In memory of Annette Birnbaum

I wanted  to create a fundraiser in memory of Grandma that she would appreciate. As a single mother of four children I thought we could help JF&CS with kits that would be helpful to other families struggling. Please consider donating in her memory! 

 

 

Annette Rosillio (Rothman) Birnbaum March 16, 2021 Annette (Rosilio) Rothman Birnbaum, formerly of Syracuse, NY, died Tuesday, March 16th in Baltimore, MD. She was 94. Annette was predeceased by two loving husbands, Norman Rothman in 1965 and Armin Birnbaum in 2003, as well as her brother Morris and sisters Aimee and Hortense. Annette was born and raised in Marrakech, Morocco. She was the eldest of seven surviving children born to Solika and Yehoshua Rosilio of blessed memory. She met her first husband Norman while he was stationed in Ben Guerir serving in the United States Air Force. Annette subsequently lived on military bases in Florida, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Japan during Norman's service, where the family was very involved in each local Jewish community and active in outreach for Jewish service members. Annette settled in Norman's hometown of Syracuse following his untimely passing. She later re-married to Armin, who helped raise her four children as his own. Annette first utilized her exquisite sewing skills working as a seamstress, but soon employed her fluency in French as a typist for Onondaga Community College's Foreign Languages Department, a position she held for 22 years. She found joy in retirement caring for her granddaughter and cooking incredible Shabbat and holiday meals for her family. Her final years were spent in Baltimore where her daughter and grandchildren visited regularly and she was blessed to know so many of her great-grandchildren. Annette is survived by her son Mayer Rothman of Syracuse, NY; three daughters, Rachel Rothman of Cicero, NY, Debra (Allan) Kessler of Baltimore, MD, and Ruth (Jeffrey) Rothman of Thornhill, ON; one sister, Rina Kadoch of Bat Yam, Israel; two brothers, Eli (Tziona) Rosilio and Daniel (Devorah) Rosilio of Bat Yam, Israel; 13 beloved grandchildren; and 37 (yes, 37!) precious great-grandchildren.
