Nana Duben was known as
the "first voice heard" when
persons called the Yad Ezra
kosher food pantry office. Besides
being the Berkley-based group's
administrative assistant for eight
years, Mrs. Duben was also "the
most loving, giving, selfless person"
for her family, said daughter Sara
Wasser.
Mrs. Duben handled a variety of
tasks for Yad Ezra, a group that serv-
ices low-income Jews, including tak-
ing food orders, sending tributes,
providing information to callers and
coordinating volunteers.
Mrs. Duben, 59, of
Southfield, died unexpectedly
July 2, 2005, at Providence
Hospital, Southfield. She had a
variety of heart problems for
the past several years, said her
daughter.
She said that Mrs. Duben
took care of her parents, the
late Cantor Hyman and Ruth
Adler, for much of her adult
life. The Adlers lived with the
Dubens, Mrs. Duben being
their primary caregiver.
She gave up a potential career
as a music teacher to care for
her parents during their lengthy
illnesses. Before her parents
became ill, Mrs. Duben attend-
ed Wayne State University in
Detroit for two years, but
dropped out to care for them.
Nearly eight years ago, she
had completed a computer class
offered to older adults when
she learned of the Yad Ezra
job opportunity.

and volunteers became her extended
family, Luger said, "quick to offer
advice and support while possessing a
wonderful wit. She genuinely cared
about the clients and could be over-
heard sharing medical advice, recipes
or lending a sympathetic ear. Above
all, she was kind."
Sara said her mother's sense of giving
was passed on to others who knew her.
"Family was most important to
her," Sara stressed. "She called her
brothers and sister daily and was a
caregiver to her extended family."
Even when she developed heart
disease eight years ago, she "lived life
to the fullest — she didn't com-
plain," Sara said.
