Norfolk —Mona Halprin Belkov, 100, passed away peacefully on April 25, 2018 surrounded by her family.

Born in New York City, she was the daughter of the late Sol and Rose Halprin. She spent her formative years growing up in Pittman and Newark, N.J. When Mona was 19 years old, she and her family relocated to the Norfolk, Virginia area where she spent the last 81 years of her life.

She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 74 years, Irvin Belkov, and is survived by her three sons—Arnold, Billy (Sara) and Charles (Paula), four grandchildren: Jenny, Shira (Brad Miller), Rachel, and Daniel, and great-granddaughter Emma.

The upbeat and energetic Mona had various jobs throughout her life. She was a real estate agent in the Tidewater area for more than 30 years. She also assisted her husband in running family businesses including the iconic Cross Roads Restaurant at Wards Corner. However, Mona took the most pride in always being there for her family and friends.

Funeral services were held in the Norfolk Chapel of H.D. Oliver Funeral Apts. by Rabbi Michael Panitz. Burial followed at Forest Lawn Cemetery.

Donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association, Illinois Chapter, 8430 W. Bryn Mawr Ave. #800, Chicago, IL 60631, or Temple Israel.
