"PEY" 2008 Obituary


PEYSNER o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2008-06-11 published
Early on the morning of June 10, 2008, Lena (Leah) SPERLING (PEYSNER,) daughter of the late Max and Judith PEYSNER, passed away peacefully, in her 94th year. She is joining her beloved husband, Sam SPERLING (1916-1987). Lena lived a long, productive and satisfying life. Born in Hull, Yorkshire, England, she arrived in Toronto, Canada, in 1936 and soon after married Sam. She was a happy, funny woman, fiercely supportive of her husband and children. She was a challenging cook and her bread pudding will be missed greatly by her eldest son, Gerald, though less so by her daughter, Maxine MONROE and her "baby," Stephen David SPERLING. She was much loved by her daughter-in-law, Maggie SIGGINS, her late son-in-law, Shelly MONROE and her late daughter-in-law, Marsha SPERLING. She was very active in the Royal Canadian Legion, General Wingate Branch. Her husband served for four years in the Royal Canadian Navy during World War 2. She was also an enthusiastic member of the Hebrew Men of England Sisterhood, especially during the years when Sam SPERLING was president of that congregation. As her children grew up, Lena took work outside the home, working for many years at Queensway Electric. She was very proud of her nine grandchildren: Jody (Jennean), Faith (Jimmy), Sherry (Wayne), Adam (Alla), Shoshana (Maury), Carrie May, Erin, Daniele (Ryan) and Amber. Leah is also survived by ten great-grandchildren: Taylor, Peyton, Cameron, Duncan, Lucas, Samantha, Sofia, Katya, Henry and Freia. Lena SPERLING was an exciting and courageous automobile driver and her almost perfect driving record was a matter of some wonderment in the family. Services will be held at Benjamin's Park Memorial Chapel, 2401 Steeles Ave. West, Toronto. Interment will be at Lampton Cemetery in the Hebrew Men of England Section, on June 11, 2008. Please check with Benjamin's, 416-663-9060 for precise times. Shiva will be at Maxine Monroe's house, 60 Bruce Farm Dr., Toronto, 416-590-9671, June 11 to 13. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Am Shalom Synagogue, Barrie, Ontario.
