Harriet R. Handler Obituary
August 26, 1924 - April 22, 2016 HANDLER, HARRIET RUTH (GENENSKY), 91, born in Massachusetts to the late Maurice and Jessie (Kaufmann), sadly passed away Friday, April 22, 2016. She enjoyed living in Los Angeles for the past 40 years, but when asked, she always considered New Bedford her home. Having owned and actively operated her business buying and selling fine jewelry and antiques until age 89, Harriet lived her belief that women are strong, independent and resourceful. She developed a circle of close friends, dearly loved and was loved by her family. She is survived by her son Michael Handler and his wife Linda Zimmerman; her daughter Kathi Handler and her husband Gary Broder, granddaughters Claudia, Alexandra and Jessica Handler, and nieces Marsha and Judy Genensky. She was the sister of the late Samuel Genensky. Funeral arrangements have been made in New Bedford, MA. In lieu of flowers, contributions in her memory may be made to Tifereth Israel Synagogue, 145 Brownell Ave., New Bedford, MA 02740. www.SugarmanSinai.com
