Goldberg, Lois D. born 1/13/1930, passed away peacefully in her home on Friday, May 1st, 2020, at the age of 90. Lois was proud to have been born and raised in North Minneapolis to Tillie and Robert "Bob" Klugman, owner's of Malcoff's Confectionary and Delicatessen. Though her parents worked long hours, she appreciated growing up having "wanted for nothing," and having parents who pushed her to get a degree from the University of Minnesota. During her time at the U, she met the love of her life, Bud Goldberg, who continued surrounding her with love until he passed away in 2010. Lois was grateful to have a husband who supported her worldly travels for work as a Fashion Merchandise Buyer for Jackson Graves, and who enjoyed going with her to New York Fashion Week. When she became a mother to two loving children, she and Bud settled into family life in St. Paul, Minnesota. Across the Twin Cities, she became known for her entertaining, unparalleled style, and for being a culinary power-house (her famous "Sticky Chicken" recipe can still be found in the Star Tribune archives!). She continued to be an active philanthropist, member at Temple Israel, and in her minyan group. When no longer able to participate in- person, she would still contribute in her own ways, such as providing menu suggestions for others to consider. Her "stunning" white hair, incomparable style, and inability to get through a "divine" meal without spilling on herself (which Bud teased was her attempt to "keep dry-cleaners in business") will forever be missed. She is preceded in death by her loving husband, Allan "Bud" Goldberg, and son, Richard "Rick" Goldberg. She is survived by her incredible daughter, Patti Goldberg, and "menchie" grandchildren: Noah (and wife, Jess), Josh, and Isaac Goldberg; Tess and Mack Gittleman. The family would like to express their deepest gratitude for the invaluable care and companionship provided by Nursing Assistance, Debbie Taylor and Miriam Katti, who will forever be considered honorary "Goldbergs." Private funeral service will be held. No Shiva service (in accordance with social distancing rules). If desired, contributions can be made to Second Harvest Food Bank at 2harvest.org, so that everyone can enjoy a meal in Lois' honor. Condolences: hodroffepstein.com Hodroff-Epstein 612 871-1234
