Miriam Horowitz Eichner, 92, wife of the late Sidney Eichner, died March 22, 2010, in Carolton Chronic and Convalescent Hospital of Fairfield.

Eichner lived most of her life in New York City. She moved to Fairfield eight years ago. She had a long, fruitful career in the law profession. Time and again, her seasoned paralegal skills proved to be an exceptional asset to those she worked with at the law firm of Bower and Gardner.

After the untimely death of her husband, Sidney, she successfully balanced being employed full-time and raising her daughter, Sydelle, as a single parent.

Eichner loved living in New York and enjoyed all the city had to offer, including theatre, music and fine dining. She always looked forward to her vacations with family and friends. Her life-long passion was her family.

Eichner is survived by her daughter, Sydelle Livingston and her husband, Jay of Westport; her grandchildren, Gregg Tepper and his wife, Letha of Mandeville, La., David Livingston and his wife, Caroline of Boca Raton, Fla., Nicole Thomas and her husband, Robert of Wellington, Fla.; her great-grandchildren, Max, Alexander and Charlotte Tepper, Madison Livingston and Kaelyn Thomas; one sister, Selma Levine and her husband, Seymour of Islip, N.Y.; one niece, Shari Patron of West Islip, N.Y.; and the many people she has so positively touched throughout her life, including her friends at the Carolton.

A graveside committal took place on Thursday in Beth David Cemetery, 300 Elmont Road, Elmont, N.Y.; Rabbi Steven Ziskind officiated.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be directed to the American Cancer Society.
