Beverly Gelb Klein passed away peacefully on Tuesday, July 20, at her home in Manalapan, NJ. She was preceded in death by her husband, the late Jerome Klein.
Bev lived most of her life in Scranton, the daughter of the late Morris and Mae Cohn Gelb. Bev was a quiet person, a lover of family, and a loving and loyal friend. She enjoyed reading, playing Scrabble, cooking and baking, and helping others solve their problems. She took that task very seriously. She was a member of Temple Israel and an active board member of the Jewish Family Service.
Surviving are her daughters, Carol Klein Kaplan of Philadelphia, and Judy Klein Premselaar and husband Louis of Rumson, NJ; sister Sondra Myers and husband Atty. Morey of Scranton; grandchildren Scott Kaplan and wife Eva, and Sara Kaplan, all of Philadelphia, and Rachel Presser and husband Larry of Fairhaven, NJ, and Marc Premselaar of Ocean Port, NJ. She doted on her beloved great-granddaughters, Zoe, Emma and Jordie Kaplan, and Maya and Carly Presser.
A private graveside service will be held in the Dalton Jewish Cemetery.
