I will always
Remember her dedication to the the Yeshiva Tochei Temimim in montreal and how she came every day to pick up her husband the Gaon Reb Pinchas ZAL with such a smile and happiness. Rabbi Hirschrung would wait on the top step of the yeshiva steps and the Rebetzin would drive up wait patiently while we would talk in learning with him while shmusing in learning and walking him to the car and he would talk in learning till he closed the door always with a chayus!!!!!. When her great husband passed away she was thoughtful enough even at that sad time to write me a personal card thanking me for everything I did for him during his lifetime and her during all of the years I knew them.

She was a true Aishes CHover

when the Rebbetzin gave out lekach to the yeshiva students on Westbury at the side door of her tenement apt. What a memory. Well, may she be a melitza Oysher

I had once the z'chus to drive the the Hirshspung family back from Yarchei Kalla @ CGI NY. She was such a nice lady, very polite. Good memories of that trip.
She will be missed.

Memories of days gone by
The summer of 1949 our family rented a cottage, owned by her parents, in Prefontaine, P.Q., Canada; a resort town north of Montreal. The Rebbitsen, the Rav & daughter were there too. What an elegent & gracious lady!
