ROSENTHAL--Barbara, left this world too soon. She died suddenly on March 3rd while traveling in pursuit of one of her many passions - the opera. She loved art, ballet, the opera (especially Wagner's Ring Cycle), good food, fine wine and the entire animal kingdom. She is survived by loving cousins, dear friend, Judy Wolfe, her beautiful cat, Chaplin and step-dog, Benny. A celebration of Barbara's rich life will be held at 2pm, Sunday, April 10th at "The Riverside" 76th and Amsterdam. Donations can be made to the Central Park Zoo's Horticulture Department in her name.
