Marcia Jaffe. On July 2, my wonderful wife of 53 years suddenly passed away. She was the loving nucleus of a family who adored her. Her whole life was not about herself but was devoted to those around her. Despite many years of illness, she always gave cheer to all whom she met. She is survived by four children: Milinda, Aaron, Rebecca, and Mary as well as two sons-in law: Gary Lorch and Brian King, all of whom share her love of bringing kindness to others. Her grandchildren are Daniel Bork, Yoni Bork, Rachel Bork and Samuel White. She was an extraordinary mother, wife and companion who left us the beautiful memories of her grace, kindness and dignity. We will carry them throughout our lives and teach them to our children and their children as well.
