Adela Matyas

(nee Ghelman), 95, of Montgomery County, Pa., formerly of Caracas, Venezuela, died peacefully on 8/13/2022. She was the beloved wife of the late Tibor Matyas-Schmidt. She was the devoted daughter of Abraham and Clara Ghelman and the loving sister of the late Jaime Ghelman.  Born in Bessarabia, Rumania, she grew up in Maracaibo, Venezuela. After marrying, she moved to Caracas where she and her husband raised their daughter. Adela was active in the Caracas Jewish Community and, along with her husband, supported the State of Israel and traveled the world. In later years, they moved to Montgomery County, PA, where they became members of Beth Sholom Congregation in Elkins Park. A retired attorney who enjoyed practicing her profession, she was most dedicated to her family, including nieces, nephews, and cousins who will treasure her memory. She is survived by her devoted daughter, Belinda Glijansky (Alex), two cherished grandchildren, Gheña (Jeffrey) and Avi (Angela), and three adored great-grandchildren, Natalie, Tobias, and Asher. Contributions in her memory may be made to Beth Sholom Congregation 8231 Old York Rd., Elkins Park, PA 19027 or Abramson Senior Care 5 Sentry Parkway East, Suite 100, Blue Bell, PA 19422.
