De­cem­ber 18, 1922 - De­cem­ber 6, 2018

San Francisco Chronicle - - BAY AREA -

Jerry Neuhaus passed away on De­cem­ber 6, just short of his 96th birth­day. He was born and died on the fourth day of Chanukah. Jerry was a ded­i­cated hus­band to Renée Neuhaus, the lov­ing fa­ther of Sandy Edwards, Deb­bie (Gary) Frank, and Nancy Neuhaus; ador­ing grand­fa­ther of Gabriel and David Edwards, Naomi (Brad) Chusid, Jeremy (Jenn) Frank, and Marc (Xiu) and Eric (Narita) Sa­muel. One of the great joys of his life was to wel­come the birth of his three great-grand­chil­dren: Noah and Hannah Chusid, and Fiona Frank.

Born as Ger­hard in Span­gen­berg, Ger­many, on De­cem­ber 18, 1922, he es­caped the ris­ing tide of an­ti­semitism with his par­ents, Max and Flora Neuhaus and his sis­ter Hilde in 1937. They trav­eled by ship through the Panama Canal to San Fran­cisco. It was at Low­ell high school that Jerry first met his fu­ture wife, Renée Cohn (who had im­mi­grated from Ger­many her­self in 1939). Af­ter he served in the US Army dur­ing WW II, they mar­ried and Jerry ran the fam­ily cloth­ing store, Neuhaus Broth­ers, lo­cated in the Fillmore dis­trict.

Af­ter Jerry re­tired they trav­eled the world with their many friends. In 2007 they moved to Rhoda Gold­man Plaza. Renée passed away in 2014. They had been mar­ried for 67 years.
