Services were held for Hilda Mirkin who passed away on February 10, 2020 in Madison, WI, at the age of 93.
Hilda was born in 1926 in Youngstown, OH, the youngest of three children born to Leah and Nathan Weber.
She was preceded in death by her parents and brothers, Saul and Morris.
Hilda was happily married to her husband Morris Mirkin for 54 years, until his passing in 2008.
Hilda was a proud graduate of The Ohio State University. She moved back to Youngstown where she began her long teaching career, interrupted briefly after she had her children. When her children began elementary school, she resumed teaching first and second grade until her retirement in 1984.
Once retired, she was active in the Youngstown Jewish community, running the Jewish Day School library and volunteering for the Temple El Emeth sisterhood. In 2009, she moved to Madison, WI, to be nearer to her daughter Irene, son-in-law Barry and grandson Sam. She became an active participant in her Madison independent living Capitol Lakes community, where she made many dear friends and enjoyed playing and teaching Mah Jongg.
She is survived by her daughter Dr. Irene Mirkin (Barry) and son Dr. Gary Mirkin (Felicia), grandsons Sam Mirkin and Dr. Joshua Mirkin (Jenny).
The family requests that, if so desired, donations be made to Temple El Emeth, 3970 Logan Way, Youngstown, OH 44505
