Helen J. (Jacobus) Rosenburgh


Former Rome, NY, resident Helen J. (Jacobus) Rosenburgh of Holliston, MA, 105, died on Sunday, June 12, 2022, with her family by her side in Natick, MA.

Helen was born December 2, 1916, to Sara (Watson) and Louis Jacobus. Helen was the beloved wife of the late Robert A. Rosenburgh, and the devoted mother of James R. Rosenburgh (Mary Cameron) of Elyria OH, and Julie R. Janisko (Jerome) of Holliston MA. She was the sister of the late Mabel B. Getbehead. She is survived by three grandchildren, William R. Janisko, Thomas J. Janisko, and Brian J. Rosenburgh (Cassie). She is survived by seven great-grandchildren, Avery Madore, Jonah and Sadie Janisko, Dylan and Tanner Janisko, Grayden and Jaxson Rosenburgh; and many nieces and nephews.

Helen enjoyed the outdoors and was an avid golfer. Her finest accomplishment was a hole in one at the Teugega Golf Club in Rome, NY. She worked for many years as a bookkeeper at Engelbert’s Jewelers in Rome. She and Bob retired to Myrtle Beach, SC where they enjoyed golf, the warm weather, and the company of many of their friends.

Helen was a faithful member of Zion Episcopal Church. Her long life allowed her to experience many changes in the world, but she always had faith and hoped for the best outcomes. Helen was always there for her family in times of need, providing help, love and care.

The family would like to thank the staff of the Birch Unit at Mary Ann Morse Healthcare in Natick MA for their kindness and loving care of her for the last four years.

Interment will take place at Rome Cemetery, Rome, NY, at a date yet to be determined.
