Sylvia Hirsch, 95

Southborough – Sylvia (Goldman) “Simmie” Hirsch, 95, a longtime Southborough resident, died Thursday, Jan. 24, 2013, surrounded by her family. She was the wife of Morris Hirsch, who passed away in 2002.

Born and raised in Worcester, she was the daughter of the late Israel and Anna (Kladowska) Goldman. In 1939, she graduated from UMass-Amherst with a Bachelor's degree in the emerging science of microbiology. She and Morris married in 1943; they were together for 60 years.

After her youngest child entered middle school in 1964, she worked for Marlborough Hospital as a Bacteriologist for over 20 years.

Simmie was an avid reader and was known for her skill at solving word puzzles. Unselfish to a fault, no pleasure was both more simple and more profound for her than looking after her family and friends.

She is survived by her sons, Tony Hirsch of Rochester; and Peter Hirsch of Marlborough. She was pre-deceased by her daughter, Martha Hirsch, and her daughter-in-law, Roberta (Neumann) Hirsch.

Services are private.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be sent to New Bedford Women's Center, 405 Court St., New Bedford, MA 02740.

Arrangements are under the direction of the Morris Funeral Home, 40 Main St., Southborough. To leave words of condolence for the family, please visit www.morrisfuneralparlor.com.
