Herb Citrin, a.k.a. Mr Valet, dies at 91


Herb Citrin, who pioneered valet parking in Los Angeles and was known to many as Mr. Valet, died on June 15 at the Jewish Home for the Aging in Reseda following a long illness. He was 91.

Born in 1922, Citrin grew up in Boyle Heights and then Glassell Park, where his mother kept a traditional Jewish home in an area he described as “99 percent gentile” during a 2002 interview with the Jewish Journal. Because his mother didn’t drive and his father worked nights and slept during the day, Citrin didn’t have a traditional Jewish education and never had a bar mitzvah.

A month before his 16th birthday, he joined his father parking cars six nights per week at restaurants, including Lawry’s The Prime Rib, even before he had a driver’s license. Citrin briefly attended Los Angeles City College before joining the Navy in 1942, where he worked as a radio and sonar operator aboard submarines in the Pacific during World War II. 

Following his discharge in 1945, around the time of his marriage to Harriett Rosenmeyer, Citrin took over the parking concession at Lawry’s. Citing sloppy dress among valets at the time, he brought formality to the industry by having employees dress in military uniforms and wear white gloves. 

After founding Valet Parking Service (VPS) in 1946, Citrin went on to handle parking for more than 20 restaurants along La Cienega Boulevard. VPS switched the uniforms for black ties and vests and expanded its client list to include hotels, department stores and Los Angeles International Airport as well as such Hollywood events as the Oscars, Emmys and Golden Globes.

Wanting to retire, Citrin sold VPS in 2003. 

A supporter of The Jewish Federation, the Jewish Home for the Aging and Gateways Hospital, Citrin joined Rabbi Isaiah Zeldin to help found Stephen S. Wise Temple in 1963. His first wife, Harriet, who died in 1987, made sure their children got the Jewish education Citrin didn’t have access to when he was younger.

In 2002, at 80 years old, Citrin had the bar mitzvah he missed when he was 13. His son, Rabbi Paul Citrin, officiated during the service at Stephen S. Wise Temple, while his grandson Rabbi Micah Citrin, then a student at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, sang and accompanied him on guitar.

Citrin is survived by second wife Ione, daughter Laurie Briskin, son Rabbi Paul Citrin, six grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

Dorothy Gould, former Hadassah Beverly Hills president and volunteer, dies at 89


Dorothy Gould, a former Hadassah Beverly Hills chapter president and dedicated volunteer, died on Feb. 18. She was 89.

Born in Chicago, Ill., in 1923, the youngest child of Max and Sarah Stein, Gould grew up in Ventura, where she attended Ventura College and worked as a legal secretary for the Ventura County District Attorney. 

In October 1947, she married Joseph “Joe” Gould, founder of Gould & Co. Transportation and later Hollywood National Bank. Gould dedicated her time to charitable organizations, serving as a past president of Hadassah’s Beverly Hills chapter, as a board member of the Julia Ann Singer Center and as a board member and former sisterhood president of Temple Israel of Hollywood. She was also involved with March of Dimes, United Way and the National Conference of Christians and Jews.

Gould is predeceased by her husband. She is survived by sons David (Deborah Chankin) Gould and Marc (Cyndi Goldman, z”l) Gould; grandchildren Sarah (Yonah Schmeidler) Chankin-Gould and Rabbi D’ror (Cantor David Berger) Chankin-Gould; and great-grandchildren Matan Berger-Gould and Yona Chankin-Gould.

A funeral was held at Mount Sinai Memorial Park in Los Angeles on Feb. 22. Contributions in her memory should be sent to the Beverly Hills chapter of Hadassah and United Way

Sally Ogle Davis, activists in Jewish arts and synagogue life, dies at 71


Sally Ogle Davis, a teenage television personality in Northern Ireland, chronicler of the famous and powerful in Hollywood, and activist in Jewish arts and synagogue life, died Dec. 11 in Seattle. She was 71.

Her death, after a two-year battle with pancreatic cancer, ended a 45-year partnership in creative writing and investigative journalism with her husband, Ivor Davis.

After marrying and immigrating to the United States in 1967, both worked for 20 years as editors at Los Angeles Magazine, reported for British newspapers and TV and wrote columns for the Jewish Journal.

Ogle Davis, born in London into a showbiz family and raised in Belfast, broke into television at 18. An obit in the Irish Times led off with the following paragraph:

“When television was black and white, Sally Ogle brought glamour to nightly news programs during the 1960s, when she became presenter [host] on UTV [Ulster Television] and BBC Northern Ireland, where her stunning looks and razor-sharp intellect marked her out for greater things.”

Simultaneously, she was active in Belfast’s sole synagogue.

In Los Angeles, she found her main niche in reporting on the glamorous and political sides of her adopted city, specializing in incisive interviews with newsmakers, ranging from Paul Newman to Ronald Reagan.

Her various assignments included West Coast correspondent for the BBC, documentary producer for CBS-TV and contributor to the New York Times Sunday Magazine.

Ivor Davis described the couple’s professional relationship, telling the Ventura County Star, “I spent my life as a foreign correspondent, and I was a meat-and-potatoes writer. Sally was a crème-de-la-crème writer. We discovered we could work together on stories. I did the digging and Sally did the finishing touches.”

Ogle Davis continued her involvement in Jewish religious and arts life and helped establish a Reconstructionist congregation in Malibu. After moving to Ventura in the 1980s, she served on the board and pulpit committee of Temple Beth Torah, was a founding member of the Ventura County Jewish Film Festival and was actively involved in the Ventura Music Festival and in Planned Parenthood.

Rabbi Lisa Hochberg-Miller of Beth Torah recalled, “Sally was unquestionably one of the brightest women that most of us have ever met. … She had an incredible interest in just about everything.”

Ogle Davis is survived by her husband, Ivor Davis; daughter, Rebecca Davis-Suskind (David); son, Gideon (Tricia) Davis; four grandchildren; and a sister.

The family suggests that those wishing to honor her memory consider donations to the Virginia Mason Pancreaticobiliary Cancer Fund, attention Dr. Vincent Picozzi, Virginia Mason Medical Center, Mailstop Buck 2, 110 Ninth Ave., Seattle, Wash., 98110.
