Lane Cove Mourns the Passing of Popular Lane Cove Businesswoman Minyan

This week it was very sad to publish a notice on our Facebook page advising that long time Lane Cove Businesswoman Minyan passed away on 5th October 2021.
Minyan suffered a stroke on 7th September and spent four weeks fighting for her life. Unfortunately, it was not to be.
For over 25 years, Minyan worked hard to service her Lane Cove customers and has probably hemmed nearly every school uniform in Lane Cove. She worked long and hard because she loved what she did. It was not about profits; it was about the relationship she had with her clients. She saw many young children grow into adults (and then become her customers). She helped families celebrate weddings, formals, graduations and more.

Tributes Flow

After advising our readers that Minyan had passed away, our Facebook page was flooded with tributes.  A sample of some of the tributes below:

Memorial Seat

One ITC readers suggested that a memorial plaque should be attached to one of the seats in The Canopy – nearest to the Lane Cove Arcade, where Minyan had her business for over 20 years.  We have written to the Lane Cove Council with a request.

The funeral is being held on Friday 15th October at 1130 at Camilla Chapel in Macquarie Park Crematorium on Delhi Road.
Due to Covid restrictions, numbers are limited, and family members will be offered priority.
Minyan’s sister Vivian can be contacted on 0416 368 722 for the collection of any clothing.
You will be missed, Minyan, and our thoughts go out to your family and friends.
