Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, she moved to Flushing, Queens, in 1960 after marrying her beloved husband, Irwin (Irv) Kalet, and then to Rockaway Beach, also in Queens. In 1970, Mrs. Kalet, along with her young family, moved to South Brunswick, NJ, where they resided for 25 years. After raising her family, and a career as a receptionist for many different doctors’ offices in the area, she and her husband Irv moved to Las Vegas in 1995.

Mrs. Kalet enjoyed needlepoint, word search puzzles, gambling on slot machines, and baking. She loved “Star Trek” and Japanese and American monster movies, especially “Mighty Joe Young” and “Godzilla,” and encouraged a love of reading in her children. She loved watching her children and grandchildren in plays, dance recitals, and concerts. And she made the best Mandelbrot (a German/Yiddish almond bread) in America, according to her children and husband.
