Central Florida's Independent Jewish Voice


Mollie Matza Solomon passed away peacefully in Orlando, Florida, at 92 years of age. Mollie was born in Brooklyn, New York, on Jan. 19, 1929.

She was the devoted and loving wife of Morris “Morey” Solomon for over 69 year, whom she married in December 1951. In 1951 the couple settled in Burlington, Vermont, where they raised their four children until 1973 when the entire family of six relocated to Orlando, Florida. During her working years, Mollie was an executive secretary in the banking industry where she utilized her expert typing and short-had skills. Her proof-reading skills were second to no one.

Mollie was a selfless and loving mother and grandmother and always put the needs and happiness of other above her own. She was a very simple person who didn’t care about material things, but instead got her pleasure from the happiness of others. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. She was the devoted and loving wife of Morris “Morey” Solomon, the mother of four children and grandmother of eight. She is survived by her husband, Morris; sister, Annie Matza Nacht; son, Harold Solomon; daughter, Rochelle Solomon Berman (Steve Berman); son, Martin Solomon; and son, David Solomon (Laura Solomon).
