Ruth Bronstein, of Lynn, entered into eternal rest on Aug. 28, 2021 at her home, surrounded by her devoted daughters, at the age 95.
Ruth was the beloved wife of the late Herman V. Bronstein, with whom she shared 47 wonderful years of marriage. Loving mother of Karen Shepatin (David) and Merel Monaco (Christopher). Cherished grandmother of Courtney Joy Shepatin, Matthew Shepatin, Max Monaco (Mollie), and Molly Monaco (Michael). Treasured great-grandmother of Samuel Holden Collins. The loving sister of the late Sylvia Korenblitt, the late Morris Lipsky, and the late Meyer Lipsky. Adored aunt to many dear nieces and nephews. Dear daughter of the late Max and Tillie Lipsky.
Ruth grew up in Dorchester and graduated from Boston public schools. Ruth and Herman raised their two daughters in Lynn. Later, inspired by her sister Sylvia, she embarked on a career as a registered electrologist. In her almost 40-year-long career, she developed many lasting relationships and became a confidant to many who sought her wisdom.
She was a member of Temple Beth El in Lynn, as well as a member of the Sisterhood of Congregation Ahabat Sholom in Lynn.
Ruth was an active member of the Ocean Shores social club, where she organized many fun events. She volunteered for many years at the Jewish Rehab in Swampscott. Ruth was known to create wonderful baked goods, as well as many traditional Jewish delicacies. She loved to walk; take long drives with her family, often visiting her daughter in the White Mountains; shop for treasures which she enjoyed sharing with everyone; and she loved nothing more than spending time with her family. Ruth will be deeply missed by all who knew her, but her positive attitude will forever be remembered.
A graveside funeral service for Ruth was held on Aug, 31, at Pride of Lynn Cemetery. A celebration of her life will be held at a later date due to Covid.
In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy may be made in her memory to Care Dimensions, 2021 Walk for Hospice, Team Lucky Lemures, 75 Sylvan St., Ste. B102, Danvers, MA 01923.
