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.
