April 17, 2022 ~ 16 Nisan 5872


Norma (Margulis) Feldbaum, 90, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, passed away peacefully on April 17, 2022, surrounded by her family.

Norma, a native of Newark, NJ, met her husband Stuart at a wedding in Louisville. Together they celebrated 67 years of marriage before his passing in 2018. Norma and Stuart loved to explorePhoto for our website new places, and they traveled the world. They had a wonderful life together!

Norma lived a life of service. Whether as president of Keneseth Israel Congregation, founding president of the Marcy Hyman chapter of B’nai B’rith, volunteer at Jewish Hospital, or reading books with grade school children, Norma was committed to giving back to her community. Her eyes lit up when she was helping others.

When Norma wasn’t volunteering, she could be found at the helm of Goldy’s Shoe Mart, a family-owned ladies’ shoe store on Preston Street, which had a successful business for more than 40 years. Even into her retirement, women would approach Norma to share fond memories of how she helped them find the perfect shoe!

Left to cherish Norma’s memory are her children, Debbie, Alan (Terry), and Karen (Debra Greenleaf), and her grandchildren, Sarah and Daniel. In addition to her husband, Harold Stuart Feldbaum, Norma was preceded in death by her parents, Rose and Leo Margulis.

The family is grateful for the care Norma received by Dr. Priya Balakrishna and Dr. Morris Weiss. And her support team, Kathy, Mike, and Alma at Treyton Oak, and Courtney, Christina, Ashley, and Liz, at Hosparus.

Funeral services will be at 12 noon, Tuesday, April 19th, at Keneseth Israel Congregation, 2531 Taylorsville Rd, Louisville, KY. (masks required), with burial to follow in Keneseth Israel Cemetery. The service will be streamed via www.youtube.com/c/KenesethIsraelCongregation.  Visitation will begin at 11:00 am.
