She had a team of young day-care helpers who she was very happy with.  They were totally charmed by her and stayed with her to the end, through a stroke that took most of her, the last 3.5 years of her life.

From Elena: “I am Elena, I was one of Fritzie’s day-care helpers for 7.5 years and to this day my memories of that time and of Fritzie herself, are very good.  Usually older people are demanding and moody, while Fritzie was always very calm with a favorable temperament and in a good mood.

Fritzie thanked me for everything I did for her: for the food I prepared for her and for all help that I administered to her.  It was very pleasant to be around her.  I am very sorry that in her last years she was in a very difficult health situation and was stuck in her bed.  She was the nicest older person that I ever worked with.

May her memory be blessed.”

(Elena’s words were first written by her in Russian, then translated by her daughter to Hebrew and then translated by me to English.)
