June 5, 1927 - May 6, 2021
Mrs. Mindel Sheynin (nee Hager), a resident of Minneapolis, Minnesota, has passed away on Thursday, 24 Iyar, 5781, May 6, 2021. She was 93. Born in Galicia, Poland in 1927. She was born into the Vizhnitz-Kosov dynasty to Miriam and Berel Hager. Her parents narrowly escaped the Nazis by a few hours by horse and buggy through bullets and fighting until finally arriving in Russia and settled in a small shtetl called Poleskoya. They had to learn how to live under Stalin's Communist Regime, living under the shadow of constant fear of being caught for simple Jewish practices such as gathering for minyan, Pesach seders under ground, observing shabbos, etc. Hiding these traditions even from their own grandchildren out of fear of being caught. Mindel worked very hard her entire life and never took a back seat to rest. She was granted a visa to the USA at the age of 49. She learned English and spoke fluently, and was employed by a large computer company, and then went on to work at Lowen's Bakery on Kingston, Ave. She then moved to Minnesota to be near her grandchildren, and became an integral part of her daughter and son-in-law's Chabad house community. She was extremely sharp, witty, and bright. Always with a smil, upbeat energy, and pleasant greeting. She made friends with everyone she cam across. She was a very independent and strong woman, even driving herself until a few weeks before her passing. She was a beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and dear friend of many. Her strength, perseverance, and survival is truly exceptional. She will be greatly missed. She is survived by her daughter, Mrs. Leah Giter-Roberts, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Levaya was held on Friday, May 7 at Montefiore Cemetery in New York.
