Esther Offer very recently celebrated her 94th birthday. A survivor of the Nazi death camps. From the ashes of that destruction she crafted a new life and knew the joy of her great-grandchildren. She was a determined and at times defiant woman who made her way through all the challenges and tribulations of life with grace, dignity and devotion. An inspired and blessed life.
She is survived by children: Shlomo (Suzanne) Offer, Zvi (Harvey) Ofer, Miriam (Gerry) Engelhart. Grandchildren: David (Ora), Rafi (Stacey), Adam (Odeya), Yael, Talya and Jordana. Great-grandchildren: Aviya, Natan, Noam, Naava and Gilad.
