SPORN, Edith Edith Sporn, beloved wife of the late Leo Sporn; devoted mother of Sonja (Ronald Kesten) and Claire (Jonathan Starr) Sporn; cherished grandmother of Leo Spornstarr; dear sister to the four late Rothman brothers - Max, Alex, Sam and Carl; and, a treasured friend of many. Edith valued family, community and her spirituality. She was a member of Beth Shalom Synagogue for over sixty years and a lifelong member of Hadassah-WIZO. She will be remembered for her wonderful sense of humor; but most importantly, for the modest, unassuming manner in which she conducted her life, always unselfish and concerned for the welfare of others. Thank you to all her caregivers - Shala, Faisa (Fay), Helen, Vera, Myra and especially to her friend and companion Emily. Thank you to the staff at Hillel Lodge for their compassionate and professional care. Donations in her memory to Hillel Lodge Therapeutic Department. The family respectfully requests no home condolence visits. A Graveside Service was held at the Jewish Memorial Gardens, Bank Street, Ottawa on Wednesday, September 8th 2010.

May the sorrow you feel now gradually give way to cherished memories of happier days from a long and interesting life.
