Mother of Murray Sabrin dies

Libby Sabrin, a Holocaust survivor and the mother of former gubernatorial and U.S. Senate candidate Murray Sabrin passed away Friday evening after a two-decade battle with cancer.

Graveside services will be held at 10:30 AM on Monday at Cedar Park Cemetery in Paramus. Donations can be made in her memory to the Holocaust Center at Ramapo College.

“Mom will be remembered for her humor, compassion, wisdom and generosity. In fact, if everyone managed their financial affairs like Mom did, there would be no private or public debt crisis in America today,” Sabrin said in an e-mail to PolitickerNJ.com. “Mom was the ‘queen of coupons.’ You could not be Mom’s friend unless you ‘couponed’ after she taught you how to stretch the family budget.”
