Dorothy Kohn, 96, of Elkhart, passed away, surrounded by her family on Sunday, July 7, 2019 at Elkhart Center for Hospice Care.

She was born in New York City on May 1, 1923 to Alexander and Sarah Rosenbloom.

On October 6, 1946, Dorothy married the love of her life, Sol Lippman.  He passed away in 1965.  On August 6, 1966, she married Mort Kohn.  He passed in 2011.  She is also preceded in death by her only sibling, Leon Rose in 2018.

Left to cherish her memory are her children Bobbi Myers (Bob) and Dr. Michael Lippman (Kelly) of Seattle, her grandchildren, Adam (Rachel), Andrew (Ellen) of Elkhart, and Sara and Noah Lippman, and her great grandchildren Ella, Luke, and Tessa.

Dorothy was raised in New York City where she was employed in the fashion industry.  She moved to Buffalo, New York when she married Sol.  Together they owned a packaging business which she later carried on with Mort.

She moved to Elkhart in 1984 upon the birth of her twin grandsons, Adam and Andrew.

Dorothy’s greatest joy in life was her family and caring for them in whatever way she could.  She will be remembered for her lively conversations and being the littlest lady with the biggest heart.
