Guest Book & Memories
February 12th, 2019
I want to express my sincere and deepest condolences to the entire family. I am so sorry for your loss.
I have the best memories of Blanche and Irving Blumenthal from growing up in Oak Park.
They were dear friends of my parents, Harold and Marilyn. Blanche was always so kind to me.
She always made me feel special and loved.
She was such a vibrant and vivacious woman! The Blumenthals were at my wedding and all other important occasions.
The fondest memory was when I gave birth to my son David, who has Down syndrome. Blanche drove all the way up to Deerfield to bring me a baby gift and to see us. NONE of my parents' other friends took the time to do something so nice at such a tough time in my life.
She will always have a special place in my heart.
May her memory be for a blessing!
All my love,
Betty Schaffner Korey

I did not know Mrs. Blumenthal but her husband and her son were and is my doctor for many years. Dr. Irving became my Doctor in early '60's, prior to January1963, when he helped deliver my second son January 13th, 1963 and continued to be our family doctor until he retired, by then my sons were adults, doctor Irving was a very kind man and with a good sense of humor, his son Lewis then became my doctor, now over 30 years; a wonderful family, doctor Lewis would keep me up to date, sharing stories of the fishing trips he enjoyed with his Dad, I always felt comforted to be in good hands after immigrating from Scotland in 1961.
My condolences, doctor Lewis, and to the rest of your family, may your mother rest in peace along side your Dad doctor Irving, I have some very fond memories.
