Roslyn Kline

Roslyn Zuckerman Kline, a resident of Great Neck for more than 60 years, died peacefully on Aug. 10. She was 94.

Roslyn was born and raised on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. After graduating from Hunter College at age 19, she obtained a Master’s degree in French from New York University, a rare accomplishment for a woman of her generation.

Following World War II, Roslyn spent seven years in the Foreign Service for the U.S. State Department, working in Paris during most of this time.

After returning to the United States, Roslyn married Emanuel Kline in 1954. The couple moved to Great Neck in 1957 with their first child. After raising four children, Roslyn rejoined the workforce for another 15 years, following which she volunteered for a number of area organizations and remained active in the community.

Roslyn is survived, and will be lovingly remembered, by three sons, Brett, a journalist in Paris; Ivan, a lawyer in New York City; and Eric, a Drug Enforcement Administration intelligence analyst; and five grandsons. A fourth son, Mark, died in 2010. Emanuel died in 2015, after 61 years of marriage with Roslyn.
