Hilda Mirkin 1926-2020

MADISON, Wis. — Services were held for Hilda Mirkin, 93, who passed away Feb. 10, 2020, in Madison.

Hilda was born in 1926 in Youngstown, Ohio, the youngest of three children born to Leah and Nathan Weber.

Hilda was happily married to her husband, Morris Mirkin, for 54 years, until his passing in 2008.

She 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 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 Mahjong.

She is survived by her daughter, Dr. Irene (Barry) Mirkin; son, Dr. Gary (Felicia) Mirkin; and grandsons, Sam Mirkin and Dr. Joshua (Jenny) Mirkin.

She was preceded in death by her parents, and by her brothers, Saul and Morris.

The family requests that, if so desired, donations be made to Temple El Emeth, 3970 Logan Way, Youngstown, OH 44505.

Arrangements were handled by Shriver-Allison-Courtley-Weller-King Funeral Home.
