CHICAGO — The co-founder of one of Chicago’s most iconic restaurants has died.
Superdawg announced Wednesday that Florence “Flaurie” Berman passed away in her sleep Tuesday evening. She was 92.
Berman worked alongside her husband, Maurie Berman, as they built their business, the restaurant said.
Maurie Berman died in 2015.
The Bermans opened Superdawg at 6363 N. Milwaukee Ave. in 1948, according to the Chicago Tribune. The two iconic 12-foot-tall hotdogs on top of the restaurant are named “Maurie and Flaurie” after the founders.
Superdawg is asking people to share their memories of Flaurie Berman on their Twitter feed.
