BACH--Hope Harris, died with the same grace and dignity that she lived her 98 years. Born to Lenore and Mortimer Harris, she was a lifelong New Yorker. She graduated from the Froebel League School, where she later taught, and from New York University. She was predeceased by two husbands, Herman N. Liberman, Jr. and Julian Bach, and her sister Joan Blum. Family was Hope's greatest joy. She is survived by her sister, Suzanne Ellis, her daughters, Alice Liberman Eberhardt and Audrey Liberman Matson, and her step-children, Louise Liberman Grunwald, Robert Liberman and Prue Bach Mortimer. She was a devoted grandmother and great-grandmother to Robert Savitt, Robert Liberman, Kristin Allen, Katherine and Abigail Nintzel, Claire Matson, Harry Mortimer and Nathaniel and Oliver Kipka. Hope served as a former president and Board member of Rising Treetops at Oakhurst for 50 years. In lieu of flowers, please send donations in her memory to: Rising Treetops at Oakhurst, 1140 Broadway, #903, New York, NY 10001.
