Obituary

Meyerson, Miriam nee Kimelman , was born on August 25,1920 and died on March 9, 2018, following a brief illness. Beloved wife of Leo Meyerson (d.1996) for 50 years. Cherished mother to Roberta Richard (Michael Silverman) Deborah Meyerson and Ronald Meyerson (Jo), Loving daughter to Kushe and Rivka Kimelman, friend to Abe Schloff.

Born and raised in Pittsburgh PA. Miriam also lived in Venice CA, and in her final years, Austin TX. She married, resided and raised her family in Omaha, NE where she lived for 62 years. Miriam was a working mother long before it was fashionable for women to work outside the home. She had a desire to be productive in the workforce, but never allowed employment to eclipse her extraordinary commitment to her family. Her interests included music, Yiddish, mahjong, dancing, reading and in later years, traveling. Her Jewish identity was intrinsically connected to how she lived and what she valued. She possessed a strong life force, a ready laugh, a listening ear and a deep love of family. Always well liked, she had a number of close friends throughout her life. She genuinely touched many others as well, all of whom have expressed affection and gratitude for having had the opportunity to have known her. She will be deeply missed and forever loved.

Graveside services will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 14th at Beth El Cemetery in Omaha, Nebraska.

Donations honoring her life and memory may be sent to: The Rose Blumkin Jewish Home, The Omaha or Austin Jewish Community Centers.
