Rhoda Cohen

Rhoda Wattenmaker Cohen, born on April 23rd, 1933, passed away on July 5th, 2024 at the impressive age of 91. Rhoda was the daughter of Isadore and Anna (Finkle) Wattenmaker and older sister to Murray. A Philadelphia native, Rhoda married the love of her life, Martin (Marty) Cohen (deceased), and was an outstanding mother to her four children, Lynn Ester, Eric Mason (deceased), Glorie Jill, and Dana Lisa. Rhoda was the best Mom-Mom to six grandchildren, April, Chase, Cooper, August, Hunter, and Griffen, and step Mom-Mom to Rylie. Rhoda never failed to make those around her feel loved and important. After retiring from Fox Chase Cancer Center after over 20 years of service, Rhoda and Marty spent time together vacationing at the shore, visiting casinos, and dining out. As an active retiree, Rhoda’s daily activities included swimming laps, followed by a soak in the hot tub and a trip to the steam room. Her joys were drinking scalding hot coffee, with TastyKakes jelly krimpets, and spending time with her family. She loved to eat oysters and enjoyed a bloody mary and a dirty Kettle One martini with extra olives. History will remember Rhoda as the best technology user of her generation, never leaving the house without her iPad, iPhone, and Apple Watch. As the matriarch of the family, Rhoda always jumped at the chance to get involved and support her friends and family’s interests. Rhoda made friends wherever she went. Her love was felt by many and her light will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Rhoda’s funeral will be held at Goldsteins’ Southhampton, PA, Tuesday, July 9th, 2024 at 11:30 AM. Contributions in her memory may be made to the Breast Cancer Alliance, https://breastcanceralliance.org, or Fox Chase Cancer Center, https://www.foxchase.org
