Lina Tovshteyn, a longtime Crown Heights resident, known for her hospitality and warmth, passed away from complications of COVID a week after her husband’s passing.
With great sadness we inform of the passing of Lina Tovshteyn at the age of 78 from complications of COVID19.
Her sons, Chaim and Eli, just stood up from Shiva today for their father Motl Tovshteyn. Both contracted COVID at the same time.
She is also survived by 9 grandchildren.
Lina was well known and admired in Crown Heights for her hospitality she provided to Russian speaking bochrim and Shluchim and the love she gave while working in Tannersville summer camp and babysitting jobs.
She was always happy with her simple lifestyle and kept saying that she emigrated from Soviet Union only for her sons futures.
