ENGELBERG, EVELYN ROSENBERG: Took her last breath at sunrise on July 30, 2018, in her home surrounded by her loving family. Loving, generous, and devoted mother, wife, sister, aunt, "Bubbie", great-grandmother, and friend. Beloved by all who came to know her, she radiated love and wit and showed sincere interest in people's lives. Born in 1920 in the Bronx, she was raised by her loving parents Maurice Aaron and Elise Rosenberg in a warm Yiddishe family with her sister Harriet Rosenberg Mallin. Together with the love of her life and husband of 60 years "Chaim Dovid," Evelyn gave generously of her time, energy, and philanthropy to many Jewish causes locally, nationally, and in Israel, especially Technion. She was an active member of Young People's Synagogue since its founding, and sent all her kids to Hillel Academy. She was a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh. Evelyn was a published author and poet - her pen name was Eva B. Moses. Her favorite expressions included: "As long as the kids are healthy," "Zei gezunt un shtark," and "L,Chaim!" Evelyn was an avid bridge player, loved to sing and dance with her husband and enjoyed beach walks with the family in La Jolla, California, where she spent many winters. Known for her open heart and hospitality, she always had room for one more at the table. Evelyn is survived by her children: Mimi Hein and her husband Peter, Roz Becker, Sheri Sable, Marcy Rubin and her husband Bob, and Moshe Engelberg and his wife Dana Parnes; along with her grandchildren, Jon Hein and his wife Debbie, Kevin Hein and his wife Melissa, Abby, Benny, Jonas Becker, Shana Sable, Becky Sable and her husband Osamah, Leba Sable and her husband Juan, Jake Rubin, Emily Rubin, Alyssa Engelberg and her husband Guillermo, Jessa, Ben, and Hana Engelberg, Arielle and Eli Parnes-Katz; and great-grandchildren Rachel and Emily Hein, and Danny and Cari Hein. May she rest in peace and may her spirit soar to celestial heights in glorious Gan Eden. Services at Ralph Schugar Chapel, Inc., 5509 Centre Avenue, Shadyside on Tuesday at 10 AM.

Knowing the Englebergs as I grew up at YPS is a great memory for me.
Mrs. Engleberg as I have always know her was an elegant woman whose smile always lit up the room! She will be missed. Condolences to the entire family!
