Etta Flaster Goldstein, age 98, of Altamonte Springs, passed away at her residence at Brookdale Altamonte Springs on Saturday, March 10, 2018. Born on Jan. 3, 1920, in New York City, she was one of four children and the only daughter born to the late Abraham and Rebecca Fishman Flaster. Raised by her mother and brothers following the early death of their father, Etta was fortunate to be able to complete high school.

She had a varied working career, but ultimately worked as a clerk/typist for the Nassau County NY Police Department before retiring. In 1979, Etta and her late husband, Bernard, who passed away in 1994, relocated to the Williamsburg area of Orlando. Etta maintained her own home until moving to what was then Merrill Gardens in the early 2000s.

Etta is survived by her sons Alan (Marsha) of Apopka and Leonard (Hazel) of New Hampshire; and her grandchildren—Jeremy (Tammy), Matthew (Lyla), Adam (Ann) and Heather; and her great-grandchildren—Valerie, Madison, Violet, Johanna, Caleb, Mackenzie, Haley and Isaac. She was predeceased by her brothers, Hyman, Murray and George.

A graveside service was held at Beth Israel Cemetery in Gotha, with Rabbi Arnold Siegel of Jewish Family Services officiating. In memory of Etta F. Goldstein, the family requests donations to Hospice of the Comforter, 480 W Central Parkway, Altamonte Springs 32714.

Arrangements entrusted to Beth Shalom Memorial Chapel, 640 Lee Road, Orlando 32810. 407-599-1180.
