Tragic Petirah of Mrs. Shaina Leba Goldfein A”H

candleThe woman who was Niftar Erev Shabbos in Lakewood in a tragic accident, has been identified as Mrs. Shaina Leba (Sharon) Goldfein A”H.

Mrs. Goldfein A”H, approximately 75 years old, was tragically killed after her own vehicle apparently struck her, pinning her underneath.

She was transported by Lakewood First Aid to MMCSC, where she was Niftar.

Askonim immediately rushed to the scene and to the hospital to ensure proper Kavod Ha’meis, and to expedite the release.

Baruch Hashem, with the assistance and efforts of Lakewood and County officials, Askonim were able to have the body released before Shabbos.

The Levaya will be taking place at 11:30 AM on Sunday morning at the 7th Street Chapel in Lakewood, and the Kevurah will be taking place in Lakewood.

In a bittersweet twist, the Nifteres was to celebrate the Bris of a grandson tomorrow morning, and the wedding of a grandchild tomorrow night.

  1. There’s nothing bittersweet about the last part -it’s terribly tragically bitter for her children and grandchildren to be celebrating these milestones without their beloved mother and grandmother who was taken in such an abrupt and heartbreaking way !! May her neshoma have an Aliyah and may her family be comforted among all the mourners of Tzion and Yerushalayim. Baruch Dayan Ha’emes.

  2. to the folks who can not figure the meaning of bittersweet, bitter because there is a horrific tragedy and she wont be attending.

    sweet because there are simchos in the family.

  3. she was something special she really saw people even the small children she respected and cared for, she understood to appreciate other people’s effort and consideration and recognized the need to acknowledge and communicate with others.

  4. She will be remembered fondly as the driver for the Bais Yaakov of Western Monmouth County girls back and forth to school everyday, and the cheerful smile that greeted them every morning. She was a wonderful woman. Baruch Dayan Haemes.
