Paul Kenneth Woolf ’73 of Chappaqua, N.Y., a pediatric cardiologist, died Nov. 4, 2010. He leaves his wife, Beth ’73; two sons, Jeremy and David; a brother, Louis ’76, and his wife, Sarah ’76.
Sheryl Margolis ’75 of Brentwood, Tenn., a psychotherapist, died on Nov. 15, 2010. She worked at Vanderbilt University and was an adjunct faculty member at the University of Tennessee’s School of Social Work. She leaves her husband, Pete, and two daughters, Meagan and Lindsey. She is also survived by a cousin, Barry Margolis ’79.
Mazelle “Muz” (Ablon) Bohacz ’78 of Dallas, a successful entrepreneur and dedicated alumna, died on Dec. 30, 2010, after a nine-month battle with pancreatic cancer. Known throughout Dallas as “the Cheesecake Lady,” she built Mazelle’s Cheesecakes, Concoctions, Creative Kitchen into a national brand that serviced thousands of restaurants nationwide. In 2001, at age 44, she sold the business and became her husband Kevin’s partner at CPrompt, an e-business consulting firm. For her work as co-chair of her 30th Reunion in 2008, she received the Service to the Alumni Association Award. She was the inspiration for last year’s creation of the Mazelle “Muz” Ablon Bohacz Award, which is given annually to Reunion chairs who demonstrate similar enthusiasm and dedication. A scholarship fund has been established in her name. In addition to her husband of 15 years, she leaves her parents, Fred and Suzanne; two sisters, Rachelle and Bari; and a brother, Baron (see tribute on page 59).
