Rozann Feldheim Obituary
October 14, 2017 Rozann (Rosie) Feldheim, age 74, passed away peacefully at her home on October 14, 2017. She is survived by her beloved husband of 51 years, Richard, children John, Robby and Tracey Lee (Whitt), two grandchildren, Amanda and Robby, a niece and nephew, cousins and literally hundreds of friends. In 1961, Rosie entered the University of Arizona where she met the love of her life, Richard. In 1963, she transferred to USC from which she graduated in 1965 with a degree in education. She and Richard married in 1966 at her parents' home in Beverly Hills. After a honeymoon traveling Europe on $5 a day, Rosie and Richard returned to Tucson where he was attending law school and where Rosie taught third grade at Catalina Foothills School. They moved to New York City in 1967, where she also taught third grade. Her first child, John, was born in 1969. In 1970 their second child, Robby, was born and soon after they moved to Richard's home town of Maplewood, New Jersey. Rosie was an incredibly active person who began teaching aerobics in New Jersey in 1971, and ultimately became an instructor's instructor. Their third child, Tracey, was born in 1974. After moving to Phoenix in 1978, Rosie continued to teach aerobics. Rosie, in addition to her aerobics classes, hiked the Grand Canyon many times, both with and without Richard, regularly hiked Camelback Mountain and Piestewa Peak, hiked across England with a friend leaving Richard at home to take care of the children, was a volunteer at the Musical Instrument Museum and the Arizona Historical Society, traveled to Israel with a group from Congregation Beth Israel in 2010, visited Jamaica, Hawaii, Costa Rica, Ireland and Scotland. In 1996, the Feldheims bought a home in Hailey, Idaho, which she completely "Rosiefied" meaning filled with vibrant colors, flowers and more flowers, Pierre Deux, ruffles and laces, all which Rosie loved and showed her zest for life. Rosie never had an unkind word to say about anyone and was constantly upbeat. To know Rosie was to love her, and as her family and legion of friends will testify, she returned that love in spades. Simply stated, mere words are impossible to properly convey just how wonderful Rosie was, and how greatly she will be missed. Those she leaves behind are comforted by the knowledge that her memory and her smile will be with them forever. A Memorial Service was held at Congregation Beth Israel on October 19, 2017.
