Obituary

Flora Kuritsky (nee Dubin) passed away peacefully on October 11, 2019. She was born in Brooklyn, NY on September 16, 1925. She was preceded in death by her husband of 71 years, Murray. Flora leaves behind three children, Helene Rashkow of Phoenix, Sheila Hamilton of Buffalo Grove, IL and Lloyd of San Diego. She had five grandchildren: Amanda, Jenna, Jake, Cody, and Emory and five great grandchildren: Samantha, Sophie, Max, Libby and Maisy.

Flora was a very social, upbeat, and creative individual. She loved to be involved with numerous activities and greatly enjoyed working on craft projects, from knitting and crocheting, to calligraphy. She loved to make presents of the personalized craft projects that she created. Many members of her family cherished for years her regular production of chocolate birthday, anniversary and congratulations cards. All of her family members knew the love that went with all of the personalized gifts that Flora often made or baked in the oven and gave to them.

Because of her baking skills, Flora was known for her very special Mandelbrot amongst her family and close friends. A constant supply of these was always being produced to meet the popular demand.

When her children were growing up, Flora had been active in the local PTA, in local theater productions and she had served as a local Brownie and Girl Scout leader. She had been active in B’nai B’rith, Hadassah, and Women’s American Ort.

She enjoyed many years of international travel with Murray, as well as maintaining social connections with a large and diverse group of friends. In earlier years, she pursued professional singing and had been the entertainment for World War II bond rallies. In later years, when she was not producing crafts, she enjoyed participating and sometimes teaching a Yiddish group at the Vi at La Jolla, where she resided. Flora and Murray had moved from New Jersey to Rancho Bernardo in 1989, before moving to the Vi in 2012. She was confident that when they made the trip West, leaving friends behind, she would have many new friends in her new hometown. Because of her personality, she wasn’t disappointed. Flora was loved very much and will be deeply missed by all of her family and all of her friends, who knew her as a sweet, fun-loving, sociable, and generous woman.
