    Moses, Sylvia Grueneberg

Sylvia Moses Grueneberg of Riverdale, NY passed away peacefully at age 92; she was surrounded by family and loving caretaker, Cherry. Sylvia or "Schiffy", lived a productive and gutsy life. She was devoted to her large family, contributed to her community and will be remembered for her tenacity, wry sense of humor, love for her family, friends and a fierce determination to live life the way she thought it should be lived. Sylvia was born in Newburgh, NY, the youngest child of Isaac and Bessie Moses. She was predeceased by her five siblings: Dorothy, Hymie, Joe, Samuel "Labie" and Max "Mutt". She was married for 37 years to her beloved Willie, who died in 1980. She also was predeceased by one of her children, Norman. Sylvia leaves behind her daughter, Ilene of Glastonbury, CT and sons and daughters-in-law: Barry and Susan of Seattle, WA, David and Anita of Princeton Junction, NJ and Randy and Tammy of Riverdale, NY. She will be sorely missed by her seven grandchildren: Josh, Matt, Zachary, Seth, Robert, Daniel, and Jackie and three great-grandchildren: Nicco, Dylan, and Madyson. Many nieces and nephews will also miss her place as the family "elder". She will also be sorely missed by her long-term caretaker, Cherry and more recent helper, Annette. Schiffy was a great cook (the best brisket and noodle kugel to be found), knitter, crossword puzzler, and avid shopper. She raised her family, enjoyed working at Fashion Villa, always volunteered at the synagogue, was President of the Ladies Auxiliary and in later years, assisted at many Hadassah fundraisers and other charitable groups. She was known to say "this is not a taking world. You have to give." Our mom, grandma, friend was so full of life and energy...it was very hard for her to be still...even in a wheelchair. The day before her death, while lying in a hospital bed, she asked Cherry to "give me something to do!" Schiffy's caretakers, Cherry and Annette, made an incredible difference in "Grandma Schif's" ease and comfort and she loved them like her family. We especially acknowledge Dr. Zeleznik who went far above and beyond with her care for Sylvia during her most recent illness. Funeral preparations are being completed by Lincoln Park Funeral Home in Yonkers. A graveside service will be held at the King David Memorial Gardens in Putnam Valley, NY, today, Friday, January 22, 2010 at 12 noon.
