  1. Leah was mekabel her yessurim bahava. She had an upbeat attitude and always made the other patients happy and tried to take care of their needs. Her positive outlook and smile will be missed in the halls of Leisure Chateau. May she be a meilitz yosher for her family.

  2. #7 – Yes. A twin brother, Rabbi Yitzchok Finkel, and a younger sister, Malka Povarsky (daughter-in-law of Rav Berel Povarsky). Reb Elya Boruch zt”l was the bechor. Her grandparents were Reb Leizer Yudel Finkel zt”l Rosh Yeshivas Mir and Reb Mordechai Dovid Levin – the Darkei Dovid – Rosh Yeshivas Eitz Chaim. She was a worthy descendent of these Gedolim, always focusing on others even when she herself was suffering.
