Tamaara Danish Tabb, age 97, died on May 13, 2017. She was predeceased by her husband, Herbert L. Tabb. Born in the Ukraine, she immigrated as a child to Chicago with her family. She received under- and post-graduate degrees in the social sciences from the University of Chicago and an MA in Slavic Linguistics from NYU. Throughout her life she was deeply engaged, personally and professionally, in promoting racial, social, and economic justice. She worked first in Chicago for 20 years for the ILGWU and the Chicago Housing Authority and then for 30 years in NYC for the New York State Division of Human Rights. She was an avid traveller; a curious reader, sharing New York Times articles with a wide network of family and friends; an acute listener; and a passionate Scrabble player, drawing her extended family together in intense, hilarious games.
