Dear Sheldon and Stephen and familes I want to extend my heartfelt sympathies on the loss of your Mom , a true Matriarch . This is the end of an era , and now the family is complete in heaven and everyone is reunited . I was with Auntie Rita in Toronto a few days before she passed and we were talking about Auntie Netty. She lived a long life and they say that the longer you have them the harder it is to say good bye.

Dear Sheldon and Stephen and family,I was saddened to hear of the passing of your very dear and wonderful mother! I remember the closeness of our years in Chomedy. Her door was always open to my mother and I, and of course you will stay for supper. I loved all her delicious baking!!A memory ,which stays in my mind forever, is that she hemmed all my nightgowns before I got married.She was truly kind and generous to everyone. I could go on and on, because her goodness is legendary and everyone who knew her agrees.She lived a long life of giving and virtue. On behalf of my mother, may her memory be a blessing. Love, Reisa

Dear Sheldon, Stephen and extended family, We were very sorry to hear that Nettie had passed away. She was a big part of my mother's (Helen Yegendorf) life, and then my sister Linda. I would see her when I was visiting Montreal for any occasion, she was always a staple at the dinner table for Shabbat dinner or any special occasion. She was a delight to be around. May the love you have carry you forward with all your beautiful memories. Beverly and Chuck Zitner

To the Bernofsky Family on the Passing of your Special Mom, Nettie. I knew Nettie when we were both at the home of the Late Linda and Shlomo, for wonderful Shabbas Dinners. Oh such delicious food. Your Mom was a spark of delight at the Dinner Table and yes, she would bring her home baked cakes, which were so delicious. After dinner and desserts were over, I would take your Mom back home and always helped her out of the car to make sure she was ok going up the stairs, and watched her til she entered her home. Please accept my condolences and may her sweet memories stay close to your hearts. Sincerely, Sandi

To the entire Bernofsky family, We were so saddened to learn that Nettie had passed away. She was like family to us, for so many years. My grandmother‘s best friend for decades, she was a staple at all of our family celebrations. After my grandmother passed away in 2006, Nettie became like a surrogate mother and grandmother to all of us. She was at my parents Shabbat table every week for years, and my children came to know and love her. We shared so many laughs, and we have incredible memories of her. Our favourite was playing “broken telephone” after the dinner dishes were cleared. She and my father would often whisper something incorrect, on purpose, to make the kids laugh. And they always did. The kids loved sharing these moments with her. We all did, too. She was a true lady, with such good graces. Always well put together, never showing up empty handed. She had a great sense of humour and despite her small stature, she had a big and very loving way about her, and always enjoyed kibbitzing with us all. Dinner was always sweeter when she was there, especially if she brought some of her home-baked goods. To this day, we still refer to “Nettie‘s apple cake“ as her signature dessert dish. We were lucky to have spent so many years with her as “part of our family”. We have missed that for quite some time now, and we know that the last few years had not been easy for Nettie. Chances are that right now she is reunited with all of those that she loved and missed, maybe even having a game of Liverpool with my mother and grandparents. We know that her passing leaves a void for all of her family - she loved and was proud of you all and spoke about you, often. May you all be comforted by beautiful memories of her. She was truly one of the greats. Baruch Dayan Ha’emet. Love Maia, Mark, Corey and Samuel Eiley

Stephanie & Roslyn Brown - 10 days ago

We were both ever so saddened to hear of Nettie's passing - and that she was the last of very spirited Portner clan. Hopefully we all carry a spark of their indomitable spirit in our own blood. I certainly remember growing up in Chomedey and have the fondest memories of visiting her, Benny and Leah regularly. May her memory be a blessing to you all.

Rosalind Warhaft - 10 days ago

David Apelbaum - 10 days ago

Dear Sheldon, Stephen & extended Families: I was very saddened to see on Paperman’s web site that your belted mom passed away yesterday. No matter how old a mother is, it’s difficult to accept her passing. I used to call her from time to time, usually spoke to Cynthia, who would put her on for a short chat. I last called on March 7th, to wish he a Happy Birthday but couldn’t get through. May her memory be for an everlasting blessing for her mishpacha & may her soul repose in Gan Eden. Amen! BDE Sadly, David
