Iris Weismer

Iris Weismer (nee Kravitz).  On June 9, 2022.  Thirty years ago, Murray Weismer finally met Iris Kravitz Goldich, the love of his life. This vivacious and athletic woman had a verve for life, a love of animals, plants, and especially people, along with the drive to power through the multitude of illnesses, accidents, and misfortunes that plagued her throughout her life. At around age seven, Diabetes was diagnosed. Later, an accident put her into a body cast for quite some time. Shortly after they met, she was knocked over at a shopping mall that caused her chronic neck pain and lifelong disability that required two unsuccessful surgeries. Then came the pacer, followed by the triple bypass. More surgeries, more accidents. Diagnosis of Pulmonary Artery Hypertension, and then the biggie - Lewy Body Dementia (Robin Williams’ disease.) Iris fought this diagnosis for seven long, hard years. Most people who knew her had no idea. Dementia with Lewy Bodies affects not only cognition, but also affects all the involuntary processes of the body (Blood Pressure, swallowing, movement, constipation, etc.) Last night Iris gave it her last fight. She held on until the minute her son arrived from California, then began a 24-hour period of active dying. This was an extremely painful (for all observing) but cathartic experience. One which Murray will never forget. Murray would like to thank you to those who lent him support through this long ordeal. You know who you are. Rest in peace. Finally!  Iris is survived by her beloved Murray, her devoted son, Chad Goldich, and her loving sister Eleanore Goodman.  Relatives and friends are invited to graveside services Wednesday June 15,  at 11 AM at Shalom Memorial Park, 3573 Pine Road, Huntingdon Valley, PA.   Shiva will be observed at the family residence until Shabbat. Contributions in her memory may be made to to the Lewy Body Dementia Association www.lbda.org
