Bess (Stern) Roth

April 3, 1924 — July 9, 2021


Bess Stern Roth passed away on July 9, 2021 at the age of 97.  Bess was born on April 3, 1924 to Louis and Mary Stern. She was married to her beloved husband, Joseph, for 68 years, who preceded her in death in 2012. Elegant and intelligent, Bess was a master bridge player, having only taken up the game in her later years. She was an active member of Congregation Beth-El Zedeck and its Sisterhood.

She is survived by her loving children, Steven (Nancy), Alicia (Mary Lace) and Nathan (Yardena); her grandchildren, Alexis (Gavin), Deborah and Becca Roth and by her great grandson, Asa Joseph Burris.

A member of the greatest generation, Bess was an accomplished jewelry designer, entrepreneur; a woman ahead of her time. She did not pass lightly through this life, having touched all of those with whom she came in contact. She walks in light with grace.
