Barbara Carol Rosenberg (nee Straus), age 67, passed away on December 1, 2020 after a brief but brave battle with ALS.
Barbara is survived by Steven, her devoted husband of 46 years, as well as her beloved children Todd (and wife Stephanie) Rosenberg, Jodie (and husband Dan) Taraborrelli. She was a blessed Bubbe to Abigail and Asher Rosenberg, Max and Lila Taraborrelli and loving sister to Sheryl Kuperstein.
A two-time survivor of breast cancer, she lived life to the fullest. Whether trips to NYC with her cancer group, summer days at Belmar, NJ, or in more recent years snow-birding in Delray Beach, FL, she embraced travel with Steve and friends and always looked forward to their next adventures. Quick to smile and always enjoying a laugh, she cherished time with her fiends and was a constant presence at her weekly games of Mah-Jong and Canasta.
A case manager at Jewish Family & Children Services and volunteer for the Women's Cancer Research Association, Barbara cared deeply for her clients and the community she served. A tirelessly devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and friend, her family and friends were at the heart of her life well lived.
Donations in Barbara's memory can be made to Women's Cancer Research Association (c/o Paula Goldstein 1322 Orcap Way, Southampton, PA 18966) or Jewish Family & Children Services (jfcsphilly.org). Due to COVID a private ceremony is planned
