Obituary for Barbara Heller Kahn
Barbara Heller Kahn passed away on December 9, 2017. She lived a full and vibrant life during which she enriched the lives of many by her larger than life presence and left an indelible positive imprint on all who knew her love. She was born July 16, 1928 in NYC to Carl and Florence Heller. She was an excellent student and athlete and graduated from Keuka College in upstate NY. After college she worked as photographic journalist and editor before meeting and marrying the love of her life, her late husband, David M. Kahn, who passed away in 2008. They were residents of Rye Brook, and Palm Beach Gardens, FL. Barbara is survived by three children, William Kahn, James Kahn and Caroline Kahn Bianchi and by her daughters-in-law, Sandra Kahn and Jane Kahn and her son-in-law, Richard Bianchi, all of whom she loved as her own. She is also survived by five granddaughters, Julianne Kahn Payne, Marielle and Madeleine Bianchi, and Justine and Jenna Kahn, who collectively, and each in their own unique way, were the pride and joy of her life. Finally, she is survived by a great grandson, Sullivan Payne, whom she met for the first time at a joyous Thanksgiving this past November. An only child she leaves behind many close friends and her cherished Thelma Silberstein and Sylvia Greene. In addition to her work as a full-time Mother and homemaker Barbara volunteered her services at United Hospital in Port Chester, NY among other community based organizations. She was also a passionate supporter and devoted champion of many charities and causes among them Jupiter Medical Center, St. Jude Children’s Hospital and Planned Parenthood. She loved golf, tennis, swimming and bridge, the NYTimes, theatre and art, and was undaunted by her physical limitations in her pursuit to live life to its fullest. This world is just a little less interesting as a result of the void left by her passing.
