MEMORIAL WALL OF BRIDGE PLAYERS

In Memoriam

Our lives go on without you
But nothing is the same
We have to hide our heartache
When someone speaks your name
Sad are the hearts that loved you
Silent are the tears that fall
Living without you is the hardest part of all

It is with great sadness that I tell you that Don Goldberg has passed away at age 92.

He was the beloved husband of Maxine Goldberg and wonderful bridge friend to all of us.

 

 

Don played with us on Thursday mornings (mostly), and we will fondly remember his kind and pleasant manner.

Everyone enjoyed playing bridge with him and I will miss him.

 Paula Craven was a wonderful bridge player and person, who was known and admired by so many.

Paula had recent surgery and died on December 13.

I am so grateful that she came and joined our bridge club.  I will miss her dearly.

It is with great sadness that I send you the news that Sue Kuder passed away on Wednesday, 7/22.

She died from cancer that was only detected at a very late stage.  Her globe obituary and a picture are attached above.

Sue played with us on Thursday mornings (mostly), and we will fondly remember her kind and pleasant manner.

Everyone enjoyed playing bridge with her.  Sue was a wonderful person and I will miss her so.

 

From Nicole Gardner:   Sue and I worked together a lot in Watertown on social justice issues.  She was the President of World in Watertown, which does so much to build this community.  She invited me to serve as treasurer and be on the board, so we got to know each other pretty well.  All of us are all a little shell shocked at how quickly her illness progressed.

 

From Susan Flint:  After her diagnosis in the spring, she was in and out of the hospital, but did manage to play on-line at least once several weeks ago. The end came much more quickly than anyone expected, but she was able to visit with close friends and family shortly before she died peacefully.

 

She will forever be in our memories…

It is with great sadness I found out from Dorothy French's daughter   that Dorothy passed away last Thursday from a fall she took in the hospital.  She was 93.  

                             Sad News:  Our stay at home player, Danny                              Wang,  passed away on Saturday, Aug 29.
                              May his memory be a blessing.

It is with great sadness that I send you the news that Walt Tetschner (husband of Carolyn)  has passed away.

 

Walt was “positive” for Covid-19 but suffered a stroke.  Walt played at St Camillus occasionally, but Carolyn played often.

Cards can be sent to Carolyn Tetschner, 27 Grasshopper Lane, Acton, MA 01720

Sad news. My mother died peacefully last night at MeadowGreen Nursing Home in Waltham after just recently celebrating her 94th birthday. I was able to talk to her daily and my sister and I FaceTimed with her a number of times.  She asked that all of her friends say a prayer for her and take care of themselves during these challenging times. 

 

She told me that she really cherished her memories of playing bridge at the Belmont Bridge Club “with all of the nice people”. Thanks for running all of those great games and celebrating her bridge achievements with that wonderful cake with her picture on it!

 

Bob, thanks again for everything!
