Monsey, NY, October 25, 2011 --( On Saturday, September 10, 2011 on a quiet street in Monsey, N.Y., an unassuming Rose Grossberg nee Horowitz celebrated her astounding 100th birthday at Northern Metropolitan Skilled Nursing facility in Monsey. The celebration began on Saturday, with a party for family and friends will be on Sunday, September 11, 2011.

Rose Grossberg was born in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn, N.Y. on September 10, 1911. Born to Russian Immigrants, Rose’s father served in the Russian Czars Army and her mother was from a family of Jewish mercantiles. Rose was the second of seven children and was the eldest daughter, therefore making her responsible for her younger siblings. In 1934 Rose married and subsequently in 1935 gave birth to her only child, a boy named Stanley whom she raised as a single mother. Rose was a strong woman who always did her best to provide what she could for her only son.

“Times were tough, but I always remember my mother was able to put food on the table,” recalls Stanley. In 1958 Rose was involved in a near fatal auto accident in where she was ejected from her vehicle through the windshield and left in critical condition for three days. Although she suffered a concussion, fractured ribs and elbow and multiple stitches, Rose survived, as did her spirit and charm. Throughout the years, Rose maintained an independent and nurturing lifestyle, prepared to give and unchanged by the challenges faced with throughout her life.

Rose currently resides at Northern Metropolitan, a home that provides nursing and therapy.
