TRIBUTE

 

Miriam Schraibman

 

 

Senior members of the Association will remember Miriam Schraibman who played such an integral part in the running and affairs of the Association several years hence. She has most sadly passed away a few days ago. Miriam held sway in the old Association Headquarters which was a house standing on the very site of our current Headquarters building. We will recall Miriam surrounded by piles of papers, the phone ringing, Sambo, our messenger, standing waiting and Miriam fully in control at all times. She made major contributions to the Association Congresses, notably those held at Sun City in the 1990's to which she enlisted the help of her family. Not one to tolerate idleness, Miriam was the epitome of kindness when it came to members in need. She and Helmut were an indomitable team ensuring the smooth administration of the Association.

Our deep sympathy to Merle and the extended family.
