Ashman, Milton (I1924)
3 14August2001 - Rose Krastman passed away quietly in the hospital this morning. She
said her farewells last night in my visit with her. The doctors were
notified and were looking for any signs that she was having difficulties but
could not find anything wrong. She knew it was her time and wanted everyone
to continue to be happy, healthy, and prosper.
Donald and family will be coming down here tonight or tomorrow
morning. We will be sitting Shiva at 10924 Milburn St in Fairfax City VA.
starting 8/15 or 8/16.

The gravesite funeral was yesterday (Wednesday). Mom died on Tuesday
8/13/2001 around 10AM. She died quietly in the hospital and was not in any
pain. The doctors had said that she was fine and ready to be released from
the hospital but she knew that her time to leave us was near and she said
her goodbyes the night before. She said that her work and duties were
complete and it was time for those she loved to carry on and prosper. She
knew that her arteries and heart were too weak to support her dreams to play
with her young grandchildren and take care of her nephew Stanley Weiss. She
requested that we tell Stanley about her and see to it that people visit and
help him. Toward that wish son's Donald and Philip, along with Glenda
Kirkman, and Joe Pawlak went to Levindale Nursing Home to visit with
Stanley immediately after Rose's funeral. Stanley was happy to receive the
only visitors that come to see him.
Mike McManious and the few of my mom's family and friends left wished
they could attend the graveside service too but they all had other
commitments. My dad's cousin Libby Egert and son Joey joined Glenda, Joe,
Donald, and Philip in burial rites for Rose. The ceremonial last rites were
attended by a class of rabbinical students from the Baltimore Yeshiva, and
we all took turns in prayer and returning the rocks and soil to cover the
casket, contents, and gravesite.

Rose Molly Krastman's Biography:

Born Rebecca Millner 2/19/1918 in Baltimore City Maryland of immigrant
parents Solomon Millner and Dena Goldberg Millner. Rose was the second of
four children and the caretaker in the family. She was named Rose Molly at
birth but because her mom did not speak English Rebecca her older sister's
name was put on her Birth Certificate. Becky and Rose were raised during
the great world-wide flu epidemic that devastated the world's population
during her early years. She remembers the loss of many relatives. Then she
endured the loss of her beloved uncle who volunteered to fight for American
Freedoms in Europe during WWI. Rose cherished education and excelled in her
public schooling. She advanced in academics and was well read. She
accelerated a few grades in school so that she could help translate English
and run the Family grocery store for her parents. When her younger
brother's Eli and Henry came along she was the caregiver for them too.
Rose's father died suddenly of a heart ailment when she was around ten years
old. When rose was around 18 years old her mother was hit by an automobile
and the broken hip resulted in her Mom contracting pneumonia and death.
Older sister Becky married Phil Weiss and the family all lived with Phil and
Becky. Rose was working to support the family when WWII broke out. She
got secretarial jobs with the US Army at Aberdeen and Edgewood Arsenals.
She helped raise her younger brothers as best she could. When her nephew
Stanley was born she also helped raise him.
After WWII Rose dated Frank Krastman who she fell in love with and
married in 1952. Rose became housewife and mother in 1953. Philip was born
in 1953 and Donald in 1955. Rose decided that she wanted to earn income and
use her professional skills outside the home in 1961 so she took the federal
and state civil service exams. Her verbal and writing skills got her a job
as the secretary to Dr. Watson ( Director of the Baltimore Zoo). Rose's
older sister, Becky, got a job as the chief accountant/auditor for the City
of Baltimore Public Works Dept. Becky reported directly to the City
Comptroller. When Dr. Watson left as director of the Baltimore Zoo, Rose
got a job as a clerk with the Maryland State Health Department at its
headquarters in Baltimore City. She worked for the director. A few years
later she got the opportunity to work closer to home as the school
secretary/clerk at Pimlico Elementary School. Rose worked the next twenty
years for the Baltimore City Public School System at that school and she is
remembered fondly by many students, staff, principals, co-workers, and
parents for her many contributions. A wonderful retirement party was
attended by two hundred people to celebrate Rose's contributions to the

Frank, Phil, and Donald prospered during those years too and Rose
saw the marriages of both her sons as well as the birth of her
grand-daughter Marcie Chana. Rose took care of husband Frank during his and
her both having heart ailments in 1984. In 1986 she lost her first and only
true love husband Frank Krastman. He died in her arms of a heart attack and
Rose had been taking care of (off and on of) grand-daughter Marcie since her
birth in 1980. Rose tried to instill many good traits in Marcie by her
direct example. Marcie loved playing with her Grandmother more as a
playmate than a parent. Rose tried to teach Marcie traits such as
responsibility and the need to exercise to develop her physical capacities,
Rose suffered the loss of husband Frank. A year after his death
1987, Rose fell ill with failing heart blood circulation. She had a
neighbor take her to the hospital where she died for 15 minutes during a
test. Son Philip retrieved her from that hospital and got her admitted to
Washington Hospital Center where she underwent Open Heart Surgery with
wonderful results.
Rose then outlived her siblings who also died of heart and stroke ailments.
Rose got to meet many long lost relatives these past few years over
connections via the Internet and WWW. Rose volunteered to do tasks at many
VA and MD Senior Centers, volunteer organizations, she gave blood many
times, taught emigrants English, worked to staff Washington DC based folk
festival activities, was active in folk dance groups, and continued her
intellectual pursuits. Rose enjoyed her participation in the Northern VA
Ethical Society as a friend and felt like minded in the societies beliefs.
Rose loved her close relationship with Glenda Kirkman and all of Glenda's
relatives. Rose traveled much in her adult life after husband Frank died.
She had traveled with Donald, Philip, and the Fairfax City Seniors to
Israel, the Caribbean, Canada, and all over the Eastern US. Her declining
health did not permit her to visit some of the places that she would have
liked to. She was dismayed at the current state of bloodshed in Israel and
she predicted that the conflicts there would only get worse to where she did
not want to think about it during her last day.
As Marcie entered puberty in 1994, Marcie severed relationships with
her father and grandmother's families. Rose lamented the death to cancer of
Donald's wife Sheila Lefkowitz Krastman in 1993. In 1996 Rose's nephew Dr.
Stanley Weiss was struck by a speeding car as he was crossing the street and
Rose spent many months watching over her nephew in the trauma unit till
Stanley recovered as much as he could. Rose visited Stanley as much as she
is able too and she requested that people continue kind deeds to her nephew
Son Donald met and married his second wife Debbie in 1995 and they have
had two boys and a daughter. Grandchildren Frank, Robert, and Sara were
great joys in Rose's life. Rose only briefly met grand-daughter Sara and
older brother Robert, but she did get to know and love the oldest boy Frank
who is now six years of age. Frank was quite hurt that his mother would not
permit him to pay his last goodbyes to his very much loved grandmother.
Rose lamented that she would not have the strength and time to visit with
her grandchildren before her leaving us.
Rose knew that her time was up the night before and she said her goodbyes to
Philip and Glenda in Rose's usual grace and forgiving directness. Rose was
strong and in control of her feelings and body till the end which she wished
to be the beginning for all of those people who she loved and leaves behind.

42 Cape Town - A gay man from Sea Point was reportedly killed over the weekend after he went on a date with someone he had met over the internet.

The body of Graham Flax, 65, was found under a duvet in the corridor outside his flat in the Costa Bravo apartment building, reported Die Burger.

His friend, Atol McLaggan, said Flax had gone to meet someone, but wasn't sure if it was a friend or a date. He added that Flax often went on internet dates.

A police spokesperson said Flax had suffered a hard knock to the head.


“Residents of the building heard how he screamed: ‘Let me go! Let me go!" at about 02:40 on Saturday morning," said Captain Frederick van Wyk.

A laptop and cellphone had been stolen from the flat, which was not locked.

Police said the murder could not be linked to the murders of eight other gay men in Gauteng, but said there were similarities in the cases.

A man had apparently handed himself over in connection with Flax’s murder and was still to appear in court.

McLaggan said Flax was a soft target. "He had poor vision and he was one of those men who grew up in a community where homosexuality was suppressed. I think it often appears as though older men have money."

Flax was retired and worked as a volunteer at the Jacob Gitlin library. He had moved down to Cape Town from Johannesburg over year ago.

“I can understand that the kind of dates that Graham went on made him vulnerable to robbery. But to be attacked with so much violence, that I don’t understand,” said McLaggan.

In the process, Chayale was beaten on the head with a rifle butt as the Gemans wanted her to work more rapidly. She died almost immediately! Glick, Chaya (I734)
45 Committed suicide on his 70th birthday.
In 1921 he went to France to get his brother's (John Jacob Rome) body from the American Cemetery in France and for it to be reburied in the U.S. There was a full military funeral in Pittsburgh.
Peter also fought in WWI and also in the American/Mexican War in 1916 "chasing the bandit Pancho Villa".
