Condolences to the Cohen Family

With the passing of Irving Cohen, the downtown business community has lost a staunch advocate.

Suburban Jewelers has been a mainstay of the central business district for a long time. This family business is exactly what Plainfield needs, passing down interest and values to future generations. Elissa (Lisa) Cohen has long since taken up the mantle and has shown exemplary leadership in promoting Plainfield in her various roles as Special Improvement District leader and her new presidency of the Plainfield Chamber of Commerce.

In all these efforts, we see the embodiment of her father's ideals.

Irving Cohen's life will be celebrated at 11 a.m. Wednesday at Higgins Home for Funerals, 209 West Eighth Street. Besides his daughters Elissa and Marcy, he is survived by his wife of 50 years, Beverly.
