Edith L. Wolff (nee Waldman), died December 26, 2008, at age 93. Widow of Alan A. Wolff; sister of Pearl T. (Lester B.) Oppenheim, the late Sheldon (the late Johnnie) Waldman and the late Marvin Waldman; aunt of Morry (Angela P.) Oppenheim, Helen J. (Jonas R.) Steiner, Frank S. (Sherri P.) Oppenheim, Sheldon H. Oppenheim, Rita O. (Ted A.) Pozniakoff, Randy (Jill) Waldman and Frank Waldman; great-aunt of many great-nieces and great nephews. Edith’s greatest joy in her life came from her marriage of more than 50 years to Alan. Virtually inseparable companions, they loved traveling, fishing and business. Mr. Wolff was the founder of Wolff Construction Company in the late 1940’s and developed numerous housing subdivisions, retail stores and shopping centers in the St. Louis metropolitan area, in the Missouri cities of Jefferson City, Sedalia, Independence and in the metropolitan Kansas City area. He retained and operated the Shopping Centers, most of which were built in conjunction with Kroger Company and many other retail properties through Wolff Construction Company. Following Alan Wolff’s death in 1989, Edith became the President of Wolff Construction and its many subsidiaries and operated them successfully until her death. She also began a more active and public philanthropic career, and she sought to set an example of public giving in the hope that others might also increased their charitable giving within their means. She gave to numerous causes and charities, with the largest contributions being made to Washington University for scholarships and research in its Medical School, to Barnes-Jewish Hospital Foundation, to St. Louis ARC and its Childgarden School, to Life Skills Foundation, to Miriam Foundation and to Rainbow Village Foundation. In 2007, Edith made a large gift to Washington University to establish The Alan A. and Edith L. Wolff Institute within the University’s School of Medicine to provide funds to advance the most promising areas of biomedical research at Washington University. Mrs. Wolff’s significant charitable contributions have been previously recognized by numerous awards from the organizations which she benefited, including an honorary degree in 2004 as a doctor of medicine from the prestigious Washington University. Edith was a resident of Clayton for more than 50 years, living in the same home that she and Alan Wolff acquired in the 50’s. She was a member of B’nai Amoona Congregation, and was a person of ideas and integrity who freely gave her advice and monies to help others. Contributions to a charity of your choice. Berger Memorial
