Edith (Mann) Bomstein
Died 1/24/2005

January 24, 2005 Edith Bomstein, formerly of Syracuse and Manlius, died on January 24 at the age of 82 of natural causes. She and her husband, Joseph Bomstein, relocated to the Philadelphia area almost four years ago when his health began to decline. Mrs. Bomstein and her family moved to Syracuse in 1960 when her husband took a position with Bristol Myers as a chemist. An accomplished pianist, she especially loved to play Beethoven and Chopin pieces. She was active at Temple Adath Yeshurun both in the sisterhood and Hadassah. She later helped run a food program for the needy that was funded in part by the national Jewish charitable organization, Mazon. For many years, she and her husband participated in a monthly Jewish study group. When she was not raising her children, she enjoyed playing bridge and traveling with her husband. In the summers, she loved to go to Green Lakes to swim and spend time with her friends. In the fall and winter, there were drama productions on campus and performances of the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra to attend. Mrs. Bomsteins decline began with the deterioration of her husbands health and was accelerated when he died in June, 2004. Funeral services took place on January 27 outside Philadelphia. She is survived by her brother; and her sister; as well as, three children; seven grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews. The family requests that any contributions be made to MAZON, 1990 S. Bundy Drive, Ste. 260, L.A., CA 90025.
