Virg inia Beach —Gertrude Gussoff Stavin passed away peacefully at the age of 93 on October 5, 2016, three months after her beloved husband of 73 years, Irwin.

She was the daughter of David and Minnie Gussoff and was born on August 15, 1923 in Brooklyn, N.Y.

She is survived by her children, Dorothy (Chuck) Goldman and Richard (Dea) Stavin; grandchildren, David Goldman, Laura (Marc) Wingett, Danielle Stavin, Justin Stavin, and great grandsons, Harrison and Brendan Wingett.

Gertrude’s family was her pride and joy. She was an expert knitter who knit beautiful dresses for her daughter and sweaters for her grandchildren. She was an avid reader, played golf and enjoyed doing the Sunday New York Times crossword puzzle with Irwin. Gertrude and Irwin loved to dance and were known as “the dancers.” Although dementia stole much of her abilities, she knew her family until the end.
