Andrea Gale Rosenstein, age 73, resident of Columbia, CT since 1972, passed away on July 11, 2018, in the Mansfield Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation in Storrs, after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s disease. Born in Philadelphia, Andrea was the oldest of three children to Rabbi Nathan and Miriam Levinson, formerly of Middletown and Tamarac, Florida.

She was the valedictorian of her high school in Patterson, New Jersey and went on to receive her undergraduate degree at Temple University, and then completed her graduate degree in education at the University of Connecticut. Andrea was an educator for over 30 years, teaching Title I reading at Horace W. Porter in Columbia and both French and Spanish at Windham High School in Willimantic. She was an avid reader, loved to cook, take walks along the shore at Crescent Beach in Niantic with her husband and treasured the adventure of travel.  Andrea will be remembered as a loving and doting wife, mother, sister, grandmother and a compassionate and endearing friend.

She is survived by Stanley, her loving and devoted husband of 50 years, her daughter Marcy Lechner (Michael) of Westfield, New Jersey, her son David (Mary Brosnan) of Brooklyn, New York and grandchildren Nathan, Madeline, Donovan and Emmett, brother Sid Levinson (Alice) and sister Judy Barlin (Wayne) and sisters-in-law Harriet Rosenstein, Sherry Rosenstein (Carlo Romano), and Judy Rosenstein (Paul Hoxie) along with many cousins, nieces and nephews.

The Rosenstein Family would like to extend their gratitude to the staff at the Mansfield Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation for their kind and dignified care. In memory of Andrea donations may be made to Mansfield Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation Recreation Fund, 100 Warren Circle, Storrs, CT 06268 or Columbia Volunteer Fire Department, 167 Route 66, Columbia, CT 06237. A graveside funeral service will be held at 12:00 Noon, Friday, July 13, 2018 at Columbia/Hebron Cemetery at the Junction of Routes 32 and 31 in Mansfield.
