DWORKIN
LEON DWORKIN, B-17 pilot, local hero and Chester businessman passes away.
LEON DWORKIN, 92, surrounded by family, passed away quietly on August 20, 2012. Born
on December 9, 1919 to Russian immigrants MORRIS and ROSE DWORKIN, LEON'S life
was shaped by those unique American experiences which made him typical of what is often
described as the greatest Generation. A product of the great depression, MR. DWORKIN
learned generosity from his parents who gave away food to needy neighbors from their
grocery store in the Camden New Jersey. After graduating at the top of his class from
Camden high school he attended University of Pennsylvania where he received a bachelor's
degree in chemical engineering. Not long after his graduation, on December 7th 1941, the
United States was attacked at Pearl Harbor prompting MR. DWORKIN to work at a
Grumman Aircraft factory in Baltimore as an inspector helping to manufacture airplanes for
the war effort. In 1942 despite a military deferment and pleas from his parents, he, like his
brother HARRY, would volunteer for the U.S. Army Air force. LEON attained a rank of
second lieutenant and as a B-17 pilot flew bombing raids with the 8th air force out of
England; LEON flew 17 missions over Germany.
After the war he became an engineer at Sinclair oil refinery in Marcus Hook where he
worked on and designed many techniques to transform the facility from the batch processing of petroleum to that of a continuous process. A few years later, LEON attended a
synagogue dance in Camden New Jersey and met his future wife, HELEN RENEE LONG;
they were married on September 19, 1948.
On January 2, 1950 MR. DWORKIN'S normal life took an extraordinary turn which put his
character to test. While on a ferry from Bridgeport N.J. to Chester, PA, the boat collided
with a freighter causing an elderly man to be thrown into the icy waters of the Delaware
River. Without concern of his own life, LEON DWORKIN jumped from the upper deck into
the swirling river to save the man. MR. DWORKIN received both the Sinclair AA award and
accommodation from the Delaware River Port Authority and U.S. Coast Guard. Over the
following years when asked about this experience, LEON would recount that while waiting
for a boat to retrieve him from the water (as his arms and fingers became too swollen and
numb to wrap a sling around himself) he was certain he would not make it. Despite the
circumstances MR. DWORKIN never let go of the unconscious man and kept his face out of
the water.
A few years after this event, MR. DWORKIN with a friend, ROBERT CETLIN, started a scrap
metal company, Salem Iron & Metal, which eventually located and operated on the West
End of Chester. This business enabled MR. DWORKIN to raise a family with three boys,
LAWRENCE, GERALD and ROSS and help them start careers as a lawyer, physician and
engineer. In addition to raising his own children, MR. DWORKIN also donated time to the
B'nai Brith Youth Organization as an advisor to teenage boys for almost 20 years.
Upon his retirement in 1986, MR. DWORKIN spent much of his time doing what he loved
best, swimming on the beaches of Ventnor New Jersey, filming video of his family, spending time with his wife, and continually being with his three children, their wives and his 8
grandchildren JONATHON, IAN, AMANDA, ERICA, LEAH, MYLES, MARA JO and ZACHARY
and his sister BETTY who also survives him. He will always be loved and missed by those
who knew him.

GERTRUDE ("GERY") BROOKS HANKIN peacefully died at the age of 90 in her apartment in

HANKIN, ALLAN NAPPEN and his wife JULIE NAPPEN, DARA KING, ALEXANDER HANKIN
and DANIELLE HANLCIN and twelve (12) great-grandchildren.
GERY HANKIN was bom in Philadelphia in 1922 to her parents, GEORGE and ETHEL
BROOKS. Her parents established and operated a chain of 19 millenary stores in Philadelphia, New Jersey and Delaware. During her youth she and her brother BILL BROOKS worked
with their parents in their Philadelphia stores. She was preceded by her brother BILL
BROOKS, who served in the Fighting 69th in World War II, following in the footsteps of their
father who served in the same division during World War I.
GERY graduated from Overbrook High School and attended Bucknell University until her father's death at which time she returned to Philadelphia and graduated from Beaver College.
She married PERCH P. HANKIN on October 18, 1942. Together with the other eight members
of the HANKIN/SHANKEN families, they founded a successful family business, the Hanlcin
Organization, which, over the years, built numerous residential housing projects in Montgomery and Bucks Counties, built and managed the second and fourth Howard Johnston's
Motor Lodge in the Howard Johnson's Hotel chain before founding, building and operating
the George Washington Motor Lodge chain with 1,800 rooms in southeastern Pennsylvania.
MRS. HANKIN handled the interior decoration of all of the motels.
The family business of which she was an integral member went on to develop numerous industrial parks, the Willow Grove Shopping Center (the second suburban shopping center in
the Philadelphia area), many restaurants, Willow Grove Amusement Park, one of the first
large amusement parks in the United States, and Willow Grove Bowling Lanes, the largest,
bowling emporium in the country with 116 bowling lanes, three restaurants and a state of the
art childcare facility. She was a founding shareholder of the Bank and Trust Company of Old
York Road, which was the first bank to be established in the State of Pennsylvania after the
Great Depression, and the Bank of King of Prussia.
GERY HANKIN designed, managed and coordinated the interior decorating of the Willow
Grove Bowling Lanes, the family restaurants and all of the branches of the two banks. During
her interior design career, she met and consulted with such luminaries as world renowned
architect, Frank Lloyd Wright and Walt Disney, amongst others.
GERY HANKIN was an active member in the many Jewish charitable organizations including
being president of the local chapter of ORT and the Auxiliary of the Philadelphia Geriatrics
(now the Abramson Center), an active member of the Israel Bonds organization and an active
supporter of many other Jewish charitable organizations.
The family would request that any charitable contributions made in MRS. HANKIN's honor be
made to the American Friends of Magan David Adom (212-757-1627), which purchases
much needed ambulances for use in the state of Israel, or the Abington Hospital Hospice

KUPFERBERG
JEROME KOFF
August 3, 2012 San Francisco CA
JEROME was born on 23 July 1923 the second of two children of LEAH RACHEL ROSENTHAL and MYER HERMAN KOFF. JEROME and his older brother MANUEL, who
died in World War II while serving his country, grew up in Collingdale, Delaware County,
PA. The family later moved to Bryn Mahr,
where MYER purchased a grocery store.
Tired of snow and ice, the family moved to
Los Angeles in 1946, settling first in Alhambra, then in North Hollywood. In 1947,
JEROME married JOANN DORMAN and they
had two children. Their marriage ended in divorce in 1967.
JEROME took the 5th Commandment seriously. After his father died, he cared for his
mother until her death from cancer. He then
cared for his mother’s sister, RICCA ROSENTAL JIMENEZ, until her death. Later, he
cared for one of his elderly neighbors. He
helped her with daily chores, allowing her to
live independently for many years.
JEROME spent many years of his life in Seal
Beach Leisure World. He made many friends
there and served on the board of directors.
He cared deeply for Leisure World and he
helped make the decisions that improved life
for all Leisure World residents.
JEROME will be dearly missed by his daughter MARILYN KOFF of North Las Vegas, NV,
by his son JACOB (and JEANETTE) and by
their two children NATHAN KOFF and RACHEL KOFF, all of San Francisco, CA.
A special thank you is due ROSITA VIRAY,
JEROME’s friend and companion for many
years. ROSITA, her children and grandchildren cared very much for JEROME and he for
them. The VIRAY’s were a second family for
him, and he returned their friendship and
love. We are grateful to them for the love
and caring they showed our father.
Music played an important role in Jerome’s
life. Over the years, he played slide trombone, violin, accordion and piano. It was on
the piano he most intensely expressed himself. Though not a trained musician, he
played wonderfully, pouring his emotions
into his music. His music had the fire, the
life and the sparkle that better-trained musicians could only wish their music had.
From the woods of Collingdale, to the palm
trees of Southern California—in distance not
far at all, especially by today’s standards, but
how long and eventful the journey.
The memory of his love and his many good
deeds will live on, until all who knew him are
themselves gone. From dust to dust and
la’dor va’dore.
HARDY KUPFERBERG (nee WIERSCH), died
August 6, 2012 one month short of her 90th
birthday. Born in Berlin, Germany and a long
time resident of Philadelphia. HARDY was
preceded in death by her loving husband,
J. KURT. HARDY�S journey had been a long
and tortuous one, one that in 1933 was
detoured down the darkest road in the history
of the Jewish people. It was fourteen years
later, that HARDY’S life started on course
again when she met her wonderful husband
KURT, followed by the birth of their daughter
ELLEN. As the sole survivor of her family –
89 members whose lives were extinguished
in the Holocaust – HARDY was a sober
reminder to the rest of us of how precarious
life was for a Jew in the non Jewish world
and how the creation of Israel had made a
difference for her. She was zealous in her
efforts in support of her spiritual homeland.
On meeting HARDY, one was struck by her
crusading spirit. Rising above the physical
frailties that stemmed from her concentration
camp experience, HARDY was an ardent
supporter of Jewish life. Her overriding
concerns drew her to NA’Amat, USA, whose
projects and programs enhance the quality of
life in Israel and assured Israel’s future.
HARDY was a long time President of the
Adamah Chapter of NA’Amat, USA. She and
KURT volunteered at several nursing homes
and often volunteered at Federation’s Super
Sunday. She supported associations connected to animal welfare and was dedicated
to organizations such as ARMDI and ZOA.
HARDY and KURT were also active members
of the Association of Jewish Holocaust
Survivors and spoke effectively at schools
and colleges to teachers and students
about their Holocaust experience. Much of
HARDY’S strength was derived from the support of her adoring husband, KURT, and from
ELLEN BORNSTEIN, her only daughter, as
well as MILT, ELLEN’S husband. HARDY will
never be forgotten by the people whose lives
she touched...a very special lady. There was
no one quite like her. Contributions in her
memory may be made to Crossroads Hospice, 523 Plymouth Rd., Suite 225, Plymouth
Meeting, PA 19462 or to Israel Guide Dog

If love could have kept you here,
you would have lived forever.
Nothing has changed,
Wait for me.

Always in our thoughts
no matter where we go, always in our hearts
because we love you so.
They say time heals all sorrow
and helps us forget,
but time so far has only proved
how much we miss you yet.
Sadly missed and always remembered.
