To the family of Rosalie,

My deepest sympathy at the passing of your mom. Although it has been many years since I have seen her, I will always remember her as one of my customers from Dominick's at Touhy and Cicero, and also from working with Bruce and Jeff. Such a small world that I was able to reconnect through Cheryl at NorthShore. May your memories bring you comfort during this difficult time.

We will miss Rosalie's smile and her kindness. She was always thinking of others and wished everyone well. She was happy to hear of simchas and wanted to celebrate whenever she could. Rosalie and Marvin raised three amazing sons and have 3 beautiful daughter-in-laws and six wonderful grandchildren. We consider ourselves part of her extended family, through Debra and Bruce, Sara and Frances. Although we couldn't be at the funeral in person, we attended the virtual ceremony and it was a fitting tribute for a special person. May her memory be a blessing. Fondly, Dena, Jerry, Joel, Debra Wald and Naomi & Scott Warren

I remember Rosalie and Marv when they were members of the Lincolnwood Jewish Congregation. My family sat near them for High Holydays services for year. They were great people. I was (and still am) the Happy Day Card person for the Sisterhood. Rosalie would call and ask me to send cards. I, too was a teacher, and we would occasionally get into conversations about teaching . Rosalie, like Marvin, shall be missed. She was a sweet lady.
