Norman Cosover
You are taking a random walk through our online cemetery.
Birth: Mar. 1, 1909, Ukraine
Death: Sep. 20, 1990
Pittsfield
Berkshire County
Massachusetts, USA

Norman was born Noeah Kossower in Krasilov, Khmelnytska Oblast, the seventh of nine surviving children of Rabbi Pinchos Kossower and Gitel Beitchman Cosover. He immigrated through Ellis Island on Dec. 9, 1921. He was naturalized as a US citizen on Apr. 18, 1930.

He was the manager of the Cosover Gas Station on Jerome Avenue in the Bronx, New York, selling Sunoco products. He later owned a gas station on Central Avenue in Yonkers. He lived in the Bronx for many years.

Norman married Eleanor Adele Faff and adopted her daughter. In retirement, the couple enjoyed their home near Queechy Lake in Canaan, Columbia Co., New York.

He was a kind and lovely man.

Many thanks to Eileen Sarajak, who so graciously found and photographed Norman's gravestone, and to Lonnie Hillard Wolgamott (genienut), who so kindly sponsored this memorial.
