Rose L. Kornblatt, a former teacher in Baltimore's public schools, died Sept. 4 at her Park Heights Avenue home after a heart attack. She was 85.
Services for Miss Kornblatt were conducted Monday.
Born in Baltimore, Miss Kornblatt attended public schools and graduated in 1924 from Western High School. She then continued her education at the Maryland State Normal School, known today as Towson State University. She graduated in 1926 and began her teaching career with the Baltimore school system that year, retiring in 1968.
"She spent most of her career at School No. 20 at Federal and Eden streets, teaching second and third grades," recalled Minnie Hettleman, a friend since 1923. "She loved the school and the children, and taught them an appreciation not only for art, but life as well."
She is survived by a cousin, Susan Grosser of McLean, Va.
