Rosalee June (Mandell) Jaeger passed away peacefully on April 1, 2021, surrounded by her loving family, while feeling the presence and love of so many relatives and friends that cared so deeply about her.
Rosalee was born to Harry and Faye Mandell on June 29, 1934, in Detroit, Michigan. Education was very important in the Mandell family, and brothers Jerry, Seymour, and Billy, were extremely successful. Rosalee also excelled and graduated from High School as the valedictorian. After convincing her parents to let her go to college, she matriculated to the prestigious University of Michigan, where she studied English, and won the Hopwood Award in literature.
After graduating, she moved to Los Angeles to attend UCLA whereby she obtained a teaching credential and became a High School teacher.
During this time, she met her soulmate Martin, and they began a love affair that blossomed and became better and better throughout their 64-year marriage.
She was a teacher, a paralegal, a published author, a softball coach, an avid tennis player and golfer, loved working on crossword puzzles and sudoku, enjoyed card games such as bridge and pinocle, and was playing
golf with her children and grandchildren as recently as three months ago.
Perhaps most importantly, Rosalee stood for compassion, love, and caring about all people, fighting for the little guy and against prejudice, and donating her time to charities. She was moral, ethical, honest, and put everyone else first.
Rosalee is survived by her wonderful husband Martin, her children Stuart, Susan, and Alan, her daughter in law Karen who she considered a daughter, and her grandchildren Zachary, Hanna, Harrison, and Evan.
