STEINBERG--Lisa Wolynski, passed away October 14, 2016 after a brief battle with lung cancer. She was predeceased by her loving husband Jeffrey who died in 2009. She is survived by her adoring daughters Nina Scherr and Dr. Kate Steinberg, son-in- law Brian Scherr, mother Margot Hentoff, sister Mara Wolynski Nierman, brothers Tom Hentoff and Nicholas Hentoff, and her beloved Shih Tzu Toby. Lisa was born in New York City on December 8, 1953. She was a devoted wife and amazing mother. Her kindness and passion for helping others led her to be a volunteer emergency medical technician for many years, and a caring elder companion later in life. Lisa was warm, funny, and vibrant, she had an uncanny ability to turn strangers into friends within minutes of meeting them. We will miss her bright presence in our lives and are comforted that she has been reunited with her husband. Services will be held on Sunday, October 16th at 12:30pm at the Plaza Jewish Community Chapel. Donations in her name may be made to National Jewish Health or The Humane Society.
