Additional Notes 1 child Susan Hourihan de Wine; SANA GOLDBLATT 08 Jan 1915 25 Feb 2003 (V) 94107 (San Francisco, San Francisco, CA) (none specified) 055-12-9010 New York ------ A volunteer nurse during the Spanish Civil War, Sana Goldblatt was also a founder of the Bay Area Post of the Veterans of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade. Throughout her life, Sana was an advocate for peace and justice. Born and raised in New York, she put herself through college and Beth Israel Nursing School. At age 21, she volunteered to serve as a nurse in Spain, where she was stationed at Villa Paz, Alcorisa, and Cordoba. Sana returned to New York in 1939 and resumed her schooling as an occupational therapist. She and her daughter, Susan, moved to San Francisco in the late 1940s. In the early 1960s, she helped reestablish the Bay Area Post and served as its treasurer. Sana was not one to call attention to herself or her deeds; to her, she did what she did because it needed to be done. She will be greatly missed by all. —Susan Saiz
