Dear Family and Friends,

It is with profound and incomprehensible sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Marta-Beth Friedman. Marta battled heroically for six years and two months and endured unimaginable pain and suffering along the way. Throughout her epic battle, Marta courageously lived and loved life to the fullest each and every day. Marta traveled the world on amazing adventures throughout her life and during her battle, bonded with her grandson Charlie, and enjoyed many happy occasions and get-togethers. 

The family will honor and memorialize Marta by establishing a fund at the David Posnack JCC Holocaust Learning Center to endow the annual Yom Hashoa Days of Remembrance of the Holocaust Month long community programs. To memorialize Marta, please contact the JCC at 954-434-0499, ext. 336 or click here  to donate

Words cannot express how deeply grateful we are to all of you who supported us throughout Marta‚Äôs lengthy and heroic fight.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.


Bernie & the entire Friedman, Stern, and Polashuk Families


May the family be comforted along with all those who mourn for Zion and Jerusalem
