First Lubiner Ladies Auxiliary
There are, obviously several women in this photo who are not identified in the list provided.Mrs. Rose Blumfield, PresidentMrs. Dora Goldberg, Vice-PresidentMrs. Esther Myers, CashierMrs. B. Levy, Financial SecretaryMrs. D. Pearlman, Recording Secretary
Dora Waxenberg Myers Alperin is seated, second from left. She was from Lubin; had first married Lubiner Louis Myers (my great great uncle); divorced him and then married Lubiner Jacob Alpern.
Yetta Myers, wife of Louis Myer's brother, Myer Myers (and another of my great great uncles), is seated on the far right. Her maiden name was Fell. Myer Myers was born in Lubin as was his and Yetta's daughter, Dorothy.
I do not know the identities of most of the women in this photo. I have contacted a few Lubin community descendants to ask if their relatives are in the photo. If you can identify anyone in the photo, please let me know.
Of those listed as officers:
Dora Goldberg is not buried in any of the FLPBA plots and I know nothing about her.
Esther Myers is likely the woman married to Samuel Myers, Treasurer of the FLPBA in 1936. Esther's maiden name was Newman and, while she was from the Russian Empire, she was not from Lubin. Neither Esther nor Sam are buried in FLPBA plots.
B. Levy is possibly Ida Sarah Levy. Her husband's name was Benson Levy (originally Liwak) - so the publication's compiler may have used Ida's husband's initial to identify her. Benson was an immigrant from Lubin. Benson and Ida are buried in block 5, gate 567W at Montefiore Cemetery.
D. Pearlman's first initial may also be her husband's. Lillian Perlman was married to David Perlman. They are buried in block 89, gate 156 N at Montefiore Cemetery
