With deep sorrow, we announce the passing of Dr. Edith Zoltan Ginzberg, born in Hungary on June 14, 1931. As the last surviving member of a large family, she bravely endured the hardships of war and internment. Dr. Ginzberg persevered and pursued a career in medicine, eventually relocating to Canada where she dedicated herself to helping others for numerous years. She was the beloved spouse of the late Dr. Leibish Ginzberg. After a prolonged illness, Dr. Ginzberg peacefully departed in her sleep at the Apotex Centre on Tuesday, August 29. Fondly remembered, she is survived by her cherished children and son-in-law, David, Hedy, and Patrick, as well as her adored grandchildren, Pierce, Arielle, and Lyla. Additionally, she leaves behind her nieces and nephew, Aniko, Susie, and Miki, along with their families. A graveside service will take place on Friday, September 1, at 11:00 a.m. held at Beth Tzedec Memorial Park.
Throughout her life, Edith treasured her independence greatly; however, she battled several medical ailments that gradually limited her mobility and functionality for over a decade, forcing her to eventually require full-time care. The Circle of Care, an organization providing comprehensive support, became a lifeline for Edith during this difficult period. They assisted her with transportation, daily home care, physiotherapy, meals, and above all, treated her with immense compassion and kindness, akin to caring for a beloved family member. Their incredible assistance allowed Edith to maintain the autonomy she cherished, and for that, we are forever grateful. In honor of Edith’s memory, we kindly invite anyone who wishes to make a donation to consider supporting The Circle of Care through their website: [insert donation link].
Edith Zoltan Ginzberg leaves behind an enduring legacy of resilience and selflessness. Her unwavering strength throughout her experiences is an inspiration to us all. As we bid farewell to our beloved Dr. Ginzberg, we remember her with profound gratitude and admiration for her remarkable life and the countless lives she touched. May her soul rest in eternal peace.
