Halina Feldblum-Abileah
In her prime (about 1950)

Farewell to my Mother:
On April 7th, 2003, my Mother Halina Feldblum-Abileah passed away in Israel, after years of enduring pain and sorrow.  She lost her beloved husband Hans Abileah in 1967, her beloved daughter Amira Abileah-Krol in 2000, and her beloved sister Yael (Yadwiga) Feldblum-Weinstein, in 2001. 
In the past few years, Halina Abileah battled the advanced stages of osteoperosis, suffered many falls and fractures, and was constantly in pain.  She requested that we respect her wish that there be no funeral or mourning.  She wrote "just [keep] the memory that I loved you all!"
At least now she is no longer in pain.
My Mother, Halina Feldblum-Abileah,  was a strong and impressive personality.   She was an accomplished fashion designer in Israel, and would have preferred that we still remember her as a  young, striking beauty, energetic, charismatic, healthy, successful, graceful, elegant, and admired by many.

Ella and Ori (daughter and son
of Hovav and Zahavit),

Ron* and Marlene Abileah, 
whom she loved dearly,
and her daughter Ilania.
* Hans Abileah's son from another marriage

Halina's Travels 2001
In April 2001, Marlene and Ron Abileah, brought Halina to Washington, DC, then on to my house for Passover.  After a week with me, she flew to San Francisco to visit Marlene & Ron in, San Carlos, California. 
In July of the same year, she came all by herself (in a wheel chair) to Morin Heights again, to take part in her third grandson Rami Negev and Tara's Wedding in Montreal, July 14th, 2001. 
All our friends and family were impressed by her courage, clear mind and sharp wit and of course, ellegance.

The two people dearest to my Mother
Hans Abileah Z'L, her beloved husband
Amira Abileah Z'L, her beloved daughter.
I am certain that my Mother
would have wanted them to be
remembered with her.
