Rosamond Lillian Naidich
April 23, 1925 – March 12, 2018
Rosamond Naidich (nee Herman), age 92, peacefully passed away on March 12, 2018 under the care of hospice at Arbor Oaks Assisted Living in Greenacres, Florida. She was an intelligent, strong, and resilient woman who took her childhood disability of severe hearing impairment and turned it into a rewarding career teaching the deaf and hard of hearing children of Long Island, New York for over 25 years. Born in The Bronx, New York on April 23, 1925, she skipped several grades in school and, despite her hearing loss, began Hunter College at the age of 16. She attended graduate school at Columbia University Teachers College, receiving a Master’s Degree in Special Education. She married her husband, Arnold Naidich, in 1948 and they lived in The Bronx, Michigan, and New Jersey, before settling in Plainview, Long Island where they raised their two daughters. They retired to Lake Worth, Florida in 1986 and enjoyed traveling the world, entertaining, theater, music and spending time with their grandchildren. Rosamond loved to read and play bridge and could complete the New York Times Sunday crossword puzzle in ink. Rosamond is predeceased by her loving husband, Arnold Naidich of 52 years. She is survived by her children, Marcia Wagshol (Ron) and Rhonda Naidich (Khamis Tarakhan) and her three grandchildren, Matthew Wagshol, Adam Tarakhan, and Corey Wagshol, and her sister Alma Schiffer, sister-in-law Sylvia Edelson, and many nieces, nephews and cousins. The funeral will be held at IJ Morris Star of David Cemetery of the Palm Beaches on Thursday, March 15th at 11:00 and a celebration of her life will be held at the Wagshol residence in Lake Worth at 1:00 after the funeral. The family will hold a New York gathering at a future date to be determined. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to The Crohns and Colitis Foundation.
