Edith Schreiber Fine
(d. 11 July 2014)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   I was saddened this Tuesday morning to read of the death of Edith Schreiber Fine, mother of     Carla Fine Cripps ('65) of South Australia and Elissa Fine Glatstein ('68) of TN, on Friday, July 11, 2014 at the age of 93.

   I remember Mrs. Fine so well from the days when our two families lived in the Stuart Homes Apartments.  She, like her daughters, always seemed to be possessed of such high energy, a veritable fire of purpose; it made a very deep impression on me as a young child.

  May her memory be for a blessing always.

  NEWPORT NEWS - Edith S. Fine, widow of Herbert Fine, died July 11 in Memphis TN at the age of 93.

Born in the Bronx, NY she was raised with her 2 brothers by her parents Max and Gussie Gutterman Schreiber but moved to Newport News in 1955 with her husband and 2 daughters where she was a member of Adath Jeshuran Synagogue.

She helped her husband with his businesses Lackey and Yorktown Department stores and cherished the memories of their working years in both of those towns.

She was also devoted to helping Yorktown receive the degree of recognition it deserved as the site of the close of the Revolutionary War.

Most of her father's family died in the holocaust, but in addition to her brothers and sisters in law, she was surrounded in her early life by the love of her mother's 5 sisters, her grandparents and many cousins.

She is survived by her daughters Carla F. Cripps (Ray) of Adelaide, Australia and Elissa Fine Glatstein (Howard) of Memphis, TN, granddaughter Maren Magid (David) of West Orange, NJ, great granddaughters Arielle and Clara, brother Herbert Schreiber (Frances) of Queens, NY and Florida, and her son in law Richard Harrison of Raleigh, NC.

There will be a graveside service on July 15 at 10:30 am at the Hebrew Cemetery. Memorials may be made to the Margolin Hebrew Academy, White Station Road in Memphis, TN or to the . Peninsula Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.

I have very fond memories of Mrs. Fine when they lived in the 1300th block of 22nd Street in Newport News, VA. I was the oldest daughter in the "Kelly kids" family and played with Carla and "Lisa"; we shared many fun times together while we all lived on 22nd Street. Mrs. Fine was a wonderful person and a good friend of my mom, Helen Kelly

Mr. and Mrs. Fine were such a part of "downtown" Yorktown for many years. Sincere condolences to their family.

I remember first meeting Mr. and Mrs. Fine when I was a child and shopped occasionally at their store. My best memories, however, come from my time in high school when I worked next door to them at the old Rich's convenience store. Mrs. Fine, especially, would come over to visit with us on slow days. I consider myself fortunate to have known her during those "good old" days of the old Yorktown. So many of the folks from that day like Mr. and Mrs. Fine, Mrs. Howell, the Hockadays, and others made Yorktown a special place.

   Our sincerest sympathies are extended to Carla and Alissa and their family and friends at this difficult time.


   From Carla Fine Cripps ('65) of South Australia - 07/22/14:

Hi, Carol,

Thank you so much for running Momís obituary on the NNHS65 site, and for your personal kind words about her. Itís been good to hear from people who remember her and Dad from the old days. Ninety-three was a good age, and sadly, she had been very, very sick for a long time, so her ultimately gentle passing seemed like a release.

   Thank you, Carla.  Again you have my deepest condolences.


   Y'all take good care of each other!  TYPHOONS FOREVER!  We'll Always Have Buckroe!

                          Love to all, Carol
