June 29, 1918 - March 18, 2021
We celebrate the long and healthy life of Ann Goldstein who was born June 29, 1918 in New York City. At 102, while holding her daughter’s hand, she peacefully left Earth from her home of the past 10 years, Emerald Park Retirement Center (EPR) in Hollywood, Florida. At EPR she renewed her life following the deaths of her parents, Nathan and Pauline Estomin, beloved husband of 47-years, Abe Goldstein, brothers Irving and Bernie Estomin, and best friends from her homes in Toms River, New Jersey and Pembroke Pines, Florida. She made new friends and especially enjoyed the music and interactive games provided by the EPR Center. EPR staff became her caring family; she was loved and adored. Ann looked forward to the frequent visits by her beloved surviving son, Stephen Goldstein of Fort Myers Florida and the month-long visits by her beloved surviving daughter, Marian Head of Kapaa Hawai’i. Ann went to public school in New York City and then secretarial trade school. She lived in a boarding house in Washington DC during WWII supporting the war effort (doing something “secret”), worked in the Empire State building when the plane crashed into it in 1945, was a highly-respected office manager for Prudential Insurance Company, and administrative assistant to the director of Ocean-Monmouth Legal Services, where she supervised more than ten people. She typed at an astronomical rate of speed to the great delight of her children who she helped with school assignments. She married the love of her life, Abe Goldstein, August 17, 1946. They loved raising their family on their Hilltop Farm in Toms River, New Jersey, down the road from her parents and brothers’ families. Ann and Abe fully enjoyed their cross-country car trips and visits to Las Vegas where Ann had fun playing video Keno and poker. At home she delighted in designing gardens where she grew beautiful flowers and vegetables in the ample spaces around her home and 20+-acre farm. She loved beauty, as evidenced by her home furnishings and attire. In June, 2018, daughter Marian and son Stephen, grandsons Michael Head and Eric Goldstein, nephews Mark Estomin and Ronnie Estomin and all of their spouses, as well as Ann’s first great-granddaughter Addison Reese Goldstein celebrated Ann’s 100th birthday at the Hard Rock Casino. Two of Ann’s devoted private aides, Phebe and Annette, also enjoyed celebrating with us. It is a day we will all remember for a long time. We will remember Ann as a loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt, wife, friend, and supporter, as she is laid to rest next to her husband Abe at a private ceremony attended by her son and daughter at Menorah Gardens on Sunday March 21, 2021.
