Esther Amateau Pergament

Great Aunt Esther

August 22, 1914 – October 20, 2014
“Born on the Island of Rhodes the youngest of nine children, she immigrated to America in 1929. Educated, talented, and beautiful, she met her husband of 43 years in New York. On the day they met, Harvey was asked by his brother, “What do you think of the Spanish woman?” His reply, “She doesn’t know the time of day, but I’m going to marry her.” They married in 1942 and moved to Los Angeles in 1945, where they set up their home, and then proceeded to travel the world.
She is known by her extended family and friends for her traditional Sephardic cooking and hospitality.”
 
Esther will be remembered with tremendous love and affection for the joy she brought our family.
