Mendel Gottesman Mother #hungary


E Feinstein
 

I am researching the Kohen GOTTESMAN family of Munkacs, Hungary.  One of the sons was the famous philanthropist Mendel GOTTESMAN.  The library at Yeshiva University is named after him and he founded the paper company Central National Gottesman.  It is said that his mother Chaya Rivka (Helen) remarried a SPIEGEL--a member of the German Jewish department store family (Joseph SPIEGEL) and moved to Chicago. We do not know her maiden name yet.  Did she pass away there on February 11, 1886?  I wanted to know if there were any Chicagoland experts out there who could assist in finding either an obituary or death record.  Please let me know.
Thank you in advance.
