  • Norman Rosenfeld


    In memory of Norman H. Rosenfeld

    Norman H. Rosenfeld, beloved husband of Dulcie Rosenfeld, died after sunset on Thursday, November 13, 2014. Norman was the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Sibley's Shoes, founded by Norman's father, Harry, in 1920. In 1948 he married Dulcie Beth Krasnick, who survives him, after 65 years of wedded bliss. They raised four children on Steel Street north of Outer Drive and later in a home on Hamilton Road across from Palmer Park. In 1986, "Dulcie and Norm" became one of the original tenants at the Riverfront Apartments complex, where they constantly entertained family and served as hosts for numerous community causes, including Gleaners Community Food Bank. Read Obituary →
