Estelle Ruth (Edison) Fineman, age 104, of Newport News, Virginia died peacefully on July 25th, 2022. She was born on June 17th, 1918 in Portland, Maine, and was happily married to the late Charles Fineman for 40 years. She is survived by her three daughters and spouses; Penny Fineman Warner (Tim), Sheryl Fineman, Charlene Fineman Koplin (Kal). Her grandchildren and spouses; Alex Koplin (Tina), and Amy Koplin Miller (Tom). Her great grandchildren; Charlee and Chaz Koplin, and the late Ellie Miller (whom was named after Estelle). Estelle was a fierce and amazing woman. To be 104 and still so with it was simply incredible. She always told it like it like it is. If you tried to talk to her during a Braves game, an Indiana basketball game, or CNN – forget it – she would hang up on you. She was an avid reader, and loved a good game of rummikub. She loved being part of the Jewish community and her family and friends were her entire life. To say that she lived for her family would be an understatement. She had the best smile and made so many friends that became like family to her.
A graveside service will be held on Thursday, July 28th, at 1:00 pm at Jewish Cemetery of the Virginia Peninsula at 1817 Kecoughtan Rd, Hampton, VA 23661. Guests are invited to join the family to sit shiva at Hidenwood Retirement Community’s Sunroom at 50 Wellesley Dr, Newport News, VA 23606.
