NEW YORK — Rhoda Golden, 90, a longtime buyer for upscale specialty stores, died Monday at Lenox Hill Hospital here, according to Betty Cohn, a friend and founder of the buying office bearing her name. The cause of death was congestive heart failure.
Golden was associated with Cohn’s company as a buyer of women’s designer apparel for L.A. Schulman in White Plains, N.Y., where she worked for about 15 years before she retired about three years ago, Cohn said. Prior to that, Golden was a buyer for Fredley’s in Boston for 25 years.
Surviving are a daughter, Jeany Spunt; a son, Eric Spunt, and two grandchildren.
Private services will be conducted in Boston next week.
