Pearl Haber (Rosenbaum) passed peacefully on Tuesday, February 9, 2021, age 88. Pearl was the devoted daughter of the late Miriam Elyanoff (Coltun) and Louis Rosenbaum. She was the beloved wife of the late Edward Louis Haber (died 2011) for 57 wonderful years. Pearl was the cherished mother of Annette (Larry) Moskovitz, Julie (Kirby) Christy, Carrie (Barry) Hollander and Jacqueline (Duane) Larson, loving grandmother of Rachel, Leah and Abby Christy, Jenna Hollander, Mitchell and Miranda Larson, great-grandmother of Bentley Bates, and aunt to Fran, Becky, and Larry Weiss. Pearl was born in Brooklyn, NY before moving to Pittsburgh as a teenager where she later met the love of her life, her husband, Lou. She is fondly remembered by her grandchildren as “Bubba.” Pearl was fiercely loving, protective, loyal, and unconditionally supportive of her family with a quick wit and great sense of humor. She enjoyed family vacations at the beach and the casinos in Las Vegas, Atlantic City and Pittsburgh. Pearl delighted her family with her legendary signature dessert, her New York-style cheesecake. In her younger years, Pearl enjoyed growing prize-winning roses. Before marriage, Pearl was responsible for the payrolls at the Yellow Cab Company and the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. After raising her children, Pearl returned to the workforce as an administrative assistant at PricewaterhouseCoopers. Pearl and her husband were long-time members of New Light Congregation in Squirrel Hill. Her warmth, loving spirit and sense of humor will be tremendously missed by all who knew her. In this time of Covid-19, there will be no visitation. Interment at Beth Shalom Cemetery will be private. A memorial service for Pearl will be held in the future. Donations may be made in Pearl’s name to the New Light Congregation (5915 Beacon St., Pittsburgh PA 15217) or Rodef Shalom Congregation (4905 Fifth Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15213).
