  • Notes 
    • Rosenberg, Ruth Mayer, 94, a long-time resident of Alton, IL died Wednesday the 16th of September at Rosewood Care Center.
      Ruth was born on December 24, 1920 in Niederhochstadt, Germany. She immigrated to the United States from Germany in 1936, at age 15, in the wake of anti-Jewish sentiment. She graduated from Soldan High School at age 17. She married William Wolfgang Rosenberg in 1941 and they raised three children.
      For 25 years, she owned and operated Lee Anne Shop, a women's clothing shop in downtown Alton. Ruth took great pleasure in her years volunteering for multiple area service organizations, including: the Alton-Wood River Zonta Club, Beverly Farms and The Caravan Shop.
      Ruth was an expert bridge player, theater enthusiast, accomplished baker, devoted mother, and a hands-on grandmother and great-grandmother.
      She will be greatly missed by her three children: Kenneth Rosenberg (Peggy) of Ft. Myers, FL; Richard Rosenberg (Rosemary) of Naperville, IL; and Nancy Borenstein (David) of Buffalo Grove, IL. She is survived also by her grandchildren: Daniel, Megan, Benjamin, Joshua and Zachary. She has three great-grandchildren.
      She is preceded in death by her husband, William, sister, Lucy Lopata and her granddaughter, Katie Rose.
      Graveside service Friday, September 18th, 11:00 AM at Beth Hamedrosh Hagodol Cemetery,
