Margaret Rosenheim Summer resident of Pentwater

Margaret Keeney Rosenheim, a long-time summer resident of Pentwater died Feb. 2, 2009 in San Francisco at the age of 82. A Michigan native she spent much of her adult life in Illinois, where she taught at the University of Chicago for more than 50 years.

She was born in Grand Rapids, the daughter of a lawyer, Morton Keeney, founder of the law firm Butterfield and Keeney which subsequently included President Gerald R Ford among its partners. On her mother's side, Rosenheim was the granddaughter of Franklin Billings, a former Governor of Vermont.

Educated locally and then at the Baldwin School in Philadelphia, Rosenheim attended Wellesley College but after two years transferred to the University of Chicago law school. She was award the JD in 1949 and joined the faculty of the university in 1950. She specialised in the treatment of juvenile offenders, and was the author and editor of many books and articles. She was dean of the university's School of Social Service Administration from 1978 to 1983, and served on the boards of the Carnegie Corporation and Nuveen Investments. In latter years she was the chairman of the Children's Home and Aid Society of Illinois.

Known as Peggy to her friends and family, she was married for 58 years to Ned Rosenheim, a professor of English at Chicago who died in 2005. Most of their summers were spent in Pentwater, where they owned a house in town since 1955. A beautiful woman in her youth, she was famously elegant, but interested in people, friendly and unpretentious. She is survived by three sons — Daniel, the news director of KPIX-TV in San Francisco; James, a professor of history at Texas A&M, and Andrew, a writer living in England.
