IRENE CICHOCKI ROSNER: Age 93, of Greenfield, passed away in her home Friday, February 3, 2023. Beloved wife of 70 years to the late Eugene, mother of Candi (Stuart) Shapiro of Oil City, grandmother of Justin and Robert of Pittsburgh and Brandon of Washington, D. C., aunt of Alina Green of Pittsburgh and Elizabeth DeSantis of Florida. Her family would like to thank Bernadette Lovett, Karmen Griffin, Jeanine Clay, Tracy Pennix, and Theresa Germany for the care and kindness they provided as her caregivers. Born in Warsaw, Poland, in 1929, she fled what would become the Warsaw Ghetto at 10 years old and spent the Holocaust in hiding and on the run using false documents that provided her a non-Jewish name. After World War II, she emigrated to Pittsburgh and graduated from Taylor Allderdice High School before marrying fellow Holocaust survivor Eugene in 1950, with whom she ran Gene's Food Market in South Oakland at Kennett Square and Ophelia Street. Services at Ralph Schugar Chapel, Inc., 5509 Centre Avenue, Shadyside on Wednesday, February 8, 2023 at 12 Noon. Visitation one hour prior to services (11 AM - 12 Noon). Entombment Beth Shalom Cemetery.
