MOROFF--Saul Victor,

loved his life. In his retirement, he undertook a serious genealogical study and narrative of his extended family and wrote that his childhood in Reading, PA (born to Martin and Yetta Moroff) was an especially happy one. He was selected as valedictorian to his graduating high school class and described his college years at Yale (class of 1956) as "a never-ending joy." He was a passionate doctor and educator after medical school at Columbia P&S, his internship and residency at Jacobi and Einstein, and a fellowship at Montefiore. He served in various leadership positions throughout his medical career, including Chief Resident and Director of the Medical Service at Einstein Hospital. However, it was his marriage to Libby (nee Levinson) that he considered perhaps his most important achievement. Their love and respect for one another made them perfect companions, as did her support for his medical career and his for her political one. During their mutual retirement, they took courses, went to museums, read with book clubs, traveled with friends and family, attended concerts, walked the city, completed a few cross-country drives, and rested in Amagansett. Saul is survived by his daughters, Margaret and Diane Moroff, and his grandchildren, Noah and Sadie Reuter, his sister- in-law, Ruth Preven, his brother-in-law, David Preven, both their spouses and their children and grandchildren - all of whom love him more than they can say. The family will be accepting visitors at Saul's apartment on May 15 and 16, 5pm-8pm. Any contributions on his behalf can be made to Libby's high school alma mater, Oakwood Friends School, 22 Spackenkill Road, Poughkeepsie, NY 12603, or the non-profit Margaret serves, Advocates for Children of New York: advocatesforchildren.org.
