Pearl Reiner Rosenbaum passed away on September 10th at age 96. She was born and raised in Brooklyn NY, the daughter of Mae (Dembicer) and Meyer Reiner. She grew up as an ardent Brooklyn Dodgers and Frank Sinatra fan. She was a 1948 graduate of Brooklyn College and later earned a Master's Degree in Education. She married Harry Rosenbaum in 1953 and they moved to Stamford, CT in 1957 where she worked as a real estate agent for 40 years until she retired at age 90. Pearl was proud of her independent lifestyle including driving until she was 93 and living in her beautiful home until she was 95, where she and her husband Harry raised their five children. She enjoyed working out at the gym well into her 90's, boasting an impressive two-minute plank and a kettle bell workout. Pearl could be found reading the New York Times every day and enjoyed going to and taking her grandchildren to Broadway shows, walking two miles in her neighborhood daily, and cooking her famous brisket for holiday meals.
