Harriette Gold Leff

LEFF: Harriette Gold Leff, age 79, on Tuesday, June 8, 2021. Harriette is survived by her loving husband of 59 years and high school sweetheart, Henry (Hank) Leff; two daughters, Jacqueline (Howard) Shear and Michelle (Eric) Levin; five grandchildren, Margo (Justin) Fischgrund, Bradley Shear, and Marni, Kayla and Jordan Levin; sister-in law, Susan (Edwin) Balis; niece Margie (Paul) Schlesinger; and nephew Kevin (Amy) Segal. She is the granddaughter of the late Minnie and Abe Shapiro; daughter of the late Marcella and Bernard Gold; and sister of the late David Gold.
A devoted wife, mother and nana, Harriette was a Pittsburgh resident for all her life, and she adored spending time with family. A proud grandmother of triplets, Harriette moved in with her daughter Michelle for five months after she gave birth in 1999 and devoted all of her energy toward fostering a comfortable, loving home for her grandchildren and the new parents. More recently, in 2019, Harriette beamed as she walked down the aisle during the wedding of her first granddaughter, Margo, at Rodef Shalom Congregation. Her family will sorely miss her sunny, endearing disposition and positive energy. Harriette never failed to keep up with current events and entertainment news, and she found joy in following the latest fashion and beauty trends.
Graveside services and interment took place at Homestead Hebrew Cemetery. The family asks that donations be made to the JFCS Squirrel Hill Food Pantry.
