Rose Appel

December 19, 2013

Rose Appel, 92, formerly of Brooklyn, died Thursday, December 19, 2013 at Ten Broeck Commons Nursing Home. Born in Toronto, Canada, she was a daughter of the late Joseph & Yochevet Scheinwald Silverstein. Rose came to the United States in 1943, when she married her husband, Carl Appel. While raising their three children, she assisted Carl in his insurance business. She was a singer, dancer, and wonderful pianist, a delightful hostess and cook; she was a great ice skater and game lover; she was a Yiddishist, and as an observant Jew, kept a kosher kitchen, always celebrating the Jewish holidays in her home with her extended family. In the domain of positive determination and willfulness, she was an example to all. Rose is survived by her husband, Carl Appel of Yonkers, and three children: Joseph Appel and his wife Patricia of Woodstock, David Appel and his wife Sally Fillmore of Montclair, NJ, and Sharon Appel of Marblehead, MA; five grandchildren, Naomi, Jonathan, Jacob, Elizabeth and Julia, as well as many nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents, two sisters, Doris & Esther Silverstein and one brother, Max Stein, predeceased Rose. A graveside service was held at Beth David Cemetery in Elmont, NY, on Friday, December 20, 2013, officiated by Rabbi Zoe Zak. Contributions in Rose's name may be made to United Jewish Appeal & Alzheimer's Association (alz.org).
