Sara Rosenfeld

ROSENFELD, Sara age 90 of Boca Raton and Brooklyn, died on December 26th. She was the loving mother of Paul (Lenni) Rosenfeld; Dear sister of Joli (Joseph) Goldstein; Cherished grandmother of Jason (Kim) Rosenfeld, Jamie (Timothy) O'Shea, Scott (Gladis) Fox, and Robyn (Jared) Newman; adored great grandmother of Eva and Cara Rosenfeld, Sofia Fox, and Brittany and Dylan Newman; and her beloved companion Louis Miller. She survived the Holocaust concentration camps then went back to Hungary and quickly met and married Dezso. In December of 1956 during the final days of the Hungarian revolution the family was scapegoated and attacked by townspeople for being Jewish. They blamed the failure of the revolution on the 2 Jewish families in town. Because of this, quick plans were made and the family escaped to Austria. The family immigrated to Brooklyn in 1957. Within a few years they opened a fruit store in Brighton Beach where she and her husband worked hard and long hours building a new life. She was a very generous person who helped anyone in need. She supported and donated to many Jewish causes. Sara loved her family very much. She was a member of the Avenue Z Jewish Center of Brooklyn for over 40 years. Services are being held at 10 am on Sunday, December 30th at I J Morris Funeral Directors, 1895 Flatbush Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 718-377-8610. Donations may be made to Hadassah or Your Favorite Charity.

Paul I loved your mother so much. She was such a good, kind and loving person. I called her recently (as I previously told you) and was so sad to find her not even remembering me. I called her a few months before that and the conversation was much better at that time. I will miss her a lot.

I pray God gives you the strength to deal with her loss because she was an outstanding person with a huge heart.
