Veterans Funeral Care Rose Cantor

Rose Ellen Cantor, longtime resident of Gulfport, Florida, passed away at the age of 87 on Monday, May 26, 2008.

Rose was a trailblazer as a career woman; she worked for the Sarah Coventry Jewelry Company as a district manager for the New England Territory, and was also a headhunter for the employment firm of Snellig and Snelling in Connecticut. After she retired, she enjoyed launching new products as a supermarket demonstrator.

Her mission in life was to unite and stand by her family. She was married for 65 years to William Abraham Cantor, who died on July 10, 2007. Rose was devoted to her identical twin sons, Philip and Franklin, and her youngest son, James, and she joyfully celebrated the lives of her nine grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. Her family and friends will always remember her playful sense of humor. She would have appreciated leaving this life on Memorial Day, as she used to say on her way to the emergency room, “I’ll do anything to get attention.”

She will be cremated, in accordance with her wishes; but, “Please”, she told her family, “make sure I’m dead first…”

There will never be another Rose.
