They opened a dry goods store on Jasper Avenue and 97th St. Their daughter Shirley Leah was born in 1928. They eventually moved to the South side, where they ran a business called Service Department Store. Rose was a founding member of Edmonton Pioneer Women and a member of the Magen David Club for 50 years, which raised funds for Talmud Torah.
