Hermione Beaber

Military

Hermione Beaber was a New Yorker who served with the Women's Army Corps in England, assigned to the 2nd Air Division Headquarters.

She had grown up in the Bronx, the child of Isidore and Anna Beaber, who had settled there after moving to the United States from Poland and Austria respectively. Isidore ran Beaber's Fur Shop, 'established in the Bronx since 1900', as its adverts proudly proclaimed.

Hermione went to college and was working as an interior decorator prior to enlisting.

After the war she returned to New York and at some point married David Denker. They raised their son John in Huntington Station, New York. David died in 1986, Hermione in 2002.
