Service: Private Graveside Service

directions link

Louise Nathan passed away from Covid on March 4th at BayState Medical Center.  She was 100 years old.

Louise was born on September 29, 1920 and grew up in Springfield.  She graduated from Classical High School and attended Syracuse University, which she left after two years to marry Jerry Nathan, her high school sweetheart.  Thirty years later, she graduated magna cum laude from the University of Connecticut.

Jerry and Louise were devoted to each other over the course of their 74-year marriage.  Manchester, Connecticut was their home for 55 years, where they contributed their creative and leadership talents to various community organizations and to their synagogue, Temple Beth Shalom.  After Jerry’s retirement, they traveled extensively, including support of the Refuseniks in the former Soviet Union, trips to China and many other interesting, well-researched destinations.  Jerry and Louise moved to Glenmeadow in Longmeadow 13 years ago, where they enjoyed many new friendships.  Jerry passed away in April, 2016.

Louise enjoyed a sharp mind, a remarkable memory and wonderful sense of humor throughout her 100 years. She was an avid reader of history and had a special interest in the extraordinary stories of survival and heroism surrounding the holocaust.  She was the principal source of information about family history from both sides of the genealogical tree.  Her memory of multigenerational relationships, as well as family legends, was remarkable.  She was the family archivist and made it her mission to put together numerous albums of photos accompanied by her hand written notes identifying generations of ancestors for future generations.

Louise was beloved by family and friends.  She will be missed by her sister, Doris Feinstein of Framingham, Ma.  She leaves her sons, Larry Nathan and his wife Nancy of Longmeadow, and Jim Nathan and his wife Hedy of Bolton, Ct.  Louise reveled in the growth and accomplishments of her grandchildren – David Nathan and his wife Marie of Longmeadow; and Debbie (Nathan) Jackson and her husband Marty of Holden, Ma.; Rebecca (Nathan) Ladabouche and her husband Kevin of Hebron, Ct.; and Jessica (Nathan) Stasiowski and her husband Jeff of Tolland, Ct.

Louise found special joy in visits from, and entertaining stories about, her 8 great grandchildren, who range in age from 25 years to 7 months.  Justin and Samantha Nathan; Ryan, Talia and Lexi Jackson; Ellie and Reese Ladabouche; and Juliette Stasiowski.  They will forever treasure their memories of their Bubbie.

A family graveside service will be held at Temple Beth Shalom, B’nai Israel memorial park in Manchester, Ct.  Suggested donations in Louise’s memory may be made to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C.

Mrs. Lenore Kutlow Tobin

Beth David Cemetery, Elmont, NY

Lenore Kutlow Tobin passed away peacefully on February 28th, 2021 after a seven year battle with vascular dementia. Her entire extended family is mourning her loss. She was 84 years old.

Born in New York City and reared in Miami Beach before returning to New York, Lenore was a great athlete during her summer camp and Calhoun High School years. She graduated from Barnard College in 1957.

Lenore loved singing and sharing her camp songs her whole life as well as playing the ukulele and square and line dancing. Lenore was rarely seen without her harmonica nearby and was always quick to play her favorite, “Oh Susannah” to a singing and clapping audience.

Throughout her life, Lenore was passionate about needlecrafts–knitting, sewing, needlepoint, and crewel embroidery to name a few.  Each of her grandchildren has their own quilt, handcrafted with love during late, late nights.

Lenore was an active community member during her 50 years in Westhampton Beach, New York. When she was raising her children, she volunteered in the schools, led arts and crafts summer events, and organized adult education. Lenore was an involved real estate broker in the village for many years and cherished her professional friendships. Yet nothing made her happier than a crowded house and an overflowing table of family and friends.

Lenore, with her deep red hair, would love to be remembered as “Lenore doing Lenore,” not doing what mainstream friends or relatives did.  She was proud of standing alone if she needed to and always fought to make any wrongs right.

Lenore is survived by her three children, Jocelyn Tobin (Stu Weissman) of Longmeadow, MA, Alison Tobin of Denver, CO, and Michael Tobin (Danna Greenberg) of Wellesley, MA, and her 7 grandchildren, Nathan, Benjamin, Max, Gillian, Micaela, Jonah and Seth. She is also survived by her brother, Herb Kutlow (Dee) of Cardiff, CA and sister, Rosalee Kutlow Lubell of Tustin, CA, and Kutlow cousins always in her heart.

Funeral services were private. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Alzheimer’s Association for further study and support.

Mr. Harvey W. Gloth

B'nai Jacob Cemetery

Harvey William Gloth was born in Springfield, Massachusetts on August 22, 1934 to very strong, loving and devoted parents Louis and Helen Gloth. Raised in Springfield as the youngest of three children, he was predeceased by his sisters Adele Kaufman of Florida and Phyllis Feldman of Longmeadow. He leaves behind a multitude of nieces and nephews on both sides of his and his devoted wife’s family, as well as great nieces and nephews.

As a young man, Harvey attended Springfield College and received his Bachelors of Science in Sociology. His early years of work found him at the Boys & Girls Club of Springfield, where he changed the momentum of life for many local youth. Harvey joined the United States Army and served until 1956, when he was honorably discharged after time stationed in Italy, Germany and France. His love of photography, music, and old war movies were ever present throughout his life. He retained pictures of the time he spent in the service up until just months ago, and enjoyed printing out pictures on the computer of his beloved grandchildren. His love for playing the trumpet, jazz and big band music was well-known among his family and friends, as was his devotion to all he knew.

Later years in life, would find him in the much-loved world of food and the restaurant business. It is here where he also shined with his famous “corned beef” and endless love of a good meal and friends. From his little Eatery of Harvey G’s to his 280 Café, he was always in his element behind the grill. His time working behind the counter slicing his corned beef at Gus and Paul’s in Springfield was a time treasured not just by him, but all who knew him, as lines would be out the door for a sandwich.

In 1967 he married the love of his life, Carol Allen Gloth, who he leaves gracefully behind, as well as his son Lawrence J. Gloth of Portland, Oregon along with his loving daughter-in-law Danielle Beaudry Gloth, their two children, his grandchildren, Beatrix and Simon Gloth. He leaves also his daughter Joey Ann Gebo of Belchertown, Massachusetts and her children, his grandchildren, Kayla, Tori, Alyssa, and Thomas. His undying devotion as both a father and a husband are his most prideful and boastful accomplishments. Harvey was not just a man of character, intention and worth, he was a man of purpose and great pride; his life touched all who knew him. If Harvey knew you or loved you, you would be most certain to receive a plate of his most famous corned beef, and if you ever had the pleasure of tasting that goodness, you know well that Harvey William Gloth was just one of a kind! Services for Harvey will be shared via Zoom Sunday evening at 7:00 p.m. Funeral services will be held Monday at B’Nai Jacob Cemetery in a private ceremony, but will also be broadcasted via Zoom for family and friends to share the time as well. Donations for Harvey may be made to the American Heart Association or to the JGS Lifecare senior center in Longmeadow.
