Ethel Goldblatt, who worked at Women’s Wear Daily for 40 years, died on Tuesday at the age of 95 in Glen Cove, N.Y.
Goldblatt was the third of four children born to Russian immigrants Morris and Emma Goldblatt in Washington, D.C., but grew up in Brooklyn, where she attended James Madison High School. She lived in Rego Park, Queens, for most of her life, and worked as a secretary at the department store S. Klein in Manhattan, then the furniture company Peck and Hill and Hoffman Motors. In 1962, she began working at Women’s Wear Daily, first as secretary to the editor in chief, Earl Dash; in 1970, she became the secretary to the editors at the City Desk, a position she held until she retired in 2002.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
