Malka Keva worked in Israel’s Wolfson Medical Center in Holon, Israel, for more than 30 years. She passed away on March 24 after contracting COVID-19.

She was first assigned to the maternity ward and then transferred to other departments at Wolfson.

“She was a woman who was always laughing,” recalled a neighbor. “She took life easy. She raised her three children beautifully.”

Keva is survived by her husband, three children and six grandchildren.
