With love, we celebrate the life of Rose Winterfeldt.  She passed at age 92 at Calvary Hospital on Saturday, November 23, 2019.

Her early years were spent in Berlin, surviving the difficult war years.  Her Shoah testimony is available and can be viewed at: https://youtu.be/bdYXVpgIJD8   After immigrating to the United States, she raised her two children and worked as a bi-lingual legal secretary.  

A resident of Yonkers for the last 56 years, Rose volunteered her time at St. John’s Riverside Hospital and at the Michael N. Malotz Skilled Nursing Pavilion for over 10 years.  She also spent many hours knitting blankets for Project Linus https://www.projectlinus.org
