Florence Newstadt "Flo" Goldstein Obituary
Florence "Flo" Newstadt Goldstein

Age 97, of Wilmington, DE, passed away Saturday, March 18, 2017 at The Kutz Home surrounded by her loving family.

Flo was born in Wilmington on May 29, 1919 to Miriam and Louis Newstadt. She attended Wilmington High School and worked for the old "Giant Tiger" on King Street. In March 1943, she joined the Women's Army Corps. Flo was extremely proud of her service to her country as a WAC in the 3rd Air Force, United States Army. While stationed at Hunter Field, Savannah, GA, she met Bill Goldstein, a handsome corporal from Pittsburgh. They were married on the base on August 2, 1944. After the war, they moved with their daughter, Iris, to Bill's hometown, but soon returned to Wilmington so Flo could be near her parents. She worked for Sears, Roebuck & Co. in their catalogue department, for Mt. Pleasant School District and Wilmington University.

Flo will be remembered as a feisty, vivacious, strong-willed woman who stood her ground when it came to what she believed was right. She was loved for her spirit and her famous sweet and sour meatballs. She loved her family very much, and was especially proud of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Flo and Bill enjoyed almost 65 years of married life before Bill's passing in 2009, also at age 97. They were lifelong members of Adas Kodesch Shel Emeth Synagogue.

Flo was predeceased by her parents, Miriam and Louis Newstadt; her husband, William "Bill" Goldstein; her sister, Marian Rosenblatt; and her brothers, Leon and Benjamin. Flo is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Iris and Jack Vinokur; her grandson, Leon (Nisa) and their children, Noa and Zev; her grandson, Andrew; and her granddaughter, Meredith Rosenthal (Daniel) and their children, Maxwell and Annie. Flo is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews.

Florence's family wishes to express their heartfelt gratitude to the wonderful and caring staff at The Kutz Home and Compassionate Care Hospice. "Goldie" loved you all dearly.

Shiva will be observed 7:00 pm Monday, March 20 and Tuesday, March 21 at the home of Iris and Jack Vinokur.
