, and Richard Welcovitz. Adored grandmother of Jordan Pinsky and Stephen Welcovitz. Dear mother-in-law of Richard Taggart, Michele Petroski, and Joyce Welcovitz. Devoted daughter of Maurice and Jean Silverstein (pre-deceased), and sister of Leonard Silverstein and David Silverstein (pre-deceased), and his wife, Ann. Former residents of Philadelphia, Pa., Anita and Sam celebrated their 58th wedding anniversary last July. Anita lived her life to the fullest for as long as she could. A truly giving person and ?people magnet?, she befriended strangers and helped those in need. Anita was an avid ?foodie?, and enjoyed traveling, casinos, bingo, bowling, and mah-jongg. But most of all, she loved her family and friends, and will be deeply missed always. To honor her wishes, there will be no funeral or shiva. A Celebration of her Life will be held in early January 2013 for family and friends. Thank you to all the special caregivers in the last few months. In lieu of flowers or gifts, donations may be made to VITAS Hospice Community Connection - Boynton Beach, FL.
