On January 14, 1906, Sadie married Bernath Markovitz in Philadelphia. Bernath was born in Hungary on December 25, 1874. He was one of the four Markovitz brothers who founded a dry goods store in Philadelphia. Sadie's architect brother, Louis, later performed design work on buildings for the Markovitz Brothers store. Sadie and Bernath had two daughters.

Bernath died suddenly of pneumonia on July 7, 1927 while on a trip to Budapest with Sadie and their daughters. His body was brought back to the United States by Julius (Gyula) Magaziner, a son of Henry's cousin Lajos. Bernath was buried at Adath Jeshurun Cemetery in Philadelphia, where many of the Magaziner family are buried.

Though Sadie lived nearly forty more years, she never remarried. Her Social Security application indicates that she worked maintaining the Markovitz Trust Fund with her nephew, S. Henry Rosenthal. Sadie died on June 21, 1964 at the Rest Haven for Convalescents. She was 85. She is buried with Bernath at Adath Jeshurun.

By an odd coincidence, Sadie and Bernath aren't the only Magaziner-Markovitz couple. A grandson of Sadie's sister Jennie marrried a granddaughter of Bernath's brother David Markovitz.

Children of Sadie Magaziner and Bernath Markovitz are:

  1. Helene Markovitz (b: 27 OCT 1906; d: 11 OCT 1999)
  2. Cecelia Markovitz (b: 4 JAN 1909; d: 8 FEB 1974)

Helene Diamond was born in Philadelphia on October 27, 1906. She attended Philadelphia High School for Girls ("Girls' High") and graduated from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in 1931. Helene was deeply dedicated to her work as an artist. Her paintings and prints were exhibited in many Philadelphia area venues, including Philadelphia City Hall, the Philadelphia Art Alliance, and the Cheltenham and Abington Art Centers.

Helene married Samuel Diamond in Philadelphia on November 15, 1931. Sam was born in Philadelphia on January 23, 1904. He was an attorney, a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, and became a partner in the firm of Bell and Diamond. He also worked for a time as special deputy attorney general of Pennsylvania. Helene and Sam had two children, both still living.

Sam died at Abington Memorial Hospital in Jenkintown on August 2, 1976. He was buried at Adath Jeshurun, on the reverse side of the same tombstone as Helene's parents. Helene died of pneumonia at the Roslyn Nursing Home in Roslyn, Pennsylvania on October 11, 1999, two weeks before her 93rd birthday. She is probably buried with Sam, though the tombstone is not marked for her.
