Sylvia Wien Novak 1911-2010

Roar Lions Roar will be mostly silent today as I pause to attend the funeral of my grandmother, Sylvia Wien Novak, who died Saturday morning in Chicago. She was a dynamic woman who once counted people like Mayor Anton Cermak and Sid Luckman as personal friends.

Yes, her maiden name is significant as her family was related to the family whose name adorns our beloved Columbia football stadium back in New York.
