It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of their beloved mother, Frances (Faigie) Einhorn/Perlmutter, 88, peacefully in her home in Hallandale, Florida on January 2, 2013. Faigie was born the youngest of seven children in Nizni Apsa, Czeckoslovakia. Having survived the Holocaust, she returned to marry her childhood sweetheart, Jacob Einhorn. Toegether they and their oldest child, Allan, emigrated to Canada in 1951, starting a new life in Regina, Saskatchewan. Tragically widowed in 1965, with two children, she moved to Toronto in 1967 to be with family. She met and married her beloved Alfred Perlmutter and sight unseen moved to New York City in 1975. She and Alfred had 25 years of blissful marriage, travelling and enjoying each other's company. Since his death she has lived a very active life both in New York and Florida. She loved meeting new people, was addicted to politics, an avid theatre goer, and stopped everywhere to chat with babies and children. Never one to be idle, she was an excellent and talented knitter/needlepointer. Predeceased by her husbands and three children, Allan, Freda and Norman, she remained a person who felt she had been very lucky in life. Left to mourn her loss are her daughter, Felies Einhorn (Murray Waldman), her son Barry (Joy) Einhorn, cherished granddaughter Jessica, and step children Leigh (Gail) Perlmutter and Margery Perlmutter. Funeral to be held at Steeles Memorial Chapel, 350 Steeles Avenue West, Sunday, January 6, 2013 at 12:30 p.m. Donations can be made to the charity of your choice.
