EDITH KRAMER TWERSKY: Cherished wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, and friend, passed away on February 27, 2022 in Hillsborough, NC. She was 92 years old. She was born in October 1929, just weeks before the beginning of the depression. Edie was predeceased by her husband, Albert, who was the love of her life. They were “foodies” before anyone thought of the word “foody,” and for years enjoyed elaborate dinner parties with their close friends before that was a thing. Edie was known to all of her friends and family as an excellent cook, and had a small bakery with her sister Betty, making their famous Mississippi Mud cakes and Dacquoise for restaurants in Pittsburgh. She passed on not only her love of good food, but her cooking skills to her sons, as well as to the little ones in the family, especially Charlie Sohinki and Aaron Fisher. She was a master Mah Jongg player and enjoyed many afternoon's playing with her friends. Edie was predeceased by her parents, Harry and Fanny Kramer, and her in-laws, Jack and Rebecca Twersky. She was the last of the Kramer girls, having been predeceased by her sisters and BFFs, Betty Ainsman and Shirley Levine, as well as her brother Marvin. She was also predeceased by her loving companion of her last few years, Edgar Landerman. Family was everything to Edie, and she is survived by her sons and daughters in law, Jack and Renee Twersky, and Jeffrey and Debra Twersky, her sister-in-law and brother-in-law Shirley and Robert Zimmerman, her grandchildren, Emma Twersky and Gabriel Young, her nieces and nephews, and their spouses, Leslie Ainsman, David and Meryl Ainsman, Debra and Jack Levin, Sue Brown, Richard and Elaine Levine, Rennell Zimmerman, John and Sherry Zimmerman, Dana Twersky and Ori Twersky, and their children, Laura and Lewis Sohinki, Molly and Mike Fisher, Jesse and Louise Ainsman, Lucy Ainsman and Oscar Medina, Barbara Kramer Weiner, Rennell Zimmerman, John and Sherry Zimmerman, and all of their children, who were so, so precious to her, and brought her so much joy. Services at Ralph Schugar Chapel, Inc., 5509 Centre Avenue, Shadyside on Thursday at 10 AM. NO Prior Visitation. Interment Homewood Cemetery. Contributions may be made to the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh, 2000 Technology Drive, Pittsburgh, PA 15219. www.schugar.com


Send Condolence

I am sorry for your loss. I have very fond memories of Betty’s (OBM) baking, but didn’t know her sister/partner. May her memory be a blessing

My deepest condolences to Jeffrey, Debra, Emma & family on the passing of your beloved mother and grandmother. Even though I only met her once, she always remembered me by name and helped introduce me to a relative of hers that initially cheered me on to get my degrees in clinical and community psychology. I will always remember her with gratitude. May the many wonderful memories you hold of your time with her be a blessing and inspiration.
