Elinor Sverdlik Sachs (Dr. Elinor Kron), age 72, passed away in St. Francis Hospital on July 20, 2016. She was the daughter of Harry and Jeannette (Boris) Sverdlik, of Valley Stream, NY. Born in Washington, DC, she graduated from South High School in Valley Stream. She graduated from Cornell University in 1966, with a major in chemistry. Elinor received her MD Degree from Downstate Medical Center, Brooklyn, New York in 1970, and did her residency in radiology at Montefiore Medical Center in Bronx, New York. Upon moving to Hartford,she joined the Radiology Group at Mt. Sinai Hospital. Continuing in that field, Elinor became a partner in Radiology Associates of Hartford, serving the St. Francis Care Group, specializing in mammography, until her retirement in 2013. For much of her career she was the only female radiologist in her practice, and she took pains to extend herself to the many female technicians who worked with her. The female technicians in the Mammography Unit dubbed her "Queenie". From a young age Elinor enjoyed painting -- a pastime she later resumed as she approached retirement. She explained that since her profession required her to analyze images, she wanted to adapt those skills to imagery in painting. In addition to studying with recognized local artists, she came under the tutelage of Sir Roland Richardson, an internationally-exhibited painter from St. Martin, who is known as the "Father of Caribbean Impressionism." Roland recognized her aptitude with color and line, and invited her to study in his Master's Classes on St. Martin. Elinor was invited to display her work at some juried shows in Connecticut, and people purchased her pieces for their collections. Besides painting, Elinor came to enjoy foreign travel. With her husband, Jeremy, whom she married in 2005, she traveled through Europe, enjoying the painting and sights of Spain, Portugal, Turkey, France, England, and Greece, among other countries. She made a University of Hartford trip to Israel, where she thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity she had there to assist at the archaeological dig at Kibbutz Ginosaur. Elinor is survived by her husband, Jeremy Sachs; by her beloved daughter, Cynthia Ann Kron, of Los Angeles, California; her brother, Dr. Daniel Ira Sverdlik and wife, Jane, of Ithaca, NY; her nephew, Brendan Harry Sverdlik Hammond of Austin, Texas; her step-daughter, Claire Sachs, of Washington, DC; her stepson, Daniel Sachs and his wife, Estee, of Suffern, New York; and her step grand-children, Batsheva, Akiva, Sholom and Binyamin Sachs. The funeral will be held on Friday, July 22, at 9:00 a.m. at Congregation B'Nai Tikvoh-Sholom, 180 Still Rd., Bloomfield, CT. Donations to St. Francis Hospital or National Jewish Health in Denver, Colorado. Arrangements are entrusted to Weinstein Mortuary, Hartford, CT.

Nori's family ,
We first met one summer while our families were at the University of Colorado and we were teenagers. I lived in Manhattan but would take the LIRR to Valley Stream and spent many weekends visiting her and her family. I used to look forward to it and have wonderful memories of that time. We lost touch after many years and just recently I tried to find her on the internet. It was with great sadness that I learned she had passed away.

Jeremy, it sounds as if you adored her and I'm so happy for that. Very sorry that I didn't try to get back in tiuch much earlier.

Just wanted you to know that I thought she was terrific.

Jeremy and family, I'm so sorry for your loss. I worked with Dr. Kron as an assistant in the mammography unit. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
