Deceased Name: Dr. Leonard F. Abramson

Dr. Leonard F. Abramson, 86, of East Superior Street, a Duluth dentist in practice for 60 years, died Wednesday, Sept. 18, 1996, in St. Marys Hospital in Rochester, Minn.

 

A lifelong Duluth resident, he was a graduate of Central High School and a 1934 graduate of the University of Minnesota Dental School.

 

Dr. Abramson was a two-year Air Force veteran of World War II, having served in the European Theater.

 

He was a member of Adas Israel Synagogue and the Jewish Fellowship Club, the American Legion, a lifetime member of the VFW and a member of the Air Force Officers Club. He was a member of the Northeast District Dental Society, the Minnesota Dental Association and was awarded lifetime memberships in the Chicago Dental Association and the American Dental Association.

 

He served on boards of both St. Luke's and St. Mary's hospitals in Duluth and received an award in 1985 from St. Mary's in recognition of his many years of service on the medical staff.

 

Throughout his career, Dr. Abramson worked on developing products and techniques related to sterilization and infection control. In 1970, he received an award from Johnson & Johnson for creativity in the field of dentistry.

 

He became the first dentist in the U.S. to develop a means of sterilizing the dental drill handpiece at the chair, and received worldwide acknowledgement for his research.

 

Besides his family and his profession, Dr. Abramson's other "life-love" was helping people, which he did throughout his life. He was someone who made a difference in the lives of many people who came to know him.

 

Survivors include his wife of 61 years on Oct. 3, Rose; a son, Wesley of St. Paul; a daughter, Marla of Minneapolis; a sister, Vivian of Portland, Ore.; two brothers, Bill of Milwaukee and Palmer of Minneapolis; and two grandchildren, Paige and Jody.

 

Services: 1:30 p.m. today in Johnson Mortuary. Interment will be in Adas Israel Cemetery, Rice Lake Township. Arrangements are by Johnson Mortuary.

 

The family requests that memorials be sent to the Mayo Clinic or the medical research institution of your choice.

Rose Ann (Hannah Rose) Abramson, 91, died Oct. 3, 2005 in Duluth.

 

She was born Dec. 13, 1913 in Superior, Wisc.

Rose was a member of Adas Israel Synagogue and Hadassah. She served several terms as president of the Northeast District Dental Auxiliary (formerly the Duluth District Dental Society) and was active in the Duluth Air Force Officers' Wives Club.

 

Rose was a gentle and kind lady who celebrated life and found joy in friendship and music. She was a pianist who loved sharing her gift of music with others, performing throughout her life. She began as an accompanist for the

 

Sterling Dance Studio of Superior, performed at many events over her lifetime, including the ''Save Old Central,'' a three day extravaganza promoted by Jay Lurye. Until two weeks ago, Rose held weekly sing-alongs with the residents of Westwood.

 

Known for her ''smile that lights up a room,'' Rose was a warm, giving person who brought joy to the lives of people of all ages. Her gentle humor, warm heart and generous spirit will be greatly missed by her family and many friends.
