Menya R. Brick, 93, an area resident for more than 50 years who was an owner and operator of a grocery store near Capitol Hill for about 25 years, died Tuesday at the Hebrew Home of Greater Washington, where she had lived for the past two years. She had arteriosclerosis.
She came to this area in 1930. She and her husband of 58 years, Isadore Brick, owned and operated the old Cleveland Market near Fourth and G Streets NE until retiring in the mid 1950s. Mr. Brick died in 1964.
Mrs. Brick was a charter member of both the Beth Shalom Congregation in Washington and the Shaare Tefila Congregation in Silver Spring. She was a member of Hadassah.
She was a native of Russia and came to this country in 1918. She lived in Cleveland before moving to the Washington area. Mrs. Brick was a former resident of Silver Spring.
Survivors include a son, Paul, of Takoma Park; five daughters, Francys Barsky of Washington, Beverly Silva of Arlington, Geraldine Eppsteiner of Kensington, and Hilda Brick and Evelyn Schneider, both of Silver Spring; nine grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren.
The family suggest that expressions of sympathy be in the form of contributions to a charity of one's choice.
