Katherine Wexler Obituary
February 11, 1929 - April 26, 2017 Katherine Wexler was a proud LA native who loved City Terrace and Boyle Heights, the neighborhoods where she grew up, and fondly described them as "naturally integrated" during the years she lived there - populated with Jewish, Mexican, Belarusian and Japanese residents. She never forgot when her Japanese classmates and their families were loaded on buses and taken away to an internment camp during World War II. She was a college football fan, a voracious reader, and passed her love of singing and musical theater on to her daughters. Katherine was an avid follower of current events and a terrific Jeopardy player. She leaves behind her sister Charlotte, daughters Marna (Raymond) and Tobi, six adoring grandchildren: Adam (Gosia), Daniel, Talia (Daniela), Josh, Caroline (Greg) and Aaron (Rachel), and six beloved great-grandchildren: Rimon, Aviel, Julia, Livia, Jacob and Hannah.
