Helene J. Margolskee Obituary
Helene J. (Friedman) Margolskee, age 92, of Lexington, on Tuesday, March 1, 2016. Beloved wife of the late Justin M. Margolskee. Devoted mother of Dr. Jeanne Margolskee, Cynthia Demir & her husband Dr. Oktay J. Demir, Dr. Robert Margolskee & his wife Dr. Dorothy Margolskee, and Penny Margolskee. Loving grandmother of Daniel and Dr. Beth Margolskee, Julia Demir Grabianowski and Paul Grabianowski, Dr. Alison Margolskee, Melissa and Jared Levin, and Andrew Margolskee. Devoted great-grandmother of Justin S. Margolskee. Dear sister of the late Bernice Staller and the late Donald Friedman and fond sister-in-law of the late Lillian Skolnick. Helenes passions in life were her family, her art and politics. She studied at the New England School of Art and worked in many different media. She exhibited both nationally and internationally, and was particularly drawn to figurative work interpreting the emotion of everyday life. Although Helene was best known for her series of etchings portraying the world of 19th Century European Jews, she also worked with experimental techniques and contemporary subjects. She regarded her art works as members of her family, and her children and late husband cherished them as well. Services at Temple Isaiah, 55 Lincoln St., Lexington on Friday, March 4 at 11:00AM. Interment at the Westview Cemetery, 520 Bedford St., Lexington. Following the interment, memorial observance will be at the late residence through Friday evening. In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made in support of the Bachelor of Science and Arts Program, Carnegie Mellon University, Office of Annual Giving, 6 PPG Place, 11th floor, Pittsburgh, PA 15222.
