      Debbie Issacs recalled that Gussie (Gitta) passed away in 1960. Sandy Fierstein remembered that Gussie (Gitta) is buried in Beth David Cemetery in Elmont, Long Island, and is buried with her third husband, Nathan. Beth David Cemetery doesn’t have an on-line searchable database, so it might also be where Basheva is buried.

      From the November 28, 1960 New York Times Obituary Section:
      “Weinberg, Gussie, of 471/2 Riverdale Ave., Brooklyn. Services will be held Midwood Memorial Chapel, 1625 Coney Island Ave., Brooklyn, today, at 2 P.M. sharp.”
