Janet Rosenblatt, age 96, passed away on Friday, May 13, 2016, at Brookdale Wekiva Springs in Apopka. A native of Buffalo, New York, Mrs. Rosenblatt was born on April 6, 1920, to the late Otto A. and Rose Weintraub Siegel. She was the widow of the late Richard H. Rosenblatt, to whom she was married for more than 72 years when he passed away in 2012. Prior to relocating to the Orlando area in 1995, the family lived in Buffalo, where Mrs. Rosenblatt worked as a site manager for a senior assisted living facility. She was also president of their synagogue’s sisterhood. Following their move they affiliated with Congregation of Reform Judaism. In Orlando, Mrs. Rosenblatt was able to hone her skills as an avid and accomplished golf player.

Following her husband’s death, Mrs. Rosenblatt relocated to Oakmonte to be closer to her daughter and family. There she was voted “Mrs. Oakmonte” due, in large part, to her vivacious and outgoing personality.

Mrs. Rosenblatt is survived by her son, Gary (Elaine) Rosenblatt of Famington Hills, Mich.; and her daughter, Lynne (Arnold) Sherman of Longwood. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Brian (Robin) Rosenblatt, Lorie (Ronald) Lieberman, Eric (Elizabeth) Fingeret, Marci (Eric) Heitner, Aaron (Jennifer) Sherman, Michael (Ilana) Sherman and Adam Sherman; and her great-grandchildren Zachary, Madeline, Jared, Hannah, Emma, Ben, Lily, Becher, Seth, Michelle and Logan.
