Doris Levin, a homemaker and former clothing store sales associate, died Tuesday of complications from dementia at Milford Manor Nursing Home and Rehabilitation Center in Pikesville. She was 91.

The former Doris Abrams was born in Baltimore and raised near Druid Hill Park.

She cut short her education at Western High School to help in her brother-in-law's Pennsylvania Avenue bar and delicatessen.

During the 1960s, Mrs. Levin was a sales associate at Lanns of Baltimore, a dress shop at Park Avenue and Lexington Street.

In the 1980s and early 1990s, she worked at the Ross Dress for Less store in Owings Mills.

Mrs. Levin, who had lived for many years at the Willowbrook Apartments on Fallstaff Road, collected Beanie Babies and stuffed animals.

She was a founding member of Ner Tamid-Greenspring Valley Synagogue.

Her husband of 65 years, Benjamin Levin, a retired 7UP Bottling Co. supervisor, died in January.

Services will be held at 11 a.m. today at Sol Levinson & Bros., 8900 Reisterstown Road, Pikesville.

Surviving are three daughters, Barbara Gold of Succasunna, N.J., and Gail Shugarman and Linda Silverman, both of Pikesville; six grandchildren; and seven great-grandsons.
