Rose Marie was very close to her only sibling the late Joseph F. Tinschert. Rose Marie was a very kind, spiritual and religious person.

Rose Marie was a graduate of Hunter College where she earned a Bachelor’s degree and worked in publishing and as a legal secretary. Rose Marie loved to read and had a general thirst for knowledge. Rose Marie was very passionate about the Feldenkrais Therapy Methods that she started taking to improve her posture, reduce her pain, feel better and become in tune with her body so much that she later became a Feldenkrais instructor.
