Selina Schoenfeld

April 17, 1992

Selina Schoenfeld, who taught in Baltimore public schools for over 30 years, died Wednesday of cancer at Johns Hopkins Hospital. The resident of Park Heights Avenue was 81.

Services for Mrs. Schoenfeld were being held today at Sol Levinson & Bros. funeral establishment, 6010 Reisterstown Road.

She retired in 1977 as a reading specialist at Cross Country Elementary School.

The former Selina Rabinowitz was a native of Baltimore and a graduate of Eastern High School and the teachers' college that is now Towson State University.

Her family said she had to overcome opposition by the college to her training for teaching because she walked with a limp and wore a brace on her left ankle as the result of a childhood bout with polio.

She started a breakfast program for poor children at the first school where she taught.

Her husband, Maurice Schoenfeld, died in 1964.

She is survived by two sons, Howard M. Schoenfeld of Pikesville and Bernard Schoenfeld of Emerson, N.J.; a daughter, Marilyn Rosenblatt of Pikesville; a brother Irving Robbins of Boca Raton, Fla.; a sister, Edie Sandler of Pikesville; and nine grandchildren.
