ROSENTHAL, Helen Stephanie (nee BLACK) Died peacefully on August 19, 2017 at the Toronto Grace Health Centre, of pancreatic cancer. Loving daughter of the late Ruth (Schwartz) Black and the late Joseph Black. Dear sister to Barbara D'Amaddio (John Foley) and Spencer Black (Pam Fornell). Dearly beloved mother of Alan (Ellen Mole), Jeffrey (Margaret Fulford) and Michael (Shayna Szymkowicz). Proud grandmother of Jeremy Trainor, Aaron Trainor and Julian Star Rosenthal. Helen was born and raised in New York City and studied at Flushing High School, Queens College and the University of Michigan. She taught mathematics to many thousands of students at the University of Toronto Scarborough and was a strong and active participant in the Faculty Association. Helen had a wonderful passion for life and loved to spend time with family and friends. She was an avid squash and tennis player for many years and embraced a very active and stimulating lifestyle. Upon retiring, Helen was overjoyed to delve deeper into the many activities that she enjoyed, including going to concerts, films and theatre productions, playing in weekly bridge games and immersing herself in the diverse cultural scenes of Toronto. Helen was known for her radiant smile and vivacious personality, both clear indicators of a satisfying and contented life, full of love and joy. She will be deeply missed by all those who loved her. The family would like to thank all of the medical staff who provided compassionate care to Helen and thoughtful support to her loved ones. An open drop-in memorial reception will be held on Sunday, September 10th. Drop in any time between 1:00 and 6:00 p.m. at 21 Dale Avenue in Toronto (you may check in at the concierge desk if you require directions to the apartment). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made, in Helen's name, to an educational, social or health charity of your choice.
