Roslyn Hersh Samuels, 104, of Monroe Township died June 12, 2020. Born in Philadelphia, she was raised by her parents, Ben and Anna Hersh, in the Hersh Carlton, a hotel that they owned in Atlantic City.
In 1934 she left Atlantic City to attend college at Penn State University. It was there that she met her husband, Bernard Samuels, moving in 1938 with him to Pittsburgh and to its suburbs in 1942. In 1950 they were among the six founding families who began Temple Emanuel of South Hills. She became president of the South Hills chapter of Hadassah; a Brownie troop leader; and a committed volunteer at The Chartiers Community Mental Health Center. Later in her life she moved to Monroe Township, with the extended Hersh family gathering at a beach home in Margate during the summers.
Predeceased by her husband, Bernard, and a daughter, Joan, she is survived by a daughter, Barbara (Robert) Weinberg of Mountainside; two grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.
