August 9, 2018 ~ 28 Av 5778

Edith Schimmel Rubin, 89

Died August 9, 2018 at her home following a long illness.  A native of Frankfurt, Germany, Mrs. Rubin immigrated to the United States in the spring of 1939, six months after Kristallnacht.  Mrs. Rubin then fled Europe with her parents to escape the harsh Nazi persecution of Jews.

During World War II, Mrs. Rubin lived in Fort Wayne, Indiana and later graduated from Fort Wayne’s Central High School.  Mrs. Rubin knew no English when she first arrived in the United States at age 10.  Yet, during her senior year of high school, she became Editor of her school newspaper. Following high school, Mrs. Rubin moved to Geneva, Switzerland and Paris, France to work towards becoming an interpreter at the United Nations.  First, Mrs. Rubin attended the University of Geneva.  Then, she completed a degree at the University of Sorbonne.  Mrs. Rubin later returned to the United States to do post-graduate work at Columbia University in New York City.

In 1951, Mrs. Rubin gave up her dream to work at the United Nations to make an even bigger dream come true.  She then married the love of her life, municipal bond attorney Joseph R. Rubin in Louisville, Kentucky.  The Rubins were married for 59 years until Mr. Rubin’s death in September 2010.  Mrs. Rubin often said that marrying Joseph Rubin was the smartest decision of her life and the source of her greatest blessings.

Mrs. Rubin spoke fluent German, French and English. She also enjoyed studying and speaking a variety of other languages.  Throughout her adult life, Mrs. Rubin was an avid Bridge player who loved dancing and socializing with friends. Together with her husband, Mrs. Rubin took great delight in traveling overseas and visited many foreign countries. Mrs. Rubin and her husband also spent many winters in southern Florida.  In both Louisville and southern Florida, Mrs. Rubin was a frequent patron of the arts. She loved live theater, especially Broadway musicals.

Always chicly dressed, Mrs. Rubin was widely admired for her beauty, elegance and sweet-natured charm. She also was highly regarded for her overall sense of propriety and style in all social matters. Thanks to her exceptional beauty, during the early years of her marriage, Mrs. Rubin was a professional model for the Alix Adams Model Agency.  Once, during a live local television talk show, a well-known clothing designer flirted with Mrs. Rubin in full view of the television audience – and her immediate family.  That was when her husband announced: “No more modeling for Mother.”Mrs. Rubin then devoted herself to being a fulltime housewife and mother.  She also frequently used her skills as a former editor to proof-read legal documents for her husband.

Guests at Mrs. Rubin’s home continually complimented her on her interior decorating skills, and she often received requests for decorating advice. Due to her innate creativity, Mrs. Rubin was offered a partnership in an interior decorating company.  However, for certain reasons, Mrs. Rubin declined the offer.

Mrs. Rubin’s memberships include Keneseth Israel Congregation, Hadassah and the Standard Country Club.  She also held the honorary title of a “Kentucky Colonel.”

Mrs. Rubin is survived by her son, Ronald M. Rubin of Louisville, Kentucky and her daughter, Paula J. Rubin of Johns Creek, Georgia.

A funeral service to honor Mrs. Rubin will be held at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, August 14, 2018 at Herman Meyer & Son, Inc., 1338 Ellison Avenue, Louisville, KY  40204, followed by the burial in Keneseth Israel Cemetery.  Family and friends may visit at the funeral home from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m.  In lieu of flowers, the family requests that contributions to Mrs. Rubin be made to Keneseth Israel Congregation or the donor’s favorite charity.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

August 7, 2018 ~ 26 Av 5778

Edna Elaine Klein Yarmuth, 91

Passed away August 7th at 91. She was the anchor of the Louisville Yarmuth family for 70 years.  Born in Louisville on January 26, 1927, to Sam and Hattie Klein, Edna was the valedictorian of her 1944 graduation class at Atherton High School. She attended the University of Michigan for one year before marrying Stanley Yarmuth, whom she had met at a USO dance when Stanley was in basic training at Fort Knox.

Like so many women of that era, she dedicated herself to raising her children and instilling the value of family cohesiveness. More than that, she was a model of grace and warmth who affected everyone she met. She had a brilliant and fiercely independent mind, was a voracious reader, and an excellent bridge player. While she preferred to be a private person, she was comfortable and successful in the public arena. She was a perfect partner for the dynamic chief executive of a Fortune 500 company, but she also was a pioneer as one of the first members of the Louisville and Jefferson County Human Relations Commission. Her life exemplified her commitment to an inclusionary society, both in public policy and personal conduct.

After Stanley’s death in 1975, Edna found satisfaction in working as an interior decorator  with Thorpe Interiors, but most of her energy was devoted to her grandchildren, Jennifer, Jacob, Aaron, Jessica, Jamie, and Braden , who survive her and cherish the time they had with her. She also formed a unique friendship with Ray and Elise Sales, which sustained her for many years.

Edna is also survived by her extremely grateful children: Fran, William (Susan), Robert (Judy), and John (Cathy); her grandchildren, and their spouses, Scott Cheatham (Jennifer), Ross Cohen (Jessica), and Sarah Tate (Aaron). And she doled out special affection to her great-grandchildren, Lucas, Cash, Egan, and Godric.  She is also survived by her sister, June Atlas (Stanley).

One can only wonder what a person with Edna’s innate talents and personal qualities would have become in today’s world. It is safe to say that she would have been a monumental success in her husband’s and sons’ business world, in the political arena, or in any field she chose. Rather, she left her indelible mark on the many people she touched and loved.

There will be a private graveside service.  Visitation will be 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. Friday, August 10th in The Yarmuth Chapel at Congregation Adath Jeshurun, 2401 Woodbourne Avenue.  Expressions of sympathy may be made to Congregation Adath Jeshurun or the donor’s favorite charity.

Sid was born and raised in Louisville and attended Male High School. He graduated from Indiana University where he was a proud member of Sigma Alpha Mu fraternity and remained a life-long fan of both.  Those who knew Sidney knew that his two sporting passions in life were IU and the Chicago Cubs.

Sidney served in the Navy during WW II followed by a long, successful career in the Insurance industry in Louisville. Sid enjoyed and excelled at both tennis and golf and was an active member of Congregation Adath Jeshurun where he served as a past president.

Funeral services will be held at Congregation Adath Jeshurun, 2401 Woodbourne Ave, at 1:00 pm Monday, August 6th, with burial to follow in Adath Jeshurun Cemetery.  Visitation will begin after 12 Noon Monday at the synagogue.  Expressions of sympathy can be made to Congregation Adath Jeshurun, your house of worship, or your favorite charity.

Stuart K. Harris, 81

Passed away peacefully on June 4, 2018. He is survived by his wife, Penny Miller, and children, Donna (Glenn) Garfinkel, Michael (Lori) Harris, and Jeffrey Harris, as well as grandchildren Marni Garfinkel, Ross Garfinkel, Maya Harris, Jada Harris and Josie Harris. He is pre-deceased by his previous wife, Marilynne Harris, and his sister, Esther David.

Stuart was gregarious and outgoing, and always eager to strike up a conversation with anyone who happened to be in earshot. He was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, and graduated from the Pharmacy School of the University of Kentucky in 1959. He was a successful businessman as the owner and CEO of a wholesale drug company in Louisville, and in a separate wholesale drugstore merchandising business with a nationwide presence.

Throughout his years in Louisville, Stuart was a passionate advocate for Orthodox Judaism. His true love was the synagogue. It was not easy to be observant in a southern community with few Orthodox Jews and no kosher restaurants and butcher shops. As a teenager, he raised money so that the Jewish youth clubs would provide kosher meals at some of their dances.  For nearly half a century, Stuart was a driving force in all things financial at Congregation Anshei Sfard, the only Orthodox shul in Kentucky.  He served for many years as Anshei Sfard’s President and Treasurer.  As President of the VAAD, he fought the powerful establishment to ensure that the Four Courts Nursing Home would remain kosher. As a long-term board member of the Louisville Jewish Community Center, he served for years as chair of the House Committee.  Stuart was a strong supporter of Eliahu Academy Jewish Day School, where his children matriculated.  He served as the school’s Treasurer during difficult financial times. Over the years, Stuart received several honors from the various organizations in which he participated.

In 2006, Stuart and Penny moved to Bal Harbour, Florida. There, Stuart was able to enjoy a vibrant Orthodox Jewish community and plenty of Kosher restaurants from which to choose for his nightly dinners out with friends.  He and Penny became valued members and leaders at Young Israel of Bal Harbour, where Stuart was the Chair of Kiddush.

Graveside services will be 3:00 p.m. Wednesday, June 6th at Anshei Sfard Cemetery, 721 Locust Lane.  Expressions of sympathy may be made to Young Israel of Bal Harbour, 9580 Abbott Avenue, Surfside, FL 33154.
