Rose died May 10, 1952 and was buried in the Chisuk Emuna Cemetery in Harrisburg, Dauphin, Pennsylvania, United States.
According to Rose's gravestone, she was born May 9, 1910. Her sister Leona was born less than seven months earlier, on November 19, 1909, according to her gravestone and Social Security Death Index record. Although it is possible that Rose survived such a premature birth, the 1910 census shows Rose's birth year as about 1908 and the 1920 census and 1930 census both show it as about 1909, which would allow for only five months age difference between her and Leona. It is likely that Rose was older than Leona because all three census records show them in that order. It is therefore believed possible that Rose was born in 1908, however in the absence of a more reliable source, her birth date is shown here as the one engraved on her gravestone.
