Former Warren woman missing in Florida condo collapse
A former Warren woman is among the 150 people listed as missing following the collapse of the Champlain Towers South Condo in Florida, according to reports.
Dr. Josh Spiegel told the Cleveland Jewish News that his mother, Judy Spiegel, 65, lived in Warren with her husband Kevin when he was an executive at Trumbull Memorial Hospital for four-and-a-half years.
According to his LinkedIn account, Keven Spiegel served as Forum Health’s Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer in Warren from 2003 until 2007 when he became Trumbull Memorial’s President and COO until 2008.
Rachel Spiegel, Judy Spiegel's daughter, told NBC South Florida that the wait for news of her mother was the "worst day of her life."
"My mom is just the best person in the world," she said. "We have not stopped giving hope that she's there and alive, and we're just praying and praying." Before she went missing, Judy Spiegel was in the process of ordering a Disney princess dress for her granddaughter.
In an interview with NBC’s Andrea Mitchell, Josh and Rachel said they are hoping and praying for a miracle as they go to the collapse site every day.
“She is the best person in the world, she defines selflessness,” said Josh Spiegel. “She writes us Mother’s Day cards.”
The siblings told CNN that their father was out of town on the day of the collapse.
