Gladys Kanter STEINBERG Obituary
September 22, 1922 - August 18, 2015 Gladys Kanter Steinberg, kind, generous, thoughtful and loving to all, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Tuesday, August 18th. Born in Newport News, Virginia, she exuded the famous southern warmth and hospitality. She married Joe Steinberg in 1944 and lived a life full of adventure, travel, family, and love, visiting over 50 countries. She and Joe were residents of West Los Angeles for close to 70 years. Gladys always had a room in her home or a place at the table for friends and strangers alike. She maintained a girlish giggle, an engaging southern accent, and a playful twinkle in her eye all her life. When you had a conversation with Gladys, whether you were 3 or 103, you had her full attention and support. During her 40+ years as the owner/director of the Creative Center for Children, a preschool in West Los Angeles, Gladys helped new young families start their lives together, always willing to give advice and guidance. Gladys always had a curious mind, and a desire to learn. Never bored, some of her many activities included Girl Scouts, Humanistic Judaism, Marriage Encounter, lunch groups and friendship circles, while being the center of all family activities. Although small in stature, she could be a force to be reckoned with. Once, when being held up at night in front of her house, she threw her wedding ring into the bushes, rather than surrendering it! Gladys is survived by her two loving daughters Roberta Klein (Ray) and Jane Gold (Dan), four adoring grandsons; Seth Grossman (Lolly), Micah Grossman (Mariel), Grant Gold (Renee), and Andy Gold (Christina), in addition to three great-grandsons. One of Gladys' favorite sayings when ending a phone conversation or saying goodbye was, "I wish you all that you wish for yourself." She always said it with the utmost sincerity and kindness, just as she lived. Funeral services will be held at Hillside Memorial Park, 6001 Centinela Ave, Los Angeles, on Sunday, August 23 at 11:00am. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the .
