My late husband, Jerry Pomerantz and I were neighbors at Cannon Forge. We moved there in January , 1993 and stayed 5 years until we moved to Florida. Your mother and I had wonderful conversations and fun times with our husbands and was such a warm and sweet woman.

It was with great sadness that my wife and I learned of Selma’s passing. A number of years ago as founders of the Bedford Community Table/Pantry my wife and I had the pleasure of working with Selma on a number of occasions when preparing the Thursday night community dinner. We always looked forward to our times together as Selma’s sense of humor made a volunteer job enjoyable. I, Peter, will always remember the night we made homemade pizza and tried our hardest to throw the dough into the air. Whenever we talk about early days in the pantry we inevitably think of Selma with fondness.
