CHERRY HILL – For nearly three decades, Rose Alice Hurst worked as a careful editor at the Courier-Post, shielding readers from typos and excruciating prose, errors and misspellings.

The veteran journalist, who died Jan. 17 at age 76, “was the matriarch of the Courier-Post copy service for many years, admired and feared by his colleagues,” recalled MJ Fine, former editor of the Cherry Hill newspaper.

In a Facebook post, she described Hurst as “a silent servant to our readers who may never have known her name but noticed when she was no longer around and the bugs crept in.”

Hurst, a Southampton resident, retired in 2008 after 29 years with the Courier-Post and more than 40 years in journalism.

The Temple University graduate previously held several positions at newspapers in North Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.
