generation of community giants,

indoctrinated cultural sense.
From cub reporter to women's
editor of the University of Michi-
gan Daily, from volunteering and
professional involvements in
major causes to earning the high-
est recognition as a Fred M. But-

among the high marks that gave
leadership roles to Golda Krolik,
who died last Saturday at the age

In loving memory of

Her first contact with organized
philanthropy occurred when she
and the other members of the
Cheerful Volunteers (Fresers), all
age 10, were permitted to play
with (not feed or lift) the children
in the free nursery which her
father had established in the
Hannah Schloss Building.
Three times she entered and
dropped out of the University of
Michigan due to illness in her
home. During one of these stays
she became the first woman re-
porter for the Michigan Daily.
During World War I she worked
for the Family Service Division of
the American Red Cross as well as
earning money to purchase a war
bond by being the society editor of
the Detroit Jewish Chronicle.
Following the war, the United
Jewish Charities established a
free clinic in the Hannah Schloss
Building. She worked for it and
followed it to the Wineman-
donated building at Oakland and
Holbrook, known as the North
End Clinic.
During the same period she was
a Sunday school teacher at Tem-
ple Beth El where she met and in
1923 married Leopold Mayer.

A Message Of Love

Like the never ending changing of the seasons and the never
ending shifting of the desert sands there is also the never ending
love that a daughter has for her mother. So it is now at this time of
the year that our thoughts go once again to our mother who is not
with us in body but who even in death is never really far apart from
us. She is part of us in our thoughts, heart and soul. She leaves to us
a legacy of love, strength, and courage. The courage to go on
without her. The love that she instilled in us for our husbands and
children. The strength to go on without her and her never ending
wisdom. The courage to face each day and know that there will
never be a phone call, never a voice to answer our questions or to
say I love you as only a mother can say. So to you our mother, Anne
F. Barron, who would have been 65 on May 22, 1985, we honor you
with this our legacy of love.
From your daughters Sandy and Arleen and your loving
grandchildren Charles, Allyson, Gershon, Melissa and David.
