Nancy Stolte Rosenfeld ’42

Nancy Stolte Rosenfeld ’42, September 28, 2008, at her recreation home in Long Beach, Washington. Nancy was a third-generation Portland resident. She attended Stanford and Reed, leaving college in 1940 to marry William W. Rosenfeld, who later served as a member of the board of trustees at Reed. Nancy was “the consummate caregiver” throughout her adult life-devoted to her mother, children, and extended family. She was a talented pianist, and enjoyed gardening, tennis, and travel with her husband. Her community service included that to the Portland Garden Club, Metropolitan Counseling Services, and the Junior League of Portland. Her family notes that holidays and special occasions at the Rosenfeld home were marked by Nancy's grace and beauty, and are cherished memories. Survivors include William; four sons; daughter Leslie, and son-in-law Reed trustee Randy Labbe; and 13 grandchildren, including James M. Labbe '95. Her brother Hollister M. Stolte ’32 also attended Reed.
