Roslyn Witty (formerly Stone), died December 31, 2018. She was born on May 10, 1925 in Springfield Massachusetts. She grew up in Worcester and after her marriage to Leonard Witty she lived in New Rochelle, New York which is also where she raised her son Richard.

She also worked as a bookkeeper in her husband's business selling baby clothes. Later she lived in Boynton Beach Florida where her husband died in 1995 . In her later years she moved back North first to Longmeadow then Greenfield.

Though a petite person Roslyn had an outsize personality. She could be a loyal friend and stood up against any injustice done to those close to her. She always said exactly what she thought. She had much more energy at eighty than people much younger.

She was a loving mother and grandmother to Elisha (Eli) and Sam Witty. She felt particularly blessed when she became a great grandmother and meeting her first great grandchild Menachem Mendel was she said, one of the high points of her life. Unfortunately she never met her great granddaughter Dvora Lea.
