LIFLAND, Rosamond H
Rosamond Lifland passed away in Santa Barbara, CA on February 19th, 1999. Born Rosamond Fane Holmes on October 10th, 1899, in Three Bridges, NJ, she was the first recorded child in medical history to survive empyema. A person of great humor, she awoke from that operation (in which a rib was removed) and asked, "where is my husband?". (She was 11 years old at the time)
During WWII, she worked for the United States Army. She was one of the very first female executives at American Cyanamid, managing office related duties, as well as overseeing the operation of the printing rooms. Subsequently she went to work for Opinion Research, where she was the administrative assistant to the CEO and founder, Dr R Robertson. She achieved all this with a tenth grade education: however, she came one course short of graduating from Columbia University night school while caring for her only child.
She outlived two husbands: William S Affleck, who passed away in 1959 at age 72, with whom she had one daughter, Rosamond Jean; and Mortimer Lifland, who passed away in 1996 at age 101. She is survived by her daughter, five grandchildren (William Affleck-Asch, David Fretz, Susan Asch, Christopher Roehrs and Marjorie Lowe), three great grand children (Jenise Fretz, Leanne Fretz and Ian Affleck-Asch), and numerous friends.
Rosie's greatest attributes in life were her determination, wit, her "chin-up" attitude and her compassion for the ones she loved. We all will miss her so much. Friends will remember Rosamond by reminding themselves that, as she always said, "Life is what you make of it". She will be interred in the Holmes family plot in Fairview Cemetery, Westfield NJ.
