On Dec. 22, Herman Gardner of Baltimore at 100. He is survived by wife Doris Gardner; children Miriam (Moshe) Samsonowitz, Yudit (Shlomo Yitzchak) Cooper, Esther Gardner and Mark (Lauren) Gardner; and daughter-in-law Miriam Gardner. He is also survived by 18 grandchildren and 45 great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by son Shlomo Gardner. He was a simple, poshute Yid who was among the very few in Windsor, Ontario, who held onto Yiddishkeit and passed it on to his descendants. He never complained, and he accepted everything Hashem gave him. He was grateful for his life and adored his children. He longed to live in Israel and will at least be buried there.
