April 19, 1931 - May 8, 2020
Doris Ginsberg St. Louis Park 4-19-1931 to 5-8-2020 Our beloved Mother, Grandma, Great Grandma and Caregiver to the community passed away suddenly Friday, May 8th. She is survived by sons, David (Shannon), Gordon (Kate) and Joel (Sara) Ginsberg; grandsons, Andrew (Anda), Todd (April), Adam, Charlie (Caitlin), Sam and Josh Ginsberg; great grandkids, Ethan, Eli and Tirin Ginsberg and Juliet Corona; and brothers-in-law, Seymour Ginsberg (Sandra) and Leon Ginsberg. She was preceded in death by parents, Maida and Lou Bernstein; husband, Ted; sister, Renee Kahn (Gene); brother-in-law, Milton Ginsberg (Marian); daughter-in-law, Cindy Ginsberg and granddaughter-in-law, Emily Ginsberg. Mom was the glue that bound our family together. She was the leader of an exclusive Men’s club…16 Ginsberg men (and their families) spanning four generations. She was our stalwart, our provider, our leader and our biggest fan and supporter. She was smart, dashing, beautiful, adventurous, tough, fair and grounded. Mom was also very athletic and was an accomplished tennis player. As she often reminded us “You know I was a tennis champion!” And she had the trophies to back it up. Mom was the penultimate caregiver, serving nearly 30 years as an RN in the Emergency Room and Mental Health units at Abbott Northwestern hospital. If Doris Ginsberg was on your care team, at your bedside - you were in the hands of a gifted and experienced professional. Mom may have even created the first unofficial Nurses Hotline using our home phone on Decatur Lane to answer your questions or lend an ear no matter the time of day or night. Mom loved her family (and friends) more than all. We were her pride and joy. Although she enjoyed travel, her career, sports and the great outdoors, it was our family holidays, birthdays and get togethers that brought her the most joy. Mom used these occasions to remind us of our family history and to dispense her wisdoms both subtly and not. She was our guardian, teacher, mentor, moral compass, voice of reason and safe harbor when we needed shelter from our storms. We will forever remember the dashing, skiing, tennis-playing nurse with the heart of gold, quick wit, tough love, amazing intellect and the boundless love and compassion. She has set a standard and an example for us to cherish and follow. She has served our family and her community - selflessly and with amazing grace. We are so lucky that now - in our time of greatest need - we have her example of strength, courage and love to stand on and forge ahead as we know she would want us to. Public Zoom service Link is https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85836556503 will be held Monday, May 11th at 2PM with a public Zoom (same link as service) Shiva Monday night at 6:30.
