Betty Rubinstein is survived by her children, Ida (Mark) Manning, Charlotte Rubinstein (Mike Salvati) of Oak Park, and Joyce Pollakoff; her grandchildren, Joe Salvati and his wife Mel Selan, Vince Salvati, Zachary Pollakoff and his wife Nancy Rosenbloom, and Alexandra "Xani" Pollakoff. All who knew her cherished her.
