Dorothy Borenstein Greenberg


On Jan. 29, Dorothy Borenstein Greenberg died peacefully at her home in Woodside, Calif. Born in Skierniewice, Poland, she lived nearly 40 years in the Washington, D.C., area, moving to Florida and then California in later years. Her “work” was that of a homemaker, as a loving wife, mother, provider of home and sense of comfort to generations of those around her. She was a remarkable and charismatic woman of many talents – painter, classical pianist, singer, tennis player, dedicated bridge player and president of her Hadassah group in Washington, D.C. She also possessed a special sense of humor. Dorothy is preceded in death by her husband of 67 years, D.C. pharmacist Solomon W. Greenberg and brothers Aaron Borenstein, Philip Bourne, Ben Bourne and sister Mary Brosgol. She is survived by her sons Dr. Peter (Suzanne) Greenberg of Woodside, Calif.; Edward (Jeri) Greenberg of Washington, D.C., and daughter Francine (Leon) Feinerman of Harrisburg, Pa. She is survived by her brother Jack Borenstein, of Mesa, Ariz. She is also survived by seven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Funeral services were held Feb. 1 at Hills of Eternity Cemetery in Colma, Calif. Memorial contributions may be made to the the Peninsula Jewish Community Center in Foster City, Calif., or the Mission Hospice of San Mateo, Calif.
