"I am searching for the obituary of :
Ruth T Bannahan, died Oct 1, 1994, Maryland.
I am hoping she was the daughter of Samuel and Shirley SACHS. Would anyone
be able to look up this obituary for me?

1) If she was buried in the Baltimore area, chances are that the funeral
arrangements were handled by Sol Levinson & Bros. They are currently the
only Jewish funeral home in Baltimore and provide services for Jewish
burials for who died in the greater Baltimore area (including Baltimore
City, Baltimore County, Howard County, etc) They also have some of the
records >from the Jack Lewis Funeral Home (which went out of business).
Levinson would have a record of her parents/copy of death certificate. You
can contact them at info@...
2) The Jewish Museum of Maryland has obituaries >from the Baltimore Jewish
Times, Contact :dweiner@...
The obit >from the Jewish Times will be the same as for the Baltimore Sun.
Please note however that unless Ruth's parents (or one parent) were living
at the time of her death, it is doubtful that the names of her parents will
be in the obit.
The Jewish Museum also has the following:
