Rose Weinstein, who was active in Hadassah and other Jewish community organizations, died yesterday at her Northwest Baltimore home after a long illness. She was 85.
Services will be held at 11 a.m. tomorrow at the Sol Levinson & Bros. funeral establishment, 6010 Reisterstown Road.
Born in Virginia, the former Rose Morris moved to Baltimore with her family as a child. She graduated from Western High School.
She was a secretary for real estate businesses and operated a women's clothing store on West North Avenue for several years before her marriage to Joseph Weinstein in 1943.
She was a member of the Beth El Congregation Sisterhood and a former member the Chizuk Amuno Sisterhood -- synagogues where her husband had been executive director.
Mrs. Weinstein was a former Hadassah chapter president and general board member. She delivered oral book reviews at meetings of Hadassah and other organizations -- reports that were so detailed that "people sitting there told her it was like reading the book," her husband said.
Surviving, in addition to her husband of 47 years, are two daughters, Judith Feldman and Ellen M. Landes, both of Baltimore; and six grandchildren.
The family suggested donations to Hadassah.
