In The Durham Hebrew Cemetery

Usually I don’t post entries about people who died as recently as 2006, but after taking this photo of Freda Abramowitz’s grave at the Durham Hebrew Cemetery I felt compelled to share part of her story.
Mrs. Abramowitz was born in Czenstochowa, Poland in 1922 and died in Durham after living in various locations including New York City, Miami Beach, Houston and the cities of her birth and death.
She also survived the Holocaust, a former prisoner at the HASAG forced labor camp.

This was from her obituary:

“DURHAM – Mrs. Freda Goldberg Abramowitz, 84, died Friday, September 1, 2006 at Hillcrest Convalescent Center.

Mrs. Abramowitz is survived by two sons, Joel Abramowitz and Hyman Abramowitz.

A graveside service will be held at 11 a.m.Monday in Durham Hebrew Cemetery.

The family is being assisted by Howerton & Bryan Funeral Home.”
