Shulamith Dick – Obituary


Shulamith Dick was born in Chorostkow, a shtetl in Poland in 1924. Her father, Shlomo  was an ordained rabbi, but worked in the family business once he married her mother, Miriam. Her mother’s family were a well-established and well-respected family in Chorostkow, but as Zionists they yearned to live in the land of Israel. In 1935, at the age of 11, Shulamith moved to Israel with her family and lived in Jerusalem. Having lost both her parents by the age of 12, Shulamith was cared for by her older sisters and later lived for a time on a kibbutz. Shulamith returned to Jerusalem to study at a Teacher’s Seminary. Her love of children led her to become a kindergarten teacher.

In 1944, Shulamith met her future husband Carl (Munio) Dick, a Holocaust survivor from the same shtetl where she was born. They married in Jerusalem in1947, in the midst of the War of Independence in Israel. Their only child, Miriam, was born several years later in Haifa.

In 1952, the Dick family immigrated to the United States, where Carl had an uncle and cousins he had never met before. The Dick family lived in the U.S. until 1961, when Shulamith wanted to return to Israel to be nearer her own family. In 1977, they returned to the U.S. due to a family tragedy in Israel. They family has stayed in the U.S. since then.

Throughout the years, Shulamith worked as a Hebrew kindergarten teacher both in Israel and in the U.S. Many Jewish children benefitted from her knowledge of and love of Judaism and Israel. One of those children (now grown up) remembered her fondly at her funeral.

Shulamith was a generous lady who enjoyed giving to others. She knitted a sweater for almost every baby she heard was born. She had an artistic nature and could create art even out of little scraps of paper she found. Her home was adorned with her paintings and needlework.

Shulamith passed away on August 18, 2023 at the age of 98. When her daughter Miriam is asked what her mother’s secret was to long life, Miriam answers it was her mother’s love of life – in Hebrew “Simchat Chaim.” Shulamith brought happiness with her wherever she went. She was also named after her grandmother, Sluva, who lived until her late nineties at the beginning of the 20th century, when people lived shorter lives.

Shulamith is predeceased by her husband Carl. She is survived by her loving daughter, Miriam, and her nephews in Israel and in the U.S. Yihi Zichrah Baruch.
