On Oct. 2, Minna L. Katz (Olch). Wife of the late Louis Katz; sister of the late Marion Ruhman and Joan Hassol; and mother of the late Jeannette Brinch. Left to cherish her memory are her sister Wilma Stern; brother-in-law Smil Ruhman; sisters-in-law Ethel Abramoff and Ethel Chaifetz; children Martha Katz-Hyman, Judith Katz and David Katz; and 10 grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren and nieces, nephews and friends. She viewed life as a great adventure and always looked to the future, though she cherished the past. While the last six months have been challenging for the country and for her as well, she had a sense of humor and a forthright and clear view of life, as reflected in an interview she had with New York Magazine earlier this year. There will never be another like her.
