In Memoriam of:

Ana Mishaiv

Age: 64

From: Ofakim

In Loving Memory of the Innocent Souls Taken Too Soon. United in peace, their light shines on in the hearts left behind. October 7, 2023, a day of sorrow, but their memories guide us toward a hopeful tomorrow.

Ana Mishaiv, 64, a native of Russia, was killed in her home in Ofakim on October 7 by Hamas terrorists.

Her husband, Shimon, had died two years earlier. She is survived by children, siblings and grandchildren.

A relative, Michal Asher, wrote on Facebook: “Your life was cut short so early. Your love and warmth and concern for all those around you, no matter what has been taken away from us… we will remember you, your voice and your hug.”

Her grandson, Shimon Mishaiv, wrote on Instagram that even 40 days later, “My heart cannot accept this, I don’t even know what to write and tell about you, what words can I say so that people will understand what kind of person you were.”

“It doesn’t matter how many words I write about you, Grandma, it will be hard, almost impossible, to say how good you were, with the tastiest food in the world, with the most beautiful smile there was, the funniest words, you were such a good person,” wrote her grandson.

“When I called you would say how much you loved us and always worried about us like every grandma. You were a special person who didn’t bother anyone and Hamas terrorists came and murdered you horrifically… I hope that you achieved our joint dream from the past two years to see Grandpa and that you’re both looking at me now together and are proud of me.”
