Farewell to Rose
Rose Finkelstein, age 101, passed away last night. She seemed to be an everlasting presence at our hospital, spending over 50 years in one capacity or another. She came here as a young nurse. After retirement, she volunteered in our obstetrics department, where she was particularly known for singing to the babies. Each year, she would win the award for most hours worked as a volunteer -- 629 hours in 2004, 650 hours in 2005. In 2004, we created an award in her name, The Rose Award, established to recognize a volunteer’s steadfast commitment to service. Rose was a sweet, kind, generous person -- with a voice to match! We join those lucky babies who had a chance to hear and know her.
