The Detroit News, Detroit, Michigan - July 6, 2001

Rona Moscow, a 66-year-old Bloomfield Hills woman who worked with the elderly and the poor, died Tuesday, July 3, 2001, at her home from cancer.

Mrs. Moscow was born in Detroit and graduated from Central High School.  She received a bachelor's degree in English from the University of Michigan in 1956, the same year she married Cyril Moscow.  She added a master's in English from Wayne State University and taught school.

"She was very much a people person, which was reflected in the kind of work she did," said daughter Karen Moscow-Averbach.

Mrs. Moscow was an education manager for Cooperative Services in Southfield, where she helped build and maintain low-income housing for the elderly for 15 years.

In addition to her husband and daughter, she is survived by another daughter, Ruth Moscow-Cohe, son Daniel and four grandchildren.

A funeral was held Thursday at the Ira Kaufman Chapel in Southfield, with burial at Adat Shalom Memorial Park in Livonia.
