Lenore Asher of Dedham, formerly of Newton, died March 8. She was 91.

The younger daughter of Robert and Beatrice Elman, she was born in Philadelphia and grew up in Bedford Hills, N.Y. For 57 years, she was married to the love of her life, the late Norman B. Asher, and lived in Newton. She is survived by her beloved sons Steven, Jacob, Benjamin and Robert, her 10 cherished grandchildren and numerous other members of her extended family, all of whom she loved dearly. In addition to her husband, she was predeceased by her sister Edythe Glucksman, whom she always remembered and whose three sons had a special place in her heart.

Lenny was the loving, warm, brilliant, funny center of her family and touched the lives of countless others, right up to the end of her life at Newbridge-on-the-Charles. She was constantly in motion as an indefatigable and loyal wife, mother, aunt, grandmother, daughter, friend, colleague, hostess, confidante, and so many other roles. She loved to travel around the world, talk faster than almost anyone, cook thousands of meals and shop for countless more, entertain, raise money for the Combined Jewish Philanthropies and other political and charitable causes, and most of all, cherish and spend time with her children and grandchildren at home in Newton or in the summers on Martha’s Vineyard. She enjoyed everything that life could offer, even when late in life cognitive and physical challenges made it hard for her to walk and converse.

The family wishes to thank Kathy McGuinness and her team of companions and caregivers for all the laughter and love they brought to Lenny in her final years, abso-tootly, as she would say.
