Margaret N. Shlossberg, 92

Haverhill — Margaret N. (Brodsky) Shlossberg, 92, of Haverhill, passed away on Thursday, September 12, at Penacook Place.

She was born in Lawrence on January 6, 1921, and was the daughter of the late Arthur and Lena (Gorbein) Brodsky.

Margaret was educated in the Lawrence schools, and for some time was a professional pianist. After her husband, Dr. Frank R. Shlossberg, passed away, she attended Harvard University extension, where she earned her bachelor's degree in 1972, and was able to nurture her passion for Italian and Portuguese history and culture. Margaret then served as a substitute teacher in the Haverhill schools.

She is survived by her daughter, Amy J. and her husband, Michael L. Wolfram of Santa Rosa Valley, Calif.; grandsons, Matthew T. Wolfram of Los Angeles, and Bradford A. Wolfram of Seattle; and several nieces and nephews. She was also the sister of the late Harry Brodsky and Rose Brodsky.

Margaret’s family wishes to express heartfelt thanks to the wonderful caregivers at Penacook Place and Merrimack Valley Hospital, as well as to all those at Mission Towers, who watched over her and enjoyed the music of the “piano lady.”
