1942 JOSEPH 2021


1942 — January 1, 2021

On Monday, April 5, 2021 Joseph Edelstein, loving husband of Esther, passed away at the age of 79. Born in Philadelphia, Joe graduated from Olney High School and Columbia Business College. He had a passion for sports and followed all the Philadelphia teams. A devoted Philadelphia A's fan, he transferred that allegiance to the Phillies and reveled in their World Series wins � and in the Eagle's Super Bowl victory. But his greatest pleasure in life was spending time with his devoted wife. Their favorite vacation was a cruise � he was a longtime member of both the Captain's Club and the Crown and Anchor Society. Joe made friends easily with his infectious smile and sweet disposition. His kindness and compassionate spirit could be seen from an early age. As a young man he volunteered with an ambulance corps; when his father had a stroke, he remained at home to help his mother care for him and assisted his father in maintaining income during that time. He showed that same devotion to his wife of 43 years and extended it to her family as well. He is survived by many loving friends and family members who miss him dearly.
A graveside service will be held Sunday, April 11 at 1 pm at Shalom Memorial Park with Shiva via Zoom.
Donations in Joe's memory can be made to Parkinson's Foundation https://www.parkinson.org/, The American Heart Association https://www.heart.org/, or The Crohns & Colitis Foundation https://www.crohnscolitisfoundation.org/.
