Lenore Sherman Silberstein

Lenore Sherman Silberstein - Rochester Cremation

Lenore Sherman Silberstein passed away peacefully on April 13, 2023 at age 94. Lenore was a smart, strong, and passionate woman who was a loving wife to her dear husband Bob and their three children Bill, Barry, and Caren.  Lenore, who was known to all as Lenny, was born in Brooklyn on October 12 1928, to her parents William Sherman and Minerva Isenberg Boyers. She attended James Madison High School, where she was very proud to be named Best Dressed in her senior year, and earned her college degree in history at NYU. She spent her summers at summer camp where she met Bob in 1940. Eventually Lenny and Bob married and settled in Fair Lawn, New Jersey. Lenny was active in Hadassah and served as president of the local chapter. Lenny was smart – she famously completed the New York Times crossword puzzle every day, in record time. She was also an avid reader, known to read as much as an entire book per day.  Lenny was a great mother and wife who fiercely supported her family and many life long friends. She will be sorely missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.

She is survived by husband Bob, sons Bill and Barry and his wife Janice, daughter Caren and her husband Tom, seven grandchildren and two great grandchildren and sister and brother-in-law Ellen and Ellis Sisskind.

Her family greatly appreciates the care she and Bob received from the staff at the Fairport Baptist Home. Donations in her memory may be made to Hadassah.org  or Fairport Baptist Homes.org.

A Memorial Service for Lenny will be held at the Fairport Baptist Home, 4646 Nine Mile Point Road, Fairport NY on Monday, May 22 at 2 PM. For those unable to attend in person, arrangements will be made for a virtual meeting. A link to the virtual meeting will be made available prior to the service via email. For assistance with virtual meeting attendance please contact Barry Silberstein via email at bsbig60@gmail.com.

    To Uncle Bib, Bill, Barry and Caren, I’m so very sorry for your loss. I miss her and am still in disbelief that this is real. I have such fond memories of Aunt Lenny, and sleepovers in Caren’s room. I can still hear her voice and her laugh.

    Love to all of you and your families as you start to navigate your new normal.

    Bye Len
    I will miss our weekly chats via Alexa. There were a zillion things about you that I was so proud of and still am.
    Kids have memories of you as as a loving aunt whose house they loved going to because. It was far away to them and of course looking forward to playing with their cousins. This obituary which is well written is only a small part of her busy life. She was president of the world to me because she was my big sister and she could do anything.. of course I’ll miss her. But we will continue to be her family who will still share our good and bad things together she would want that
