KENT: On Friday, January 16, 2015, age 93, Eva Rose Kent passed away peacefully at home in the presence of her children, Dr. Georgia L. Kent of Mt. Lebanon and Lenard W. Kent of Washington, D.C. Eva was the loving wife for 56 years of the late Harry J. Kent and is predeceased by her parents Dr. Hugo Hauser and Hedwig (Oppenheim) Hauser and her sisters Ilse (Hauser) Perlman and Gerda (Hauser) Herzlinger. Eva is also survived by her three nieces, Karla Perlman of Brooklyn, N.Y., Norma Herzlinger of Wayland, Mass., and Dr. Doris Herzlinger of New York, N.Y., and nephew David Perlman of Los Angeles Calif. A resident of Mt. Lebanon and a member of Temple Emanuel of South Hills for 50 years, Eva was born in Vienna, Austria, in 1921. The entire Hauser family fled to England in 1939 to escape the Nazis where they found sanctuary while waiting for their visas to the United States. They arrived in New York City in 1941 where Eva re-met Harry Kent, a childhood classmate from Vienna whose family had also fled to the United States. They married in 1946 and moved to the New Jersey suburbs in 1953. They relocated to Mt. Lebanon in 1964. Although the Nuremberg laws prevented Eva from attending and finishing high school in Vienna, Eva enrolled in fine arts classes at Columbia University. She used this training to develop and teach arts and crafts classes for children at the YMHA of Hackensack, N.J. Then, after moving to Mt. Lebanon she created the arts program for the Mt. Lebanon Recreation Department Summer Day Camp, which she managed for several years during the 1960s and early 1970s. Eva obtained certification as a professional translator in 1978 and maintained active membership in the American Translators Association through 1991. She was the technical translator for a German engineering firm until retiring in the mid-1980s. She also created the first German technical translation certification curriculum for the University of Pittsburgh, which was originally offered in the German department’s graduate degree program. Eva continued to teach these courses for several years after retiring from her full time translation position. A memorial service was held on Monday, January 19, 2015 at at Temple Emanuel of South Hills. Burial was private. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions in Eva Kent’s name be made to the Diskin Music Fund of Temple Emanuel of South Hills, The South Hills Interfaith Ministry or the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.
