Loving memories of Lily--by Dena Nadelhaft

Shared by Susan Gurspan on November 2, 2016

I have so many loving and funny thoughts of experiences with Liliane that I may just end up with a stream of consciousness... I met Liliane when we were sixteen years old when we would  "parade" on Broadway on the Upper West Side in our best clothes.  I liked Lil instantly--with her beautiful smile and even though we liked the same boy, I tried to get her into my Ansche Chesed girls' club  "The Kadimas." BUT the other girls who were probably afraid of the competition nixed it.  I stayed friendly with Lil by myself.  I remember getting her some dates and the boys all liked her and called her,  "the little Rebbetzin" as Lil stuck to her laws of Shabbat and kashrut.

After a number of years, we lost touch.  I got married to Artie, moved to Briarwood in Queens and had a baby.  One day, a starnge man, Wally, rang my bell--stuck outside his locked door with a couch.  I allowed him in (he looked safe) and let him use our phone to call his then  "girlfriend" whom he was supposed to meet on 86th street in Manhattan.  They marreid and I never saw his  "girlfriend"--only Wally though they lived opposite us ON THE SAME FLOOR. Wally told me that his wife (no name mentioned) was pregnant and would be staying home.  So, one day I rang the Gurspan doorbell and who answered the door?? It was Lilane!! We both screamed upon realizing who we each were and became fast friends once again!

There are just too many thoughts.  Liliane and Wally and Artie and I began and continued a lifetime friendship which started with our babysitting for Mitchell and our son David.  We would interchange carriages.  Mitchell was the loudest baby on the floor and perhaps in the building.  Lil and I would laugh about it. Then  "Taminyu" (as her Grandfather, Mr. Gissinger, called her) arrived.  Our two families went to a bungalow colony in Monroe where we spent some wonderful summers.  Lil continued being an observant Jew, and if we played canasta on Shabbos she used sticks instead of money.  Liliane had beautiful hair which accompanied her wonderful smile.  She taught me how to put my hair in big, fat rollers.  She was a wonderful caring friend who, through the years, called us every Friday to wish us a good Shabbat.  Most memorable, along with her caring friendship, was that  "Liliane SMILE"!!  Love to the family... from Dena and Artie Nadelhaft

Caring and wonderful friend, Liliane

I first met Liliane when she and Wally and Marvin and I went to a bungalow colony, Rosemarins, when our children were little - 50 years ago.  We lived in close proximity and would chat when we passed each other on the road from the bungalow to the childrens' camp.  We spent about 5 or 6 summers together and became good friends.  Our friendship contimued after the bungalow days finished.  To say the least, she was a loving, caring and concerned friend, not only to us, but to everyone she knew.  We will always miss her.

Liliane and the Marines! - Bernie Gissinger

Shared by Mitchell Gurspan on June 10, 2016

When Liliane and Wally were living in Kew Gardens with their first born Mitchell Scott and Lily was pregnant with their daughter, Tammy Gail,  Jerry and I decided to play a joke on our beloved sister and volunteered her to join the Marines.  She received a phone call at 7 am from a Marine recruiter asking her to come down to the recruitment center to fill out papers and take a physical exam. She screamed at the recruiter, "If you send someone here to take care of my screaming child, I'd gladly come down and sign up!"  Ultimately, she realized that this must have been a joke played on her by her two comedian brothers.

Liliane always wore rose tinted glasses because that is how she viewed the world. She always saw the good in people.  She always gave to zedakah because she believed that you always got it back tenfold.
