Mrs. Singer worked as a bookkeeper and sales associate at numerous showrooms in the Merchandise Mart complex. She was a life member of Hadassah and B’nai B’rith Women (now Jewish Women International). For many years she was active as a reading volunteer in the public school system.
Predeceased by her husband, George, in 1996, she is survived by two daughters, Gay Gershberg (Steve) of Parsippany, N.J., and Susan Singer of Dunwoody; a son, Walter Singer of Atlanta; two grandchildren, Brian Gershberg of Chicago and Jennifer Josephson (Jeff) of Villanova, Pa.; and two great-grandsons, Jacob and Connor Josephson.
