Here lies
Rachel daughter of Eliezer haLevi.  
Died 9 Kisleiv 5797
May her soul be bound in the bonds of the living
DIED NOV. 24, 1955
Age 64 years

Rose Liebross was the second child of Louis and Bertha Liebross was born about 1889 in Radautz, Austrian Empire (today Radauti, Romania) and came to the United States in 1898 on the Britannic from Liverpool with her mother and seven brothers and sisters. [1] Her father had emigrated six months earlier. [2]

She is buried in Mount Lebanon Cemetery, Queens, New York in the Minsker Independent Benevolent Association plot, Block 101, Section 1, Subsection 11, Line 4, Grave 6. I do not know why she is the only Liebross buried in the Minsker plot. Nearly all the other members of her family are buried in the Workmen's Circle area of the cemetery. Her ex-husband, Dr. Nathan Bernstein, a dentist who died on 6 November 1937, was buried in a grave in the Workmen's Circle section. Rose had no children.
