      FYI.... a long standing member of VSSJ, Steve Faris, recently lost his mom....

      Faris Edith (nee Kohn), passed away peacefully at her home, surrounded by her loving
      family on Sept. 18th. She was born in Berlin, Germany and escaped the terror of Nazi
      Germany at the age of 11. She lived for 11 years in Shanghai, China. There she met her
      husband James, who was serving in the US army. She came to the United States in 1948
      where she raised her family. She is survived by her loving husband of 60 years, James
      Faris of Atco, son Steven Faris of Atco, daughter Janet Faris of EHT and daughter Holly
      Faris of Sicklerville. She is also survived by her sister, Betty Grebenschikoff of Ventnor,
      numerous nieces and nephews, seven grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. She
      is predeceased by her son David Faris and her parents, Max and Olga Kohn. Edith was a
      true patriot who loved her adoptive country. She was a long standing member of Temple
      Beth El in Hammonton. Although many did not know her by name, she was recognized as
      the Atco-Ivystone Bike Lady. Her hobbies included knitting, crocheting, gardening, bike
      riding and long walks on the beach. She was very active and loved the outdoors. She
      enjoyed preparing meals for her family and having them around her on special occasions.
