Ladies Auxiliary, member of the Kerhonkson Synagogue, and a past president of the Ladies Auxiliary VFW Post 8959 in Kerhonkson.  She was named “Mother of the Year” in 1981 after her son Ira submitted a letter about her.  It was a competition put on by the Ellenville BPO Elks Lodge 1971, and a dinner was had in her honor.
