Roshie was born April 3, 1929.[1] She was probably born in Cresson, Cambia, Pennsylvania, where she lived with her parents, Abe Harrison and Sadye (Bresnick) Harrison, in 1930.[2]

In 1940, Roshie lived in Sunbury, Northumberland, Pennsylvania, United States with her family[3] (see Notes).

Roshie married Arthur J. Shoenberger and they had a child, Leah (Schoenberger) Camiletti.[4]

Roshie died September 15, 1990 in Harrisburg, Dauphin, Pennsylvania, United States[5] and is buried in the Chisuk Emuna Cemetery in Harrisburg, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, United States.[4]


Roshie's brother, Gerald,[6] may have been the biological child of her mother's brother, Donald Bresnick, and her father's sister, Eva (Harrison) Bresnick, both of whom lived with Roshie and her parents in 1940, along with Gerald, who was identified as her father's nephew at that time.[3]
