B. Terri Trieger, resident of Larchmont, NY passed away on October 24, 2009. She died of lung cancer.
Terri was the wife of Dr. Norman Trieger and mother of Barrie and Simon Jacob of West Orange, NJ; Michael and Rebecca Trieger of Springfield IL; Joel Trieger of Mamaroneck, NY; and Eva Trieger of Solana Beach, CA. Terri will be remembered by her thirteen grandchildren, their spouses, and her eleven great grandchildren. Terri is survived by two brothers and their wives, Leland and Phyllis Beck of Seaford NY, and Charles and Lorna Beck of Winston Salem, NC.
Mrs. Trieger, a graduate of Brandeis University, volunteered as a remedial reading teacher, before studying to become a docent at the Jewish Museum in New York City, where she worked for almost 40 years. An active member of Dorot, Terri taught classes for the homebound via telephone, and created a community for them as they learned about the world and each other. Mrs. Trieger served as curator for the Koslowe Gallery at the Westchester Jewish Center, where she and Norman have been active members for over thirty years.
Mrs. Trieger’s interests were endless. She was a voracious reader and a seasoned traveler who celebrated life more fully than most. She delighted in the company of friends and family, and left a huge impression on so many acquaintances who have become her family. Charitable contributions in her memory may be made to the Koslowe Gallery at the Westchester Jewish Center in Mamaroneck, NY. For more information, Zion Memorial Chapel 914-3811809.
