Rose Laub Coser

Rose Laub Coser died August 21, 1994 at her summer home in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, ending seventy-eight years of intense and passionate commitment to her family, the institutions of which she was a part, sociological analysis, and the cause of social justice. Facing down the challenges of severe health problems over the last few years, culminating in kidney failure, Rose Coser was at work when she died on a new book, World of Our Mothers. In it she sought to identify the qualities and activities of immigrant mothers and the social structures in which they lived that led to differential achievement among a generation of Jews and Italians in America.
