Uncle Jules, Nancy, Marc, and your entire family, we are so sorry for your loss. As neighbors on Hatton Road, through present day, Aunt Selma has always treated me with nothing but sweetness, kindness, & love. Ever time I saw her, she would give me a big hug & a kiss. She was always genuinely curious about what was going on in my life, and always wanted to make sure me & my family were doing well & happy. Aunt Selma defined what it means to be an unselfish, loving, caring soul. May your wonderful memories of Aunt Selma during all the good times, help you get through this very difficult time.

My husband Rene and I have been next door neighbors for 17 years. It has been a joy. Selma was so energetic! We could see her pick up the newspaper on her driveway, while we were still in bed. In the morning she'd leave to go walking with her friends before we were even up! On certain days her bridge club ladies would fill the driveway. Selma was a lovely person, and we will certainly miss her. Our deepest condolences.

We always enjoyed seeing Mrs. Shaivitz at the office. She was always so bubbly and friendly... It was like a party! She kept us up- to- date on Shannon and Alex (with great pride) and we loved hearing her stories of vacations. She clearly had such an active and fun life, she was proof that age is just a number.

Jules, we were neighbors on Seqouia Ave. during our growing up years and the Shaivitzes household was a 2nd home for me. When you and Selma married,I was your best man. You were so fortunate to have found each other. She was your rock and love for over 65 years
Selma was a caring, considerate friend when Joy and I married. she continued to include us in the Shaivitzes family events. She will be sorely missed.

Jules, Nancy & Sussman family -- so sorry to hear about Selma. I always enjoyed talking in recent years, reminiscing about Hatton and Northbrook Roads, re-connecting with Gary in our adult years when he worked for Bank of Baltimore, even the story (whether or not true) of Si taking my mother out on one date. I know she touched a lot of lives, including many I know in this thread, in a very positive way. I hope those good memories will sustain you all in the coming days and years.
