Maxine "Mickie" Sablosky, 80, a Center City Realtor who loved golf and big-brimmed hats, died of a stroke Sunday at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.
Mrs. Sablosky was born in Logan and graduated from Girls High School. After studying at the University of Pennsylvania for two years, she went to work with her father, Paul Goldenberg, in their imported-lighting-fixture business, Taube, at 23d and Chestnut Streets.
She married Norman Sablosky in 1948, and the couple traveled to Italy to find beautiful lights to sell at Taube, which closed in the 1980s.
"Each day, Mother got up and went to work," said daughter Jill. "My little Mom [5 feet, 1 inch] was small, but she was a force."
In her 50s, Mrs. Sablosky earned a Realtor's license and sold high-end residential property in Philadelphia as an associate vice president of Jackson Cross Co., which became Fox & Roach and then Prudential Fox & Roach.
Mrs. Sablosky was named top producer several times before retiring about a year ago.
A golfer who was honored for many holes in one, Mrs. Sablosky was a member of the Women's Golf Association of Philadelphia. She also was president of the Philmont Country Club women's golf committee.
Mrs. Sablosky had a great appreciation of the art and history of Philadelphia. She was a docent in Fairmount Park historic houses, and she and her husband studied art at the Barnes Foundation.
In addition to her husband and daughter, Mrs. Sablosky is survived by another daughter, Ann; a son, Thomas; and four grandchildren.
A memorial service will be at 1:30 p.m. tomorrow at Congregation Rodeph Shalom, 614 N. Broad St. Donations may be made to the Abramson Cancer Center of the University of Pennsylvania, in care of John H. Glick, 1218 Penn Tower, 3400 Spruce St., Philadelphia 19104.
