Doris R. Winne (Horwitz) 92, of Abington, Pennsylvania passed away on January 17, 2022. She was born in Detroit, Michigan on April 30, 1929. She is predeceased by her parents, Leah and Jacoby Rothner, Philadelphia, PA and by her husband, Robert L. Horwitz.

Blessed to have two children, she is survived by her son, Alan Horwitz, his wife, Diana and their sons, Matthew, David and Robert and her daughter, Susan Georgeson and her husband, Steven and their three children, Andrew, Cory and Taylor. Doris is survived by her sister, Phyllis Lann (Goldberg) now living in Colorado and her children, Jill, Sandy and Lois and Max.

Doris made people feel welcome and supported wherever she went. Sewing, swimming and sharing special time with family and friends were her delight.

She graduated from Moore College of Art and Design, Philadelphia, PA. Doris created her own business where she designed and hand-made Happi Coats, (Japanese informal jackets). Later as a design draftsperson she produced detailed, technical drawings for an engineering firm. Her custom needlepoint work and beautiful, hand-made tapestries won many awards.

To help others suffering with essential tremors, Doris founded a Gama Knife support group. She was a member of Rodeph Shalom Synagogue, Philadelphia, PA. Services and interment were private. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to the American Heart Association or Friends of Curtis Arboretum, Wyncote, PA.
