GOLDFARB, SORALIE (LEVIN): Passed away peacefully with her family by her side on December 2, 2017. She was 86 years old. Soralie was the wife for 62 years of Ed Goldfarb and loving mother to Jane Goldfarb and Larry (Ann Schnaper) Goldfarb, and adoring grandmother to Daniel, Jonathan and Aashma Goldfarb. Soralie was preceded in death by her beloved sister Reda (Leroy) Bloom and brother Marvin (Lenore Cohen) Sleisenger, M.D.  Also survived by many cherished nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews. Soralie was raised in Squirrel Hill and graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a B.F.A. from the School of Drama ‘53 and received a Masters in Deaf Education from the University of Pittsburgh ’65. She was a devoted teacher at the Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf and the Pittsburgh Public Schools for 38 years. Along with teaching and raising a family, Soralie pursued her love for acting for many years with leading roles at the Pittsburgh Playhouse. She acted in just about every theater company in the Pittsburgh area including the Odd Chair, Little Lake, and White Barn theaters. She also produced and directed productions for the Jewish Community Center Theater. An animal lover, she volunteered at the Pittsburgh Zoo. In her later years she explored even another side of her creativity by painting landscapes. She and her husband, Ed, enjoyed traveling abroad, including two recent trips to New Zealand to visit their grandchildren, one while recovering from recent surgery. Services at Ralph Schugar Chapel, Inc., 5509 Centre Avenue, Shadyside on Sunday, December 10, 2017 at 1 PM. Visitation one hour prior to services (12 Noon - 1 PM). Interment Beth Abraham Cemetery.
