More than 50 friends and family attended. Here, Rosoff is surrounded by her three children, seven of her grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. 

Rosoff, née Kosky, was born in the Bronx, New York; her parents emigrated separately from what is now Poland. She married Carl Rosoff in 1936 and spent much of her adult life in Rome, New York. She worked in the insurance trade and also served as president of Congregation Adas Israel in Rome. She retired in 1983; her husband passed away a year later. She remained in Rome until the 1990s and was active in many ways but especially as a member of the Happy Hoofers, a senior dance troupe. At the age of 80 she moved to Delray Beach, Florida, where she continued to dance and perform. She also traveled often to visit family in Alaska, New Mexico and Walpole, Massachusetts. In November she relocated to Massachusetts.
