Rosencrantz, Lynn Leshgold, 1949-


Lynn Rosencrantz was born September 15, 1949 in Portland, Oregon, and spent her childhood there as a member of a vibrant Jewish community. In 1973, Rosencrantz married Arne Rosencrantz and relocated to Las Vegas, Nevada to join her husband. He was working at Garrett’s Furniture, a company they would later own together. Her first job in the city was teaching hearing impaired students at Ruby Thomas Elementary School.

Rosencrantz received a master’s degree in marriage and family counseling from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and later became the buyer for all Garrett’s non-furniture merchandise after a store fire. She now uses her creativity as a jewelry designer, while also working as a spiritual therapist. Rosencrantz’s community service experiences included leadership roles with the Jewish Federation’s Young Leadership Program, Junior League, Jewish Family Service and University Medical Center.
