Ben Gailing died Saturday, March 27, 1999, at the age of 100, at the Hebrew Rehabilitation Center in Roslindale (Boston), Massachusetts, where he had lived for the past eight years. This web page consists of a growing collection of text, images, audio, and video material in various languages, primarily English and Yiddish, and is dedicated to Ben's memory.
Ben Gailing was survived by other relatives other than Gail Liebowitz. Namely Esther Kohn, Linda Weiss and Jerry Gailing. These were his nieces and nephew from his brother Max Gailing. Ben was one of four brothers, along with Harry, Max and Oscar. They were the most devoted brothers you could ever meet. On Sunday at the Gailing's (the parents of the brothers) house you could always hear music and singing. Their love for music and each other was remarkable. I was a very little girl at the time but that memory is strong in the mind and heart. I am Max Gailing's step daughter Bernice. Max married by mom, Doris Gailing who is now 95 and the only survivor of that generation.
