In Memoriam: Cecily Kaganov Land Kass, 1934-1994

My mother would have been eighty years old today. She died thirteen days after her sixtieth birthday.

Red hair and freckles . . . just like every other nice Jewish girl from Brooklyn.

Thanks, and yes it was. Only recently have I heard the name used more often . . . and still very rarely. Don't know what my grandparents were thinking at the time, because her younger siblings have names that then and today are pretty standard.
