Lotte Rosenbaum was born in North Germany to Max & Sarah Ehrmann. She was the middle child between her sister Freida and brother Leon. In 1936, she and her family left Germany for New York City. Her father was very wise and realized that Germany was becoming dangerous for Jewish people in Germany so he contacted his brother Martin Ehrmann, who was a U. S. citizen, to help them leave. Martin sponsored all his brothers and sisters who were living in Germany so that they could come to the U. S. He saved many lives. Lotte spent a lot of her teenage years visiting and traveling with her Uncle Martin, his wife Rita and their 2 sons, Sandy and Herb. Lotte’s father worked as a furrier and at his job he met James Rosenbaum. James often visited the Ehrmann household. He fell in love with Lotte and when she was 18 years old he took her out on a date to see the movie Dumbo. He told her that he loved her and wanted to marry her. She told him that she didn’t know him well enough to love him and he said, “I love you enough for the two of us.” They were married less than a year later. They had 2 children, Walter and Miriam and were married for 43 years until James passed away. They traveled all over the world and made many trips to Israel to visit their son Walter, his wife Vicki and their children. Lotte was a wonderful, loving and supportive mother and wife. She was charming, kind, caring and beautiful. She enjoyed theater, classical music, reading, Ma Jong and Bridge. She was an optimist who always looked at the positive side of things. She stayed at home caring for her children until Miriam was in high school. She worked part time at a jewelry store and was an excellent sales person. The owner told her that they sold a lot more jewelry when she was there. Lotte had a long, good life and will be missed by all who knew her. Her last years were at Huron Woods, a very special memory care facility that has a wonderful culture of kindness. She appreciated that care and often commented on how well she was treated and how she liked being there. Her family would like to thank her caregivers and the administrative staff at Huron Woods. She is survived by her son Walter Rosenbaum, her daughter Miriam Weininger, 6 grandchildren: Yaffa (Boruch) Packer, Ruthie Shechter, Chezie (Tirtza) Rosenbaum, Baruch Rosenbaum, Alison Cox and Charlene (Frank) Licastro. She has 30 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great-grandchild. She was preceded in death by her siblings, Freida Fisher and Leon Ehrmann, daughter-in-law Vicki Rosenbaum, son-in-law Steven Weininger and second husband, Aaron Rubinstein.
