October 22, 1899 to January 4, 1974 (74 years)

She loved bananas. When they came from Russia, traveling to America (Ellis Island) on the boat, there were bananas hanging on the boat. Her mother said no, she didn't think they were kosher, she had never seen a banana and didn't know what it was. Afterwards, Bessie always loved bananas.

she always loved purses and shoes.

They always played poker on Saturday nights. Bessie lived a block or two from Baron Hirsch. Sam bought a house near Baron Hirsch (a "shabbos house").
