Obituary: Dorothy E. Rouh

Fifty-plus-year resident of Haddonfield, dedicated to The Haddon Fortnightly, dies.

Dorothy Rouh died peacefully at the age of 100, on Oct. 4. She had been a resident of Haddonfield for over 50 years before moving to Collingswood in 2013. 

She was the beloved wife of Edwin H. Rouh Sr. for 57 years, who predeceased her in 1996.

Dorothy was also the loving mother of the late Janice Rouh Hamilton, Edwin H. Rouh Jr. (Christy) of Cherry Hill, and Kenneth J. Rouh (Kathleen) of Jacksonville, Fla.  She is also survived by granddaughters Kara Brittain of Houston, Stefanie Rouh of Orlando, Rebecca Castillo of Jacksonville, Kaitlin Schmitt of Nahunta, Ga., and Kimberly Anderson of Naples, Italy, great grand-children Justin, Ryan, Elliott, Christopher and Mackenzie, along with many nieces and nephews around the country.

Dorothy was a member of the Evening Membership Division of the Haddon Fortnightly for over 50 years, was active in Elizabeth Haddon School Parent Teacher Association, and an active member of the First Presbyterian Church since 1996, where she enjoyed bible study and volunteering for the Primetimers senior lunch program.  Whether she was at Mabel Kay House helping to run bingo, or giving manicures to seniors at The Haddonfield Home, Dorothy derived the greatest satisfaction in her life from helping others and keeping in touch with her growing family.
