Mildred “Millie” Bernstein of Omaha passed away on Nov. 4, 2021, at age 95, surrounded by her loving family. A memorial service was held Nov. 7, 2021, at Temple Israel.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 70 years, Harold E. Bernstein; parents, Herman and Bettie Zuber.

She is survived by daughter and son-in-law, Kay and Bruce Goldstein of Minnetonka, MN; son and daughter-in-law, John and Nancy Bernstein of Greenwood Village, CO; grandchildren: Aaron and Michelle Goldstein, Danny and Blair Goldstein, Max Bernstein and Madeleine Bernstein; great-grandchildren: Jordyn, Maya, Ava, Eliana, and Bodie; brother, Mort Zuber and brother and sister-in-law, Robert and Beverly Zuber; and many loving nieces and nephews.

Millie was born and grew up in Hastings, Nebraska, and attended the University of Nebraska, where she met her husband. Upon her marriage in 1947, she and Harold lived in Council Bluffs, Iowa, where they raised their family. As empty nesters, Millie and Harold moved to Omaha. For many years, Millie worked side by side with Harold in their business. In retirement, she enjoyed traveling, spending time with her expanding family, playing Mah Jong with her many life-long friends, and working out at the Jewish Community Center. Millie’s inner strength and fortitude were admired by all who knew and loved her.

We are forever grateful to the nurses and staff in the southwest neighborhood of the Rose Blumkin Jewish Home, who every day for the past year demonstrated much devotion, dedication, caring and love for Millie.

Memorials may be made in Millie’s memory to the Rose Blumkin Jewish Home, 323 South 132nd Street, Omaha, NE 68154 or a the organization of your choice.
