July 19, 1921 - August 27, 2016
Hannah Mae Krumholz, age 95, died peacefully at her home in Miami, FL, after a very long illness. Her life was dedicated to sharing a busy life with her beloved husband, and supporting her Jewish community in every way she could. She participated in the program “Volunteers for Israel”, was a life-member of Hadassah, helped build additions to The Technion buildings in Haifa, Israel, and gave Israel’s paramedic organization, Magen David Adom, some new ambulances. She was born in Kansas City, Missouri, on July 19, 1921; the third daughter of Bernard 'Ben' Greenberg and Lucy (Moskowitz) Greenberg. During WWII, she married George Krumholz, a native of New York, who was then an American soldier stationed at Fort Riley, Kansas. While George was fighting in Europe, she was volunteering at Menorah Hospital. In 1945, after the World War II ended, they both moved to Miami, Florida to pursue business opportunities. There, they both became active members at Beth David Synagogue which continued until her death. Every Friday afternoon found Hannah working in the Beth David kitchen with her Kiddush Committee preparing for Saturday morning. Beth David became her “family” and volunteering was her job. She was always working somewhere; at area hospitals, the Miami Jewish Home and Hospital for Aged or reading stories to preschoolers. One of her priorities was keeping in contact with family and friends in Kansas City with daily letters to her mother, with frequent visits to Missouri and hosting people coming to Florida. Her special affection was for”KIBS" Synagogue at 34th and The Paseo (known today as Congregation Beth Shalom). George and Hannah had been married by its founding Rabbi \Gershon Hadas and she often said that was the best thing she ever did. She wanted to always be remembered by building a Chapel in her name adjacent to the synagogue school building near 143rd & Metcalf. In spite of her close connection to Kansas City, it was her fervent wish to complete her life in her home in Miami, among her many friends and familiar surroundings. So she did. During her last years of illness she was cared for by a Miami professional guardian, Vicki Brail. She was preceded in death by her parents. Her husband, and her sisters and brothers-in-law: Sophia and Joseph Adelman and Naomi and Joseph H. Rutlader. She is survived by nephews, nieces, and other people who loved her. Graveside services were held at Mount Carmel Cemetery.
