JGSLA Has Lost a True Friend

From the Los Angeles Times, 6 February 2015

Marion Altman Diamond July 8, 1927 – February 2, 2015

Born in Brooklyn, the daughter of William Isadore and Ethel Altman, Marion was the first in her family to attend college. She earned an Economics degree from Cornell University where she met the great love of her life, Rubin “Ruby” Diamond. They were married in 1947 and moved to Los Angeles with their two young daughters.
Marion went on to earn two MA degrees from USC, in Public Administration and Library Science, which led to a successful public service career. From 1974-92 she was the highly respected Chief Administrator for LA County Emergency Medical Services. She was a lifelong advocate for social justice and an active member of the Valley Cities Jewish Community Center.
She was passionate about history, research and Jewish culture and after retiring she became a docent at the Getty Center and developed great expertise in Jewish genealogy.
Marion is survived by her devoted daughters Abby Diamond and Wendy Diamond Mulcahy, her son-in-law Michael Mulcahy and many nieces and nephews on both coasts. She was predeceased by her beloved brother Eugene Altman. Her loving family and large circle of friends will miss her more than can be expressed.
Private internment at Pierce Brothers Westwood. Donations in Marion’s memory may be made to Jewish Genealogical Society of LA or Alzheimer’s Association.

Martha Lev-Zion z’l

We just received the sad news from Israel that Martha Lev-Zion passed away this afternoon from lung cancer, much, much too soon. The world of Jewish genealogy has lost a real gem.
