Muriel S. Bromberg, 89, passed away Oct. 28, 2016.
Born in the Bronx, N.Y., Ms. Bromberg was among the first generation of her family to be born in the United States along with one of her brothers. Three older siblings were born in Poland and the family escaped before World War II. At the age of 21 in 1948, due to respiratory issues, Ms. Bromberg traveled alone by train to Tucson. Soon after, she met Howard Bromberg and they were married by Rabbi Marcus Breger at Congregation Anshei Israel, where she was active for many years. Ms. Bromberg was an accomplished artist and at the age of 50 earned an associate’s degree with honors from Pima Community College. She then ran the biology lab at the downtown campus until she retired at 65.
Survivors include her children, David (Daphne) Bromberg of New York, N.Y., Ellen Bromberg of Salt Lake City, Leslie Bromberg of Tucson, and Brian Bromberg of Los Angeles; and three grandchildren.
Ms. Bromberg donated her body to the University of Arizona Willed Body Program. There will be a memorial service in December.
