Full Name: Anne Rosman
Date of Death: Saturday, February 13, 2021
Anne Rosman died peacefully after a brief illness on February 13, 2021, at the age of 91. She is survived by her two sons, Charles and Michael (Jessica Kasten), and a granddaughter, Lianna Rosman.
She was born in the Bronx in 1929 to Jack and Frieda Bassell. She grew up in and just outside the New York City area, went to Hofstra and Syracuse Universities for her undergraduate degree, and married Irwin Rosman on March 25, 1951. After living in Hempstead, NY for a short while, they moved to New Milford, NJ in 1957, where they remained for the rest of their lives.
Anne worked as a substitute schoolteacher while her boys were growing up, and then, later on, worked in the consumer survey field for Fieldwork East in Fort Lee, NJ. She was involved in local politics in her community. Later on in life she became interested in Jewish studies, and participated in several Torah study groups at Temple Emeth in Teaneck and Temple Avodat Shalom in River Edge.
Mostly, though, Anne was a dedicated parent and wife, and devoted friend. Those who knew her delighted in her off-beat sense of humor, quick wit, infectious smile, and easy laugh. She always had time to talk with friends. She worried about her “boys” (even when they were no longer boys), supported them at all times, and burst with pride at their accomplishments. She and Irwin travelled the globe, often with friends or family. She is sorely missed and remembered fondly.
