'Ma Ma' Goldie was quite a 'live wire' lady. As a young lady she sang and danced with her father Hyman to entertain family & friends. After marrying and having 3 children she became involved with a local group of actors who performed plays on the Jewish Theater Stage Co. She was a lovely actress, who sang and danced beautifully. Some of these plays were produced & directed by New York Composer. She was a member of the Pioneer Women's Club and belonged to a group of neighborhood ladies who played Gin and other table card games, rotating homes for over 30 years. Goldie was also Volunteer at Sholom Home East and with her father and violinist Joe Rosenberg entertained the residents many times. Her 2nd marriage to Ben Walt of Virginia, MN took her away for 15 years. When Ben died she returned to St. Paul and very soon after she was again volunteering at Sholom Home as she said 'helping the old folks.' At the age of 86 she finally became one of them in 1992. She spent the last 12 years living a comfortable & peaceful time. For that our family has to thank the staffs of all the departments in all the fields of care. The nurses on J-2 were very caring & loving people. They showed much compassion and loving care for our mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and friends to everyone. We will all miss her very much. Funeral services 11AM SUNDAY at HODROFF-EPSTEIN MEMORIAL CHAPEL; 671 S. Snelling Ave. St. Paul.
