Gertrude Sylvia Kahn Obituary
February 25, 1927 - April 17, 2017 Gertrude (aka Geri, Gert, Gertie, Googie, Madeline) Sylvia Kahn, beloved wife, devoted mother, proud grandmother, passed away peacefully in her sleep on April 17, 2017. Geri was born and raised in the Bronx to the roar of lions from the Bronx Zoo across the street from her family home. She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Morton A. Kahn (2010). They shared 63 wonderful and adventurous years together. They moved to Los Angeles in the early 1950s. Geri is survived by her three children, Clifford (Joleen), Marc (Kim), and Barbara. She leaves behind her grandchildren, Nicole Kahn, Alex Kahn, and Benjamin Mills as well as many nieces, nephews, and good friends. Geri loved Mah Jong, theater, her orchids, traveling the world with Mort, her friends and most of all, her family. Geri had her sharp sense of humor to the very end and she will be dearly missed. The funeral will be held on Thursday, April 20 at 11:30am at Mount Sinai Hollywood Hills, 5950 Forest Lawn Drive, LA 90068. In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to a charity near and dear to Geri's heart, LARC Foundation (larcfoundation.org).
