Queenie was born and lived in the east end of London She was so proud of her roots and retold stories of the East End throughout her life time. She came from a family who cared for many different areas in the community. Her aunt was the superintendent of the Jews Temporary Shelter, her father was secretary of the Federation of Synagogues and her sister was a nurse and ambulance driver in the war. She moved from the East End to live in Hendon with her husband Tobey and continued to volunteer with Ajax. When Waverly Manor moved to Hendon she was the first person to offer help and was a regular visitor assisting in any way she could.
When she moved to Bushey As a member of the league of Jewish Women she voluteered at Princess Alexander Care Home, painting residents nails, playing bingo and setting up a discussion group to talk about the East End. Jewish Care was in her heart and when she sadly needed their help and support they were there for her. They helped her to end her days in a warm and caring way and supported her family too. We will all be indebted to Jewish Care and will continue her legacy by continuing to support them in any way possible.
