SALUSINSZKY, Ilma (nee Trattner on Feb. 9, 1910) Passed away peacefully in Oakville, Ontario, on March 13, 2012 at the respectable and enviable age of 102. Daughter of David and Gabriella Trattner, Ilma was born in Brasov, Romania, a Transylvanian city that was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire at the time. After marrying D r. E u g e n S a l u s i n s z k y ( w h o predeceased her in 1967), she became a professional aesthetician. Their life, together with their daughter, Dr. Marion SalusinszkySternbach (Mr. Otto Sternbach) was coloured by 20th century European history. As a family, they survived World War II and the subsequent occupation of Romania by the Soviet era communists, ultimately immigrating to Israel in 1960. In 1976, Ilma arrived in Canada and was devoted to family life with her grandsons Gil (Tracy) and Yaron (Katherine) Sternbach. She subsequently became the adoring great-grandmother of Carling, Steele, Talia, Zachary, Sarah, and Jake. Additional cherished surviving family members include her brother, Egon, sister-in-law, Lola, nephew, Eric, and his wife Rougena, all of whom reside in Israel. Her sister, Magda, died as an infant. Interment took place in Haifa, Israel, where Ilma was buried beside her husband, with whom she had a story-book marriage.
