Mrs. Grund leaves behind her family, including her siblings, Rabbi Shlomo Besser, Mrs. Debbie Rosenberg and Rabbi Naftali Besser.
The levaya will be held today at 1 p.m. at Shomrei Hachomos Chapels, located at 4218 Fort Hamilton Parkway in Boro Park, Brooklyn. The aron will then be flown to Eretz Yisroel for kevurah there.
