Obituary of Luba Shelichach
On October 16, 2015 the world was made a little sadder at the passing of Luba Shelichach. A long-time resident of Totowa, NJ, she expired after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s.
Luba died at 90 years of age and is survived by her son, Arcadio; his wife, Donna, her grandson, Michael and too many relatives to mention here. She leaves family in Venezuela as well as in her birthplace, the Ukraine.
Luba survived the oppression of Stalin and the horror of Nazi occupation. As a WWII refugee, she migrated to Venezuela to start a new life and eventually came to the US in 1959. Here she and her husband, Szangeri, who passed away some time ago, made a home and raised a family. She was a true Christian; in the sense that she lived her faith and was a decent, caring, loving individual to all she met during her life’s journey. A great friend. A devoted wife. A wonderful mother and grandmother. We shall miss you and always keep you in our hearts!
