Bella Behrendt Seligman, aged 85, passed away peacefully at home on Friday, July 5, 2024. Born in Berlin, Germany, on August 22, 1938, to Mia and Harry Behrendt, Bella's early life was marked by resilience and bravery. In 1939, her family fled to Shanghai, China, where they lived in the Hongkew Ghetto. They later immigrated to the United States in November 1947, seeking a better life.

Bella was a devoted mother to Susan Koff (Stephen) and Ronald Seligman (Deborah), and a cherished grandmother to Stacy and Tracy Koff, and Rebecca and David Seligman.

She was known for her vibrant personality, finding joy in laughter, long phone conversations, and playing Mahjong with her many friends. Bella's family was the center of her world, and she will be remembered for the deep bonds she shared with them and her unwavering love and dedication.
