Bubbe Maryasha o"h

With great sorrow we report the passing of Mrs. Maryasha Garelik-Shagalov, a"h of Crown Heights, wife of Reb Elchanan, הי"ד, who was killed at a young age in Soviet Russia. Mrs. Maryasha lived to the ripe old age of 106. She was dedicated to 'Oholei Torah' for which she collected money devotedly on a voluntary basis. She would stand for hours on Sundays to raise money for this purpose, collecting from the people who stood on line for dollars from the Rebbe. Rebbetzin Maryasha, part of the scene of 770, was survived by a blessed family and several generations of descendents, many of whom serve as shluchim around the globe.
Another link to the glorious past has been lost. - HT
