Libby Farber Obituary
Libby Farber passed away peacefully on January 9, 2018 in Medford Oregon. She was 91 years old. A Bubbie to all who are fortunate to have known her, Libby was born in Lithuania, grew up in Canada, and at 16 moved to Los Angeles where she lived for over 50 years. There she met her husband Daniel Farber and gave birth to her only child, Harriet. Uncommon for the times, and proof of her strong will and hard work, Libby worked 39 years for the Anjac Fashion Company as office manager and trusted bookkeeper to Mr. Jack Needleman, founder of the company. Libby's greatest passion and love were her daughter Harriet and her grandchildren Fernando, Alex and Daniel. Within her family, she instilled lessons of love, compassion and tolerance (along with great story telling and cooking¿the greatest matzo ball chicken soup ever made!) It can be argued that many in Hollywood, CA and Miami, Florida (where she resided for 15 years post-retirement) owe their careers and lives to the kindness Libby displayed via her open door policy to all in need of food or home. Libby was a singular woman and a once-in-a-generation soul. Libby Farber is survived by her daughter Harriet, grandchildren Fernando, Alex and Daniel, great-grandchildren Valeria, Valentina, Sky, Symphony and Anaïs, nephew Harry and great-nephew Max. A memorial will be held in her honor on February 17 in Los Angeles, location TBD.
