Hamodia is saddened to report the petirah of Mrs. Marta Schron, a”h, wife of the noted baal tzedakah, ybl”c Mr. Ruby Schron. She was 75 years old.
The hallmark of the Schron family is their humility and simplicity, and Mrs. Schron was known for her warmth and dignity as she greeted everyone with her kind words and good cheer.
Rabbi Tzvi Silver, Executive Director of Camp Morris, said, “Mrs. Schron was meticulous about attending davening on Shabbos in shul. When walking from her summer home near Camp Morris became difficult, the Schron’s built an addition onto the bungalow of their daughter so she could continue attending the tefilos.”
Mrs. Schron became seriously ill a few days ago, and she passed away on Wednesday night. Her son, Reb Avi Schron, was celebrating the wedding of his son, and the family was gathered there during the evening.
The levayah took place Thursday morning Shomrei Hadas in Boro Park. Maspidim included Harav Elya Brudny, a Rosh Yeshiva in Mirrer Yeshiva, to which the Schron family was connected for many decades. Harav Leizer Ginsburg, Rosh Kollel of Mir and Mara d’Asra of Agudas Yisrael Sniff Zichron Shmuel, led the Tehillim. For the family, moving hespedim were given by her husband, Reb Ruby Schron, her sons Reb Avi and Reb Mordechai, and her son in law Harav Binyomin Cohen.
Kevurah took place in Mount Lebanon Cemetery in Queens.
She is survived by her distinguished husband, and her children: Mrs Chaya Cohen (wife of Harav Binyomin Cohen, Rosh Kollel in Kollel Gur Aryeh of MYRCB and a Rav in Flatbush), Reb Avi Schron, Reb Mordechai Schron, Mrs Mimi Scher, Reb Eli Schron, Mrs Bracha Rothstein, Reb Yechiel Schron, Reb Shmuly Schron, with grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Tehi zichrah baruch.
