Selma Kron, 81, a former Horsham resident who with her husband built a foundering business in Ambler into a successful nursing home, died Sunday, Jan. 13, in Clearwater, Fla., where she had lived since the 1990s.
She was diagnosed in April with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a progressive neurodegenerative disease.
Born and raised in Philadelphia, Mrs. Kron graduated from West Philadelphia High School, then graduated with a bachelor's degree in education from the University of Pennsylvania in 1953.
She married Norman Kron, and they raised five children and turned around the Ambler Rest Center, a skilled nursing center.
Andrea Kron, Mrs. Kron's daughter, said her father had been a partner in a failing business.
