Lauren Singer Goldfarb

October 1, 1965 ~ July 22, 2022 (age 56)


On the evening of July 22, 2022, Lauren Goldfarb passed away at age 56 after a 2-year battle with ALS. She faced her diagnosis with bravery and grace and without complaints. Lauren never let her declining health stand in the way of being an integral part of her family. She would always ask what’s going on in everyone else’s life rather than focusing on her own health. She loved to travel the world (the more exotic the better) as well as spending weekends with her family skiing at their home in Deep Creek. While many people would have given up, Lauren continued to live her life as fully as possible – attending music concerts, movies and jumping through hoops to attend family events until the very end.

Lauren was born to Stephen and Linda Singer in 1965. She graduated Emory in 1987 and went on to get a master’s degree in teaching and specialized in special education. She dedicated her life to teaching and making a difference for her students. In 1997, Lauren married Steven Goldfarb and together they raised a wonderful son Scott – their pride and joy.

Lauren was blessed to have her wonderful family there for her every step of her journey.  She was preceded in death by her father Stephen Singer and is survived by her husband Steven Goldfarb, son Scott Goldfarb, Ginger her beloved dog, Mother Linda Singer and siblings Juliette and Stuart Singer.

Funeral Service will be held on Tuesday, July 26, 2022, 12:30 p.m. at Washington Hebrew Congregation, 3935 Macomb Street NW, Washington DC 20016 with interment to follow at Garden of Remembrance, Clarksburg, MD.
