Jeanette G. Rosenfeld Obituary
September 25, 1913 - July 20, 2017 Jeanette Rosenfeld passed away peacefully at the age of 103 on July 20th. The oldest child of Rose and Joseph Lamm, she was born in New York City and moved to Los Angeles when she was 6 growing up in the Echo Park and Silverlake communities. She graduated from Belmont High School. In 1936 she married David Zelinger (deceased 1975) with whom she had 2 loving sons, Dennis (deceased 2001) and Gerald. In 1967 she married Sam Rosenfeld (deceased 1972). When Jeanette wasn't raising her family, preparing delicious dinners and baking her famous crustless apple pie she was involved in PTA, community activities and charities. Along with her mother and sister, she was active in raising funds for Cedars of Lebanon-Mount Sinai Hopitals (now Cedars/Sinai) through their organization, Wilshire Juniors. When her children were grown she became an "associate" at Bullocks Wilshire, eventually becoming a buyer in women's wear. She continued her career with Bullocks Westwood in 1972 creating the position of "personal shopper" known by her patrons as "Ms. Jan." She also served on the Service Council at L.A.C.M.A. Jeanette had a deep interest in spirituality, philosophy and art, and attended many classes at U.C.L.A. extension and other centers of learning. She was a resident of Santa Monica until April of this year when she moved to the Jewish Home in Reseda. She was predeceased by her sister, Sarah Goldberg (2016) and brother, Nathanial [Nat] Lamm (1998). She is survived by her son Gerald Zelinger, brother Jule Lamm, granddaughter Jaime Berg and many nephews, nieces, grandnephews and nieces. Jeanette lived her life to the fullest almost to the end. She will always be remembered as a vivacious, loving, generous and caring person. We wish to thank Jewish Home for the Aging and Skirball Hospice for the loving care they provided Jeanette in her last few months. A celebration of her life will take place 11am, September 6th at Leo Baeck Temple, West Los Angeles.
