Rona Goldstein, 85, passed away on Sunday, April 9, 2023.
She was predeceased in death by her husband of 61 years, Harold Goldstein, in 2014. Together they had three children, Jerri Goldstein (Carol), Audrey Goldstein Panu and Marc Goldstein. She also has three grandchildren, Jessica Taylor (John), Samantha Panu and Sophia Goldstein-Akman (Yavuz) and one great-grandson, Ezra Taylor. In addition, she is survived by her brother, Michael Paul (Carmela) and many nieces and nephews, including Jacquelyn Orr (Rich) who dedicated many years to taking care of Rona.
Among her favorite things were spending time with family, eating a good bagel with whitefish salad, growing award-winning orchids and her evening routine of sitting on the bench with Harold feeding their koi fish. Rona dedicated much of her time to the Southeastern Pennsylvania Orchid Society (SEPOS), where she met many of her closest and dearest friends. She loved seeing everyone's hard work blossom at events and would spend hours in her greenhouse nurturing her plants.
Graveside services will be held at 1 p.m., Friday, April 14, 2023 at Beth Israel Cemetery, 255 Water Works Road, Coatesville, PA 19320.
In her memory and in lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Southeastern Pennsylvania Orchid Society, a 501c3 foundation, in Rona's memory, www.sepos.org.
