Dal Elisabeth Goldstein

GOLDSTEIN: Dal Elisabeth Goldstein, age 82, of Mt. Lebanon and Carnegie, Pennsylvania, died on Friday, Oct. 22, 2021. Dal is the beloved mother of Philip Goldstein, Sarah Goldstein, Rachel Amdur (Brett) and Laura Leedham (Matthew), and beloved grandmother “Gramma” of Jeremy Amdur and Haley Amdur. The family sends special thanks and love to Dal’s many caregivers. Dal loved children and Judaism and bringing enthusiasm and happiness to anyone she possibly could. She would cross any sea and climb any mountain twice to make sure that Passover Seder was a high point of every year. She was an organizer of groups and committees. The joy of her life was raising four Jewish kids and welcoming their friends. She always knew how to lead, participate, or get out of the way, so the kids would learn and have fun. She especially loved seeing people learn and grow together. Her ultimate joy was loving two wonderful grandchildren. Dal is a 50-year-plus member of Temple Emanuel of South Hills. She was a president of B’nai B’rith and of Temple Emanuel Sisterhood and she was a Temple Emanuel board member. She was a businesswoman and real estate professional who loved connecting people and homes around the region and she made many treasured friends among her clients and colleagues. Dal was a Cub Scouts den mother, a Girl Scout leader for many years, and a Temple youth group advisor. Dal was a genius of imagination and adventure and responsible scouting from her own youth and she knew just how to pass it along to kids. There are dozens, maybe hundreds, of young women in their 50s today whose sense of being in the world got an early boost directly from Dal. Dal loved gardening, cooking, writing clever personalized poems, her generations of cats, putting on kids’ birthday parties, and making losing a tooth into a treasure hunt instead of just finding something under your pillow. Services and interment were private.
