    1. [S1304] Obituary for Selma Nathanson, Miami Herald, The (FL) - Friday, June 12, 1992 (Reliability: 3).
      Deceased Name: SELMA NATHANSON, RETIRED CLOTHING STORE OWNER
      Every Christmas, members of the Optimist Club in Hollywood would take orphans to the Betsy and Billy Children's Department Store in downtown Hollywood. They'd leave with new clothes for the children.
      Selma and Albert Nathanson, the store's owners, just wanted to help.
      "Her character and personality inspired not only her children, but the community," Rabbi David Shapiro said of Selma Nathanson, who died Tuesday of a heart attack. She was 77.
      Selma Rena Nathanson and her husband moved to Fort Lauderdale in 1939 from their hometown of Elizabeth, N.J., and opened Vogue Gifts, an accessory store at 202 S. Andrews Ave., said Betsy Rappaport, the Nathansons' daughter. When World War II broke out, they moved to Brooklyn, where Albert Nathanson got a job in the defense industry.
      In 1947, they returned to Fort Lauderdale, where Albert worked with his father, building houses, Rappaport said. The following year, they moved to Hollywood and opened the children's store. They also became pioneer members of Temple Sinai in Hollywood, Shapiro said.
      The Nathansons sold their store and their Hollywood house and moved to Plantation a couple of years ago.
      One of Selma Nathanson's loves was orchids. She grew many orchids and other plants in her back yard, using the orchids to decorate the house at her children's weddings, Rappaport said.
      Nathanson's needlework, pillows and crocheted handicrafts filled the house, she said.
      "She could do anything," Rappaport said.
      Besides her daughter, who lives in Dunwoody, Ga., Nathanson is survived by her husband, Albert; a son, Bill, of Plantation; two sisters, Ruth Scherman and Irma Walfish of Hollywood; a brother, Herbert Weinstein, of Hollywood; four grandchildren; and one great-grandchild.
      Levitt-Weinstein Beth David Funeral Home handled funeral arrangements.
