Ruth Zemel

Ruth Gampel Zemel, 89, of Altamonte Springs, Fla., died Dec. 3, 2014. 

Mrs. Zemel, a philanthropist, funded the ascribing of a Torah for an Orthodox synagogue in Maitland, Florida. The scribe, Rabbi Eliezer Zirkind of Brooklyn, brought the almost-completed project to her home for final completion in a siyum hasefer ceremony. 

She is survived by three sons, Ron of Florham Park, Benjamin (Susan) of Newark, Del., and Andrew of Akron, Ohio; her daughter, Marcia Leder of Boca Raton, Fla.; a sister, Florence Newman of Fords; and two grandchildren. 

Services were held Dec. 5 with arrangements by J.L. Apter Memorial Chapels of Cedar Grove.
