On January 8, 2013, in Arlington, VA. Dear wife for 65 years of Marvin G. Holperin; beloved mother of Constance E. Holperin and Maria Holperin Terrell (William J.); sister-in-law of Joy Holperin; aunt to many Holperin nephews and a niece in Wisconisn. Born in Chicago, she lived for many years in Ripon, WI, and then in the Milwaukee area, where she worked to further the arts, especially music, and was known as a hostess for many fundraising events in her home. An eternal optimist and lover of all things beautiful, she was an avid collector of Chinese export porcelain and a connoisseur of chocolate, roses, movies, and poodles. A private funeral mass will be held. A gathering of family and friends to celebrate her beautiful life will be held in the spring. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations to Seabury Care Management, 4201 Butterworth PL., NW, Washington, DC 20016.
