Biographical NoteReturn to Top

The donor's uncle, Joseph David Goldstein, married Sarah Cohl. Cohl was born to Jenne Shane (of Seattle) and Harry Cohl (from England). Harry moved from England, married Shane and operated a store in Everett. There were 35 Jewish families living there at the time. Sarah was born on 1 July 1928 in Everett. After services on Friday nights the men from the town would go watch boxing matches and Harry would often take Sarah. Rapaport only knew of one relative, a cousin named Rudy who lived in Seattle and worked as a Boeing Engineer. His family are buried in a Jewish cemetery in Seattle. Sarah graduated Bellingham High School in 1946 and later moved to Seattle where she attended the UW for a few semesters. She eventually moved to New York and married Goldstein. They remained in New York for the rest of her life. They had no children. Dictated by Steve Rapaport to Archivist, Eileen Price on 11/4/2016.
