Mildred J. “Millie” Bernstein
July 22, 1926 – November 4, 2021
Mildred “Millie” Bernstein of Omaha, Nebraska, passed away on November 4, 2021, at age 95, surrounded by her loving family.
Millie was preceded in death by her husband of 70 years Harold E. Bernstein; parents, Herman and Bettie Zuber. She is survived by daughter, Kay Goldstein (Bruce) of Minnetonka, Minnesota; son, John Bernstein (Nancy) of Greenwood Village, Colorado; grandchildren: Aaron Goldstein (Michelle), Danny Goldstein (Blair), Max Bernstein and Madeleine Bernstein; great-grandchildren: Jordyn, Maya, Ava, Eliana, and Bodie; brothers, Mort Zuber and Robert Zuber (Beverly); and many loving nieces and nephews.
Millie was born and grew up in Hastings, Nebraska, and attended the University of Nebraska, where she met her husband. Upon her marriage in 1947, she and Harold lived in Council Bluffs, Iowa, where they raised their family. As empty nesters, Millie and Harold moved to Omaha. For many years, Millie worked side by side with Harold in their business. In retirement, she enjoyed traveling, spending time with her expanding family, playing Maj Jong with her many life-long friends, and working out at the Jewish Community Center. Millie’s inner strength and fortitude were admired by all who knew and loved her.
We are forever grateful to the nurses and staff in the southwest neighborhood of the Rose Blumkin Jewish Home, who every day for the past year demonstrated much devotion, dedication, caring and love for Millie.
Memorial Service will be on Sunday, November 7, 2021, at 1:30 p.m. at Temple Israel. Contributions in Millie’s memory may be made to the Rose Blumkin Jewish Home, 323 South 132nd Street, Omaha, NE 68154 or a charity of your choice.
