Carole Block Rosenberg, 84, died at home Saturday, Sept. 14, 2019. She was a native of Newport News and lived in Virginia Beach.

She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 63 years, Monte Z. Rosenberg.

She is survived by her three children and their spouses, Jo Rosenberg (Shari Strader), Paul Rosenberg (Stefan Rosenberg) and Lesley Rosenberg. She is also survived by her beloved grandchildren, Elizabeth Rosenberg (Joe Levy) and Jacob Rosenberg (Hannah St. Lifer); sister, Linda Reitzes (Richard Reitzes); Roz Weinstein; and several devoted nieces and nephews.

Carole had strong friendships that she treasured and maintained for decades. She was passionate about her career as a therapist for over 35 years and loved her patients dearly. She faced life with humor and unfiltered truth — like it or not.

Immediately following the service at the funeral home and burial in Forest Lawn Cemetery, the family will be at the home of Jo Rosenberg and Shari Strader for the Meal of Condolence.
