Born March 3, 1923, our dear Bela passed away July 31, 2020.
As a Holocaust survivor, Bela had a passive strength as she and Nathan navigated their lives in America working long days with Bella then returning home to be a mother and homemaker.
Bela had a sense of style and loved fashion. She readily engaged with all she met and remembered all the details of their stories. She was generous and got pleasure in helping her family in Israel and anyone who needed a helping hand. Warmly greeted as Ms. Bela on her outings, she enjoyed playing cards, shopping and of course the casino. Her family relished her food, especially around the holidays when her homemade kreplach was considered family “gold.” She found comfort in attending weekly Shabbat services at the AA Synagogue, especially after the loss of her husband, Nathan. She and Nathan were co-founders in the creation of Hemshech in the Jewish community. Bela will be remembered and missed by her family and friends, and her spirit will live through her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Bela is predeceased by her husband Nathan Bromberg. She leaves behind a loving family who were her greatest joy: her children and their spouses Lisa and Darryl Rockwitt, Helen and Max Benkel, and Sam and Barbie Bromberg, and son Alex Bromberg; grandchildren Jason (Yooly), Dena, Samantha (Todd), Russell, Melissa, Lenny and Zachary; as well as her three beautiful great-grandchildren Jennifer, Lily and Alex, will miss her dearly.
