Born June 6, 1920 in New York to Samuel and Helen Blumberg, Bennet Leroy “Bill” Blumberg met his wife Helen Levinson while she was teaching at the University of Texas at Austin. The two married in 1944 while Bill was serving as a navigator in the Army Air Corps, and moved to New York after the birth of their daughter, Joan. In 1948, the family moved to Bellaire, where their second child Gary was born.
Bill worked in advertising while Helen raised the children at home. In her free time, Helen volunteered at the Texas Children’s Hospital, a practice she continued for more than 50 years. She also served in the Sisterhood of Congregation Emanu El and was on the Congregation’s board of trustees. Bill passed away on August 25, 1981 when Helen was 58, and was buried in Emanu El Memorial Park.
