May 02, 2002

Ruth W. Rogasner, a homemaker and bridge life master, died of a stroke Monday at a nursing home in Sarasota, Fla. She was 82.

Mrs. Rogasner, formerly of Lochearn, had moved to Sarasota last year.

She was born and raised Ruth Weintraub in Philadelphia, and graduated from Olney High School there in 1936.

In 1941, she married Richard B. Rogasner, an industrial engineer who died in 1990.

She lived in Lynchburg, Va., before moving to Baltimore in 1955. During the late 1980s until retiring in 1995, she managed the Twin Tennis Club in Milford.

Mrs. Rogasner was an avid bridge player, and a life master of the American Contract Bridge League. She was also a dog lover.

Plans for a memorial service in Baltimore were incomplete yesterday.

Survivors include a son, William L. Rogasner of Dade City, Fla.; two daughters, Joan Stuckey of Sarasota and Marjorie Irons of Evanston, Ill.; a brother, Arthur Weintraub of Philadelphia; and seven grandchildren.
