  • OBITUARY:
    Paula Kornblum Popowski, 94, passed away on September 17, 2017. She was the daughter of Moshe and Sarah Kornblum. Born in Kaluszyn, Poland in 1923, Paula survived the Holocaust along with her sister using false documents to hide their Jewish identities. They lived in hiding as Catholics at a convent working in a glass factory in southern Poland. After the war, she and her sister smuggled into Germany and ended up in a displaced persons camp. She met Henry Popowski there, a community leader in the camp, and they married in August 1947. Paula was universally known for her warm smile and tight hugs. She was a brilliant woman who with Henry, ran Henry’s Furniture Company in downtown Charleston. Paula was devoted to her family, always up to date on the lives of her children and grandchildren. She was a true matriarch and worked tirelessly to assure a strong family unit. She was an accomplished cook and seamstress who avidly read the newspaper, watched Jeopardy and CNN. Never driving a car, Paula could be seen walking city streets on her errands in her beloved adoptive city, Charleston, South Carolina. Paula volunteered for many years at Roper Hospital which was a very rewarding experience for her. Paula was predeceased by her husband, Henry Popowski. She is survived by sons, Mark Popowski (Helene) and David Popowski (Anita Zucker); daughters, Sarah Popowski and Martha Berlin (Barry); grandchildren: Stephanie, Corey, Gabriel, and Emma Popowski, and Carly and Ross Berlin; and nephew, Myron Rushetzky. Graveside funeral services will be held 10:00 AM Tuesday, September 19, 2017 at the Brith Shalom Beth Israel Cemetery, 198 Sycamore Ave., Charleston, SC 29407, with Rabbi Moshe Davis officiating.
