“She was active in Jewish organizations, enjoyed playing bridge and loved her family,” said her daughter Hildie Newman.

Mrs. Buchalter was born on Nov. 21, 1920, in Poland. She graduated high school and attended two years of college before the Nazis occupied the country.

Rose and two of her sisters were on the last train heading east out of Skola, Poland. Her parents and other siblings were rounded up and killed within the next few days.

Rose and her sisters ended up in Uzbekistan, where they worked on collective farms.

She married Morton Buchalter on March 25, 1946, in Uzbekistan. The couple then went to a DP camp in Austria.

They arrived in the US by way of New Orleans, and immigration officials encouraged them to come to Denver. The couple arrived in Denver with their two young children in 1952.

Mrs. Buchalter, who spoke five languages, was the principal and teacher at the JCC preschool for several years. She retired in 1970.

Mr. Buchalter passed away on Aug. 14, 1989.

Mrs. Buchalter is survived by her daughter Hildie (Ralph Costantini) Newman of Denver; grandchildren David (Marie El Makinano) Newman, Joanna (Michael) McFarland and Jessica (Courtney Cuff) Newman; and great-grandchildren Jackson and Samuel McFarland.

She was predeceased by her son Eugene Buchalter on Sept. 26, 1976.
