Louise Selleck Greenbaum, 89, of West Hartford, Conn., who was a teacher in Cherry Hill, died of complications from a heart ailment on Sunday, June 24, at the University of Connecticut Health Center in Farmington, Conn.
Mrs. Greenbaum lived from 1960 to 2010 in Cherry Hill, where her husband, Maurice, was executive director of the Jewish Community Center of Camden County for a time, according to the couple's daughter, Beth Bernstein.
"She did what she called 'bedside teaching,' " which meant tutoring homebound students, Bernstein said. "I don't remember her being in a classroom," she said.
Born in New London, Conn., Mrs. Greenbaum was the daughter of Samuel Selleck, a gas station owner who at one time was the city's mayor.
