OBITUARIES

SARRA FELDLEYFER, 92, of Cherry Hill, passed away on Jan. 15 at Virtua Hospital in Voorhees. Daughter of the late Berl and Eva Feldleyfer. Wife of the late Simeon Salzberg. Mother of Felix (Lyudmila) Salzberg of Cherry Hill, Irene Salzberg (Nigel Meachen) of Valley Forge PA, the late Oleg Salzberg and the late Alick Salzberg. Grandmother of Eve and Greg Salzberg and Claire Meachen. Sister of Mendel (Ella) Feldleyfer of South Bend, IN, and the late Tsiva Sklyarova. Aunt of Genie and Nicki Feldleyfer, and Stella Braslavsky. She also left behind numerous loving relatives and friends. Sarra was born in 1924 outside of Kiev, Ukraine (former USSR) and then moved to Baku, Azerbaijan (USSR) in her teen years. She received a Mechanical Engineering degree from Azerbaijan State Oil and Industrial University (Baku, Azerbaijan USSR). She worked for many years in Azerbaijan (USSR). She led an HVAC department in Sumgait, Azerbaijan for 5 to 10 years before mandatory retirement at age 55. After retirement in the Soviet Union, she moved to the USA in 1981. She worked at Kling Lindquist Inc. and then United Engineering/Raytheon in Philadelphia until she retired in 1998 at the age of 73. After retirement, she spent time helping raise her grandchildren and influenced the educational direction they take today. She used her business and engineering mind to help the community where she lived. One of her legacies is the pedestrian light crossing at Chestnut Street and Route 38 in Cherry Hill. When all crossing gaps on NJ Rt. 38 were closed, that blocked people from crossing Route 38 between Cherry Hill Mall and a circle, she got a petition together, drew up drawings to demonstrate the problem and was able to convince the local government that this crossing was essential to the community and businesses in the area. Two years later, a pedestrian crossing light was installed and Cherry Hill Township and the Freeholders of Camden County honored Sarra for this project. Since 2005 this pedestrian crossing light has benefited many people in the community and will for many years to come. Contributions may be made to Cong.
