Carmen Lichtenstein

Centenarian and native Denverite Carmen Lichtenstein died Dec. 13, 2021. Mrs. Lichtenstein was 103. A service was held at Emanuel Cemetery on Dec. 16, 2021, officiated by Rabbi Steven Foster and Cantor Elizabeth Sacks. Feldman Mortuary made the arrangements.

Mrs. Lichtenstein was born in Denver on November 3, 1918. She attended East High School and CU Boulder, and worked as a savings counselor at Western Federal Savings.

In 1941 she married Judge Alvin Lichtenstein. They were married 52 years before Judge Lichtenstein’s passing in 1991.

Mrs. Lichtenstein was a member of Temple Emanuel Sisterhood and was a volunteer for United Way.

“She was gracious, kind and sweet, always thinking of others and making sure they felt comfortable and cared for,” the family said. “She also was filled with so much life and energy. She loved to dance and sing old show tunes, she excelled at tennis — well into her eighties, and even did Pilates into her nineties.”

Survivors include children Carol (Sy, Mel) Stern Levine, Dr. Kenneth (Karen) Lichtenstein, Peggy (Merrill) Emmett, and Nancy Lichtenstein; 10 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren.

Contributions can be made to the Temple Emanuel Denver clergy/music funds.
