She also leaves behind her feline buddy, Summer, as well as extended family and friends, particularly those whom she loved at The Haven at North Hills. Rochelle had a long and devoted career in food service at The Children’s Institute in Squirrel Hill. She deeply loved all the children she served there and they responded in kind. Rochelle also cared immensely about animals. She especially enjoyed when folks would bring various animals to visit at The Haven at North Hills. A passionate fan of our Pittsburgh Pirates, Steelers, and Penguins, she always donned her sports gear at game time, with her team paraphernalia close at hand. Some special moments in Rochelle’s life include the time that she was in the presence of Sidney Crosby; the day she met Willie Stargell; and the experience of being photographed with singer Ella Fitzgerald. A graveside service was held at Machzikei Hadas Cemetery, located at 904 Geyer Rd. in Reserve Township near Millvale.
