Leah Rosenwasser
(11 Sept 1911 - 24 Jan 2006)


Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   If you haven't already heard, we have even more sad news.  Leah Rosenwasser, mother of Myra Rosenwasser Kahn ('58) of FL and David Rosenwasser ('64) passed away on Tuesday.  She was also the aunt of Meyera Ellenson Oberndorf ('58) of VA, William Schwartz, and Donald Schwartz ('62) of IL.  Many of you will remember her from the Riverside Hospital Pharmacy Department, where she worked for many years.  

 From Cookie Phillips Tyndall ('64) of VA - 01/25/06:


(Here is a link to) David Rosenwasser's mother's obituary. He graduated with us in 1964.


   Thanks, Cookie.

  From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 01/25/06:

Just received from    Linda Lane Lane ('64 - of VA). Bummer.  

    Thank you, David.  This is sad news.

  From Linda Lane Lane ('64) of VA - 01/25/06 - "Death of Mrs. Leah Rosenwasser":

Did you happen to catch the Daily Press today?  David Rosenwasser's mother died on Tuesday.  The service was today.  I remember her from working in the Pharmacy at Riverside for many years.  She was a delightful person and over the years kept more than one MD straight.  After her retirement, I saw her often in the kitchen at the Jewish Community Center.  What a true Lady.
I tried to send this to Carol but I have not been able to get any mail to her or receive anything from her for months.
Take Care
Linda L. Lane

   Thank you, Linda.  We must find out what is causing the difficulty with the emails.  That shouldn't be.

David, I am so sorry to hear of your mother's death. It is so difficult to lose the person who has been in our life since the beginning. The person who protected, guided and loved us without conditions.

You and your family are in my prayers.

May the good memories of your mother comfort you during this time and in the months and years to come.
Cookie Tyndall (Seaford, VA ) - January 25, 2006
David, I am sorry to be writing you under these circumstances but I did feel compelled to express my sincere sympathy at this time. Having lost both of my parents, I empathize with your feelings and just wanted you to know I'm thinking of you. All my best to you and your entire family. Sincerely, Joe
