Evelyn Rosenberg Engelberg


ENGELBERG: Evelyn Rosenberg Engelberg, took her last breath at sunrise on July 30, 2018, in her home surrounded by her loving family. Loving, generous and devoted mother, wife, sister, aunt, “Bubbie,” great-grandmother and friend. Beloved by all who came to know her, she radiated love and wit and showed sincere interest in people’s lives. Born in 1920 in the Bronx, she was raised by her loving parents Maurice Aaron and Elise Rosenberg in a warm Yiddishe family with her sister Harriet Rosenberg Mallin. Together with the love of her life and husband of 60 years, “Chaim Dovid,” Evelyn gave generously of her time, energy and philanthropy to many Jewish causes locally, nationally and in Israel, especially Technion. She was an active member of Young People’s Synagogue since its founding, and sent all her kids to Hillel Academy. She was a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh. Evelyn was a published author and poet — her pen name was Eva B. Moses. Her favorite expressions included: “As long as the kids are healthy,” “Zei gezunt un shtark,” and “L’Chaim!” Evelyn was an avid bridge player, loved to sing and dance with her husband and enjoyed beach walks with the family in La Jolla, California, where she spent many winters. Known for her open heart and hospitality, she always had room for one more at the table. Evelyn is survived by her children: Mimi Hein and her husband Peter, Roz Becker, Sheri Sable, Marcy Rubin and her husband Bob, and Moshe Engelberg and his wife Dana Parnes; along with her grandchildren, Jon Hein and his wife Debbie, Kevin Hein and his wife Melissa, Abby Benny, Jonas Becker, Shana Sable, Becky Sable and her husband Osamah, Leba Sable and her her husband Juan, Jake Rubin, Emily Rubin, Alyssa Engelberg and her husband Guillermo, Jessa, Ben and Hana Engelberg, Arielle and Eli Parnes-Katz; and great-grandchildren Rachel and Emily Hein, and Danny and Cari Hein.
