TWERSKY: Edith Kramer Twersky, cherished wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, and friend, passed away on Feb. 27, 2022, in Hillsborough, North Carolina. She was 92 years old. She was born in October 1929, just weeks before the beginning of the Depression. Edie was predeceased by her husband, Albert, who was the love of her life. They were “foodies” before anyone thought of the word “foodie,” and for years enjoyed elaborate dinner parties with their close friends before that was a thing. Edie was known to all of her friends and family as an excellent cook, and had a small bakery with her sister Betty, making their famous Mississippi mud cakes and dacquoise for restaurants in Pittsburgh. She passed on not only her love of good food, but her cooking skills to her sons, as well as to the little ones in the family, especially Charlie Sohinki and Aaron Fisher. She was a master mah-jongg player and enjoyed many afternoons playing with her friends. Edie was predeceased by her parents, Harry and Fanny Kramer, and her in-laws, Jack and Rebecca Twersky. She was the last of the Kramer girls, having been predeceased by her sisters and BFFs, Betty Ainsman and Shirley Levine, as well as her brother Marvin. She was also predeceased by her loving companion of her last few years, Edgar Landerman. Family was everything to Edie, and she is survived by her sons and daughters-in-law, Jack and Renee Twersky, and Jeffrey and Debra Twersky, her sister-in-law and brother-in-law Shirley and Robert Zimmerman, her grandchildren, Emma Twersky and Gabriel Young, her nieces and nephews, and their spouses, Leslie Ainsman, David and Meryl Ainsman, Debra and Jack Levin, Sue Brown, Richard and Elaine Levine, Rennell Zimmerman, John and Sherry Zimmerman, Dana Twersky and Ori Twersky, and their children, Laura and Lewis Sohinki, Molly and Mike Fisher, Jesse and Louise Ainsman, Lucy Ainsman and Oscar Medina, Barbara Kramer Weiner, Rennell Zimmerman, John and Sherry Zimmerman, and all of their children, who were so, so precious to her and brought her so much joy. Services were held at Ralph Schugar Chapel, Inc., 5509 Centre Avenue, Shadyside on Thursday, March 3, 2022, at 10 a.m. No prior visitation. Interment was at Homewood Cemetery.
