Norma Lee Rader
October 9, 1934 -  January 13, 2024

Norma Lee Rader (nee Hollander) passed away on January 13, 2024, at the age of 89. In her final moments, she was surrounded by family and close friends.

She was born in St. Louis, Missouri on October 9, 1934, to Kalman and Elsie Hollander, the second of two daughters.

Growing up, she was outgoing, involved, smart and hard-working. She earned an academic scholarship to Washington University, studying social work. In 1955, she married Edward Stanley Rader, leaving college to work and earn enough to support them both as he finished medical school.

Between 1958 and 1964, Norma and Ed had three children – Nancy, Jeff and Dan. In addition to her fierce love and unwavering support for her husband, Norma dedicated her life to her three children, teaching them important life lessons and encouraging them to find and pursue their passions.

After the children left the nest, Norma turned her creative talents to knitting. Over time, she assembled a small team of knitters who, over the course of 18 years delivered more than 15,000 hand-knit scarves, hats and gloves to children in need.

Norma will be remembered for her courage, her kind heart, and her giving nature. She was a voracious reader and a lifelong learner. And she was an exceptional friend. She'll be missed by all who had the good fortune of knowing her.

She was preceded in death by Kalman and Elsie Hollander and her sister Betty. She was survived by her husband Edward Rader, her daughter Nancy Inhofe, her sons Jeff Rader (spouse Sarah) and Dan Rader (partner Hoai Huynh), and her grandchildren Glade Inhofe, Cole Inhofe and Anna Rader.

Services: Services will be held at the small chapel at Congregation Shaare Emeth, 11645 Ladue Rd, St. Louis, MO 63141, on Wednesday, January 17, 2024 at 1:00 pm. Visitation begins at 12:30.

Beloved wife of the late Robert Levine; dear mother of Lisa Levine, Michael Levine (Licia Terranova), and Scott Levine (Margaretta Mendenhall), and Paula McMaster; dear grandmother of Isabel, Gabrielle, Charles, and Eliana; dear daughter of the late Frieda and the late Sol Stetin; dear sister of the late Sondra Gash (Ira); dear sister-in-law of Arthur Levine (Marilyn) and the late Richard Levine (Joanne); dear aunt, cousin, and friend to many.

Myra cared deeply for her family and she had an especially great love of children, working in childcare settings where she touched the lives of many families in her community. She had a rare gift for making each person feel welcome and at home—and that gift came out of her commitment to inclusivity, and her genuine interest in others. Her smile was absolutely infectious, and she smiled often, lighting up the world around her. We will miss her dearly.

Funeral Service Sunday, January 21 at 1 PM at the Mausoleum at New Mt Sinai Cemetery, 8430 Gravois. Graveside interment follows in New Mt. Sinai Cemetery.

Loving grandfather of Jacob, Amy, Talia, Rachael, Eowyn, Matai and Natan. Dear brother of Linda (Barry) Pass and uncle to Greg (Yukari) Pass and Kevin (Libby) Pass.

As a dedicated lawyer for union workers, Bruce sought justice for his labor law clients, embodying kindness and compassion throughout his career as advocate, attorney, and mediator. Bruce was a champion of his family and friends; a world-traveler in body and spirit; and possessed an unquenchable thirst for knowledge about people, places, and politics.

He was an avid collector of labor art, donating over 500 works for The Bruce and Barbara Feldacker Labor Art Collection at the St. Louis Mercantile Library and serving as a docent at the St. Louis Art Museum.

Services: Funeral service Sunday, February 18th at 10:30am at Congregation Shaare Emeth, 11645 Ladue Road, with interment to follow at New Mount Sinai Cemetery, 8430 Gravois Rd. St. Louis, MO 63123.

Marilyn Rae Fox

July 29, 1934 - February 18, 2024

Marilyn Fox, who brought a gentle but determined and down-to-earth touch to the leadership of many St. Louis organizations over a period of decades, died peacefully Sunday of natural causes, surrounded by her loved ones.  She was 89.

Funeral services will be held Tuesday, Feb. 20, at 11 a.m. at Temple Israel in Creve Coeur. Burial will be private.

Beginning in the 1980s and continuing for more than 30 years, Mrs. Fox was a fixture atop more than a dozen St. Louis area cultural, educational and social service organizations, from the Missouri Botanical Garden and the Missouri History Museum to the Old Newsboys Day Campaign for Kids to the United Way of Greater St. Louis. The organizations with which she was perhaps most closely identified over the years, however, were St. Louis Variety, the Children’s Charity; Webster University; and the Jewish Community Center.

At St. Louis Variety, she chaired the annual fundraising gala for more than 20 years, raising millions of dollars on behalf of children with disabilities. Her devotion to children with special needs and their families was unmatched. For a woman and mother who was so accomplished on the world’s stage, she possessed a particular admiration, humility, and respect for mothers of children with special needs. 

“Marilyn effortlessly forged connections with Variety Kids, sharing in their steadfast optimism,” notes Variety Board Chair, Mike Lefton. 

At Webster she served for years on the board of trustees until stepping down about a decade ago.    At the Jewish Community Center, she was elected, in 1992, as the first female president, and later also chaired a successful $18 million capital campaign for a satellite facility in Chesterfield.  The Marilyn Fox Building, a fitness and education center, opened in 1997.

“She was everywhere, and she was always prepared to say ‘yes,’” said Barry Rosenberg, who, as chief executive of the Jewish Federation of St. Louis, worked with her for many years.  “There was hardly a worthy cause in St. Louis, in the Jewish community or outside it, that she wasn’t prepared to get behind.  She had a vision for community.  And she was willing to get down in the trenches to see her efforts through.

“Her leadership was sound, humble, and moral,” he added. “She exhibited a very helpful skepticism. She’d ask a lot of good questions, and she could stand her ground. At the same time, she was extraordinarily gracious and inclusive. She’d talk to anyone.  She’d ask about your family. She truly cared about people.

“And she got results.”

That assessment was echoed by Peter Raven, president emeritus of the Missouri Botanical Garden, on whose Board of Trustees Mrs. Fox served in the 1990s.  “As she did for so many St. Louis organizations, Marilyn quietly and effectively made things happen,” he said.  “She was a consistent source of ideas – for collaborations with scientists in other countries, for example — and she had the unusual ability to turn her ideas into realities.”

Born Marilyn Widman in St. Louis, she was one of three children of the late Arden Widman and Celia Bass, both Lithuanian immigrants. Her father was a general manager for a national retail store chain.  She grew up in the Delmar Loop, which she recalled fondly as a lively, friendly neighborhood where she made childhood friendships that lasted a lifetime. She graduated from University City High School.

During her senior year in high school, she met a recent Washington University graduate, Sam Fox, at a party.  At age 19, after just one semester of her own at Washington University, she married the young man, and left the university so she could get a job and contribute to the couple’s support.

The next year, however, she became pregnant with the couple’s first child.  Over the next decade, she and Mr. Fox became the parents of, in order, Cheri, Pamela, Jeff, Greg and Steven. All but Greg, who died in 2016, survive her.

About 15 years after the birth of her youngest, with the children established and her husband’s business, Harbour Group, thriving, Mrs. Fox found her way to community work, and never looked back.

For most of her life, she once said, she had not thought of herself as a leader.  But the more she got involved with community activities, and the more strongly she felt about them, the more capable she felt about putting herself forward.

And put herself forward she did.  Among the other organizations she served over the years were the Jewish Federation of St. Louis, where she served as president and campaign chair of the Women’s Division as well as board secretary and a member of the executive committee; Jewish Family & Children’s Services; Central Agency for Jewish Education; the Girl Scouts, where she was vice president of the board and a member of the executive committee; the National Council of Community and Justice; Women of Achievement, where she was board chair for two terms from 2003 to 2005; and more.

To all of these organizations she brought a leadership style that was soft-spoken and humble but also firm. Adding to her effectiveness were her genuine interest in others and a lack of interest in self-promotion.

Mrs. Fox’s service brought her numerous awards and honors. She was a Woman of Achievement in 1993 and the Variety Club’s Woman of the Year in 1996. She received the Brotherhood Sisterhood Award from the National Conference of Community and Justice in 1998 and the Magen Ami “Star of My People” award from the Women’s Division of the Jewish Federation of St. Louis in 2001. The Old Newsboys gave her their Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007. In 2009 she received the Thomas Jefferson Award from the Missouri History Museum; in 2012, the Visionary Award from Webster University; and in 2013 an honorary Doctor of Humanities from Washington University.

Along with her husband she received an honorary Doctorate of Public Service from St. Louis University in 2000 and the university’s Sword of Ignatius Loyola Award in 2009; the Excellence in Philanthropy Award in 2004 from the Arts and Education Council, and the Whitney and Jane Harris Community Service Award, also in 2004, from Washington University.

None of it went to her head.  She remained the same unassuming, gentle person she had always been, and kept her focus – despite all her community service – on her husband, her children, her grandchildren and her great- grandchildren.

“I hope the theme of my life,” she said in a 2015 interview, “was living in happiness and teaching that to my kids.  I hope it was being part of the community and trying to help people and be kind to other people. I hope that’s what it was.”

Surviving are her husband, Sam Fox; daughters Cheri Fox and Pamela (Aba) Fox Claman of Israel; daughter-in-law Merle (the late Greg), of St. Louis; sons Jeff (Lotta) and Steven (Nan), of St. Louis; 15 grandchildren; and 4 great-grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to a charity of your choice.

David I. Berland, M. D.

August 1, 1947 - February 18, 2024

David I. Berland, M.D., 76, died peacefully in his home on February 18, 2024. David was born in St. Louis on August 1, 1947 to the late Dr. Harry and Mildred Berland. He graduated from Ladue High School, the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Missouri School of Medicine.

Dr. Berland devoted his career as a child psychiatrist to increasing access to high quality mental health care. He completed his residency training in Adult Psychiatry and a speciality in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry at the renowned Menninger Foundation in Topeka, KS. He then returned to St. Louis to establish the Child & Adolescent Psychiatry training program at the St. Louis University School of Medicine. He later opened a private practice in Clayton. Dr. Berland held leadership positions in the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry locally and nationally.

David’s friends and family will always remember the way he combined his irreverent sense of humor with kindness and empathy – and most of all his hard work to leave the world a better place. David was a political activist for peace and equality, beginning with his opposition to the Vietnam War. After retirement, he increased his role in St. Louis politics, extensively phone banking for multiple candidates, lobbying in Jefferson City for education and the needs of born children, and learning previously unexamined parts of the city’s turbulent racial history while inviting others to do the same.

David was a member of Temple Emanuel, a mentor and a mensch. He was an unwaveringly passionate, lifelong fan of the Cardinals and the Muny Opera, and he single-handedly raised the quality of wine drinking and jazz appreciation among his cohorts. Daily neighborhood walks, weekly breakfast club, monthly Bordeaux meetings and annual traditions like Christmas eggnog, Eckert’s peaches and lobster in Rhode Island always brought a smile to his face.

The heart of his life was his family. He is survived by his wife of 47 years, Elaine; his daughters Kate (Joe Shear) and Rachel (Todd Kiefer); his grandchildren, Eleanor (7), Josephine (5), Isaac (4), and Theodore (1); his sister Marilyn Collier (Richard) and sister-in-law, nieces, nephews, grandnieces, grandnephews, and decades-long and new friends across the country and around the world who made up his tree of life.

Services will be held at Temple Emanuel, 12166 Conway Rd, St. Louis, MO 63141 on Wednesday, February 21st at 10:30 AM with visitation starting at 10 AM. Interment will follow at New Mt. Sinai Cemetery. 8430 Gravois, St. Louis, MO 63123.

The family asks that donations and advocacy be made on behalf of organizations of your choice, particularly those providing services to promote the well-being of children and their families and the disenfranchised, especially in his beloved St. Louis, such as the ACLU of Missouri.  Please visit bergermemorialchapel.com for more information.

Howard Schlansky

August 02, 1954 - February 28, 2024

Howard was born and raised in St. Louis, the middle son of Siril and Seymour Schlansky. After graduating from Parkway Central High School, he was admitted to the first class of UMKC’s six-year medical school program. He completed a residency in pediatrics at St. Louis Children’s Hospital where he spotted a beautiful social work practicum student and asked a mutual friend to introduce them. That student, Carol Rubin, became the love of his life. The two would be celebrating their 42nd wedding anniversary this week.

Howard was skilled in both medicine and business, and approached his practice with the mind of an entrepreneur. Upon completing his residency, he saw an opportunity to meet needs in a rapidly developing area of St. Charles County. He turned down an offer to join his father’s medical practice in St. Louis, and opened a pediatric clinic, strategically placed next to an obstetrician’s office, and near fast food restaurants and churches, which he saw as signs of a burgeoning community. Howard was a beloved pediatrician to generations of patients at Saint Charles County Pediatrics, which he operated for more than 30 years. He ultimately developed a medical complex around that clinic to provide a breadth of services for patients in the area.

In 2012, he became the Medical Director of Pediatrics at Mercy. In that role, he continued to innovate, and was particularly proud to have created the first ADA accessible playground in St. Charles County. He also was a contributing columnist for the Healthy Kids column in the St. Louis Post Dispatch, and a camp doctor at Olin Sang Ruby Union Institute.

Howard was an avid gardener, bird watcher and baseball fanatic. He cheered passionately for the St. Louis Cardinals, Cape Cod league teams and any minor league team he could fit into a road trip. He was an ice cream connoisseur, hiker, skier, camper and frequent visitor to home-improvement stores. He enjoyed long family strolls on the beach and walks around the neighborhood with his beloved goldendoodle Riley.

Howard served the community on the boards of Make-a-Wish Foundation and Congregation Temple Israel. He was a docent for the St. Louis Aquarium, and volunteered regularly at Hillel and Saul Mirowitz Jewish Community School, where his grandchildren are students.

Above all else, Howard loved doting on his wife, children and grandchildren, and was the ultimate handyman, protector and cheerleader for each of them.

In addition to his wife Carol, Howard is survived by his daughters Rebecca Rubin-Schlansky (Mike Vredenburgh) and Hannah Rubin-Schlansky (Rabbi Andrew Terkel); grandchildren Ada and Celia Vredenburgh, and Avi and Micah Terkel; brothers Arnold (Bonnie) of Florida and Steve (Mindy) of St. Louis; siblings-in-law Amy Rubin Schottland (Dr. Paul Schottland) of New Jersey and Dr. David Rubin of New York; and many nieces and nephews.

A Funeral Service will be held Sunday, March 3 at 1 p.m. at Congregation Shaare Emeth, 11645 Ladue Road, 63141. Interment will follow at New Mount Sinai Cemetery, 8430 Gravois Road, 63123.

Memorial contributions may be made to Saul Mirowitz Jewish Community School, 348 S. Mason Road, St. Louis, MO 63141, or the organization of your choice.

Ralph graduated from St. Stephen’s in Austin, TX and Tulane University School of Architecture.  At age 6, Ralph knew he wanted to be an architect. He and Debby married in 1972.

He volunteered with and provided leadership to the Missouri Coalition for the Environment, Boy Scouts, St. John’s United Methodist Church, Old North St. Louis, and numerous other organizations.

Beloved wife of Bill Livingston, mother to Cindy Livingston and David Livingston (Charlie Taylor) died peacefully in her sleep at home on April 3, 2024 at the age of 72.

Born and raised in St. Louis, Jerri graduated from Ladue High School and Washington University. She married Bill in 1975 and moved to Chesterfield where they soon started their family. She was an active volunteer with both children’s schools and extracurricular activities. She spent more than 25 years teaching second grade Religious School at Shaare Emeth, as well tutoring Hebrew students who needed extra support. She served as the President of Shaare Emeth’s Sisterhood, and then became President of Women of Reform Judaism’s Midwest District, and also served on the WRJ national board. Jerri loved connecting with women of all faiths, and was active in the St. Louis interfaith community via Interfaith Partnership and as a leader in the St. Louis Women’s Interfaith Conference for many years.

Komen More than Pink Walk as a volunteer where she worked with corporate teams and was regularly recognized throughout her 20 years of fundraising as one of the top individual fundraisers for the St. Louis walk. Through Haddasah’s Check It Out program, she spoke to women of all ages and backgrounds about breast cancer awareness, many of whom would not have had access to this information otherwise. She was recognized as an Unsung Hero by the St. Louis Jewish Light in 2017 for all her volunteer work throughout the community.
