Carolyn Zena Bronstein

June 14, 1929 - January 16, 2012

Loving mother of Nancy Gisko (Max), sons, John (Melanie), Bill (Anita), Bob (Jill); granddaughters, Jenny, Katy, Sarah, Jessie, Mandy, Nicole, Alisa, Lily; and grandsons, Jake and Ben; and the love of her life for over 58 years, her husband, Jerry. Carol was born to Mac and Mary Falitz in New York in 1929, and moved to California when she was 12 years old. She was born with scoliosis, a physical ailment which could have kept her from experiencing life to the fullest. Never content to be restrained, she learned early that anything could be overcome with a positive attitude. She was a sports fanatic, and became an avid fan of the Brooklyn Dodgers before they came to become the LA Dodgers, as well as the LA Lakers. She learned the essence of both games, and held season tickets for many years. Carol and Jerry traveled extensively, and she held a special place in her heart for Paris, France, which she visited more than 10 times. She also loved theater, and she enjoyed a lively musical as much as a thought-provoking drama. Carol was an expert needle-pointer, and created beautiful pillows, wall hangings and dolls until her hands could no longer hold a needle. But her strongest love was saved for her family and her friends. Her biggest smiles came from large family gatherings, and she took great pride in attending her grandchildren's' dance recitals, soccer, volleyball, softball and baseball games; and she was a trusted and valued friend. Back pain was a constant in her life, and it intensified during her last 10 years. She never complained, and she never looked for sympathy. She lived life as much as she could on her terms. She had great strength, of will and character along with fire, spirit and personality. She had a good life. Funeral services will be held 1:00 p.m. Thursday, January 19th at Hillside Memorial Park (800) 576-1994. Donations in her memory can be made to: Cancer Support Community - Benjamin Center 1990 S.Bundy Drive, #100 Los Angeles, CA 90025 [email protected] Hillside Mortuary
(310) 641-0707
