Aline Lawrence, 96, Mother Of Township Resident

Aline Greenberg Lawrence passed away peacefully in her sleep on Nov. 23 at the age of 96.

She was a quiet, strong and effective fighter for her family and for what was right. Aline met the love of her life, Seth Lipsky, in summer camp when they were 16 years old. They married at 20 and led a life filled with love, family, friends and more friends, travel and generosity.

Aline stood up to authority when she saw the need. She led efforts to get the golf club to build a proper locker room for the women members. She helped the Ridgefield Public Library raise a million dollars for their first major expansion. She was a role model for her daughters and many others.

She is survived by her sister, Adrienne Greenberg Orlan, and her daughters, Barbara Lawrence (and husband Allen Laskin) and Lori Lawrence (and husband Don Wixon) and her most treasured granddaughter Eva Kate Wixon.

She warmly welcomed her step-family – Amy Laskin and Jamie Smith, Gail and Jared Laskin (now deceased), Audrey and Parker Laskin and followed them even if at a distance.

Funeral services were held at Congregation Shir Shalom, 46 Peaceable St., Ridgefield, Ct. on Nov. 27.

Donations may be sent to the Ridgefield Library, 472 Main St., Ridgefield, Ct. 06877.
