Anita Ruth Rosen was born in Far Rockaway, NY on July 14, 1926, and grew up in Brooklyn NY.  Anita was predeceased by her husband of 65 years, Bernie Rosen, and her brother, Jesse Greenberg. Surviving are her children: Jeffrey Rosen (Carol), Seth Rosen (Melinda), and Lise Howard (Bill); eight grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; and two nieces and a nephew. She was a devoted daughter and sister, a wonderful wife, and a great mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.

Anita graduated from Pratt Institute, Brooklyn NY with a degree in Fine Art.  She then worked as a medical illustrationist until marriage.  After living in Pawhuska and Tulsa OK, she and Bernie settled down in Little Silver where they raised their three children.  It is also where she raised her beloved Great Dane, Claudius. They summered in Far Rockaway beach, where she was happiest.  While raising her family, she was also very involved in charitable work, especially with the New Jersey Federation of Women’s Clubs.  She was a member of the NJFWC for over 50 years, and held several important offices within the organization. 

Anita will be fondly remembered for her open-hearted spirit and the generous donation of her time and artistry throughout her entire life. 

There will be no services.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Anita Rosen’s name to the NJ Federation of Women’s Clubs, 55 Labor Center Way, New Brunswick, NJ 08901.  Thompson Memorial Home, Red Bank, has been entrusted with the arrangements.
