LIPSTADT--Roth Miriam nee Peiman, 1915-2013, passed peacefully Saturday, July 20th. Survived by her children Helene Lipstadt Mendelsohn (Harvey), Deborah and Nat (Sheron Davis Potashner). Her grandchildren Adam and Jordan (Joanna) Lipstadt, Sophia Mendelsohn (Jon S. Landesman), great-grandchildren Isabel and Alex Lipstadt. Critic, speaker, writer, her fiercest feat, her leading role, creator. A near century of memories her legacy, memories that linger not, for they are Incised, chiseled in the granite of the books, papers, and poetry and the very being of her descendants. Her faith in the Almighty unflagging, for He did not forsake her in the time of her old age, when her strength failed. Funeral Services will be on Sunday, 11:30am, at Riverside Memorial Chapel. Shiva will be observed at her residence.
