About Thea Krauthammer

THEA Krauthammer is mother-in-law since 1974 to Joy Krauthammer (married to Marcel, z"l). We spoke every Shabbat and we spoke on Thea's 97th birthday this week. Beloved Granny to Aviva Krauthammer and husband Brett, and loving great-Grandma to Maya and Eliana. They all make her smile, and so happy. Thea has loved reading holiday books to the girls and sharing Shabbat meals. Now we visit each time I am in Maryland and share Shabbat. Pesach we were always together for decades of Seders along with Shulim, z"l, in Montreal, New York, Florida, and California. Summers were spent in Long Beach, Long Island, NY. We loved the beach in both Long Beach and Miami. When Thea visited us in Los Angeles, she always brought a suitcase of Kosher deli food, especially chicken soup, from her home. Thea speaks French to the girls. Shulim would say Aviva grew like a champignon, a mushroom. Thea loves her girls sooo much. And we love Thea. Her needlework art hangs framed on my wall, as well as the art Thea brought back to us from Jerusalem. - Joy Krauthammer 7.30.2018
