BEHAR, Mathilda
Mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, best friend. Born April 14, 1923, in Istanbul, Turkey. Died January 6 in Richmond Hill, Ontario, of a heart attack, aged 84.
By Melanie Kazman KOHN, Page L8
Mathilda, or Gram as she was affectionately known by all, was a petite woman. But it was astounding what a large heart she had. She gave completely of herself through her teachings, support and love.
Mathilda was a woman of the world, exuding knowledge and intellect. She was exceptionally well read, was fluent in eight languages and could instantly calculate mathematical equations in her head. She was educated in a French convent in Istanbul, and won numerous awards in school, before moving to Palestine in her teens. She was even accepted to the Sorbonne in Paris, with the eventual goal of studying medicine, but she didn't attend. In 1940, she married Albert BEHAR; they had three children, Yosi, Lina and Ada.
Mathilda remained in Jerusalem through the War of Independence in 1948 and the Six-Day War in 1967. In 1968, she picked up her entire life and travelled halfway across the world to be with her children. In Toronto, she worked as an accountant, a French tutor and a dressmaker. She was a talented woman who did what she had to do to support her family.
Mathilda took a significant interest in her family tree and traced her roots back to Spain in the 1400s. She would tell stories of her ancestors, who were Spanish consuls sent to France, Turkey, Denmark and other countries. A proud member of the Sedaka family, and a first cousin to Neil Sedaka, Gram had a wonderful singing voice.
Mathilda was always there to help family and Friends and shared her many talents with them: She worked at her children's businesses and hand-sewed wedding dresses and bridesmaid gowns. Until recently she knitted clothing for those in need, making hats, scarves and blankets for homeless people, cancer patients and babies in intensive care.
Mathilda was always conscious of others' feelings, and instilled in her children and grandchildren a sense of respect, etiquette and politeness. She had an amazing ability to see the best in people. She perfected the phrase "my sweetheart," said with strong meaning. In spite of her physical weakness by the end, she continued to give with all she had.
Mathilda was ecstatic to have participated in all seven of her grandchildren's weddings, and was blessed to become a great-grandmother nine times.
A lady with class, she loved whole-heartedly and enjoyed the little but important things in life. Certain songs, such as Wind Beneath My Wings, brought her to tears. In her unassuming, soft-spoken and insightful manner, she was a pillar of strength.
Melanie Kazman KOHN is Mathilda's granddaughter.
