Judith Ehrlich-Hirshman was born on July 30, 1928 and passed on December 23, 2022 at the age of 94 due to kidney failure.
She was a loving wife, mother, mother-in-law and grandmother.
She graduated in 1946 from Roosevelt High School in Bronx, NY. Shortly after, at age nineteen she married her first husband Hyman Ehrlich with whom she had two children Steven (age 72) and Marni (age 68.) She worked as an Administrative Manager in Hospital Admissions at Hackensack University Medical Center (formerly known as Pascack Valley Hospital) for 25 years. She was remarried at age 67 to Nathan Hirshman at age 72 in 1995 after many years of mourning her first husband Hyman that passed at the untimely age of 54.
Her favorite pastimes were spending quality time with her many deeply valued family members and lifelong friends, dressing up, vacationing, going to her favorite restaurants, caring for her treasured pets, listening to her favorite artists from the 1940s including Frank Sinatra, Doris Day and Al Bolly, organizing her unique collection of possessions and acting as the head of the house.
Beyond her sons Steven and Marni, her surviving family includes her daughter-in-law Cindy Ehrlich and grandchildren Harrison Ehrlich and Hilary Ehrlich, her sisters-in-law Frances Bernstein and Janice Zarrow, her nieces Sharon Zarrow, Joyce Larkin, Andrea Craig, her nieces-in-law Staci Zarrow, Elyse Bernstein, Stephanie Bernstein, her nephews Cliff Bernstein and Michael Bernstein, her nephew-in-law Tom Larkin, her grand-nieces Natasha Zarrow Hannagan, Samantha Zarrow, Emily Bernstein, Rachel Bernstein, Jessica Larkin, and Mikayla Craig, her grand-nephews Adam Bernstein, Brandon Bernstein, Ryan Larkin, and Adam Craig, her grandnephew-in-law Cyrus Hannagan, her great-grandnephew Cohen Hannagan and her cherished dog Princesa. She now joins her late family including her mother Ida Zarrow, her father Sam Zarrow, her husbands Hyman Ehrlich and Nathan Hirshman, her brother Martin Zarrow, her grandmother Celia Smolinsky, and her nephew Craig Zarrow.
