She was a member of the "Glazierlach" clan of Denver, Colorado's west side Orthodox Jewish Community. The family had been glaziers in Brest-Litovsk and in Denver the family became known as the "glassies." Channah Milstein was known for her personal commitment to charity in Denver's west-side East European immigrant Jewish community as she urged residents to contribute to her collections of food, clothing, and money for the needy. She and her husband Benjamin, emmigants from Russia, were part of the early settlers in the Jewish agricultural community located in Cotopaxi, Colorado in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in the early 1880s. The colony failed in 1884. She was the sister-in-law of Shul Baer Milstein.
