Rosamond Einstein, a homemaker, died Monday at the Gilchrist Hospice Care of complications of a fall she suffered earlier this month. She was 94 and lived in Towson.

Born Rosamond Cecilia Dyer in Baltimore and raised on Bateman Avenue, she was the only child of real estate developer Frank Dyer. She was a 1935 graduate of St. Joseph's High School in Emmitsburg. She earned a bachelor of arts in history at the College of Notre Dame in 1939.

She married Jacob Einstein Jr., a newspaper editor and radio station operator, in 1942. They resided in Catonsville and Baltimore until 1956 when they moved to Denton, where Mr. Einstein edited the Caroline County newspaper, now the Times-Record.

"My mother had an innate piety, a strong sense of fairness and mercy," said her son, Timothy Einstein of Sterling, Va. "She was always opening her house to others and taking in youngsters who were at risk and were troubled. She taught us to lead a good life by being generous to other people."

Mrs. Einstein was an amateur photographer and she used a small camera to record her family. She was also an accomplished cook and was regularly guided by "The Joy of Cooking."

A memorial Mass was held Friday at St. Mark's Roman Catholic Church in Catonsville.

In addition to her son, survivors include three other sons, David Einstein of Annapolis, Jacob Einstein of Salisbury and Damian Einstein of Potomac; three daughters, Cassandra Collier of Baltimore, Rose Einstein of Los Angeles and Mimi Husser of Frederick; 13 grandchildren; and 11 great-grandchildren. Her marriage ended in divorce.
