Doris Hozid Krensky (1933-2017)

Doris Krensky, beloved wife, mother, grandmother and teacher, passed away on November 28, 2017 at home in Salt Lake City at the age of 84. She was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts to Celia June Goldner Hozid and Samuel Hozid. She was raised in Brookline, Massachusetts where she met her husband and lifelong partner, Arthur, whom she married in 1954.

Doris lived a very full life of joy, love and gratitude and was always the first person to offer help to anyone in need. Famed challah maker for the Jewish community, founding member of Chavurah B'Yachad, lifelong volunteer - Doris rarely turned down an opportunity to contribute.
Teaching was her calling. Doris adored her students and spoke of them often until the very end of her life. She graduated from Lesley College with a teaching degree and received her Master's degree from Harvard Graduate School of Education.

Affectionately called Dotty by her children and grandchildren, her pride and joy was her family. She reveled in their accomplishments. She loved spending time in her garden and home. She was able to stay in her home thanks to the love and care from her daughter Beverly, and son-in-law, Bob, who moved in to help Doris and Arthur.

Her family is profoundly grateful for the remarkable care she received from her medical providers: Dr. Martha Glenn, Andi Schindler, Eryn, Debbie and Jill at the Huntsman Cancer Institute, Dr. Mara Rabin and Dr. Lorraine Szczesny.

Doris is preceded in death by her parents and her beloved friend, Willis Dorman-Ligh. She is survived by her husband Arthur Krensky, her sister Rosalyn Komins, her children: Harry Krensky, (Linda Revithas Krensky), Beth Krensky (Edward Gorfinkle), Beverly Krensky (Bob Ketchell), her grandchildren: Enzo, Cole, Tess, and Zev, and her nieces and nephew.
Wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, gardner, baker, teacher, kind and generous being of will be missed.

In Doris' memory please consider making a donation to the Jewish Family Service, Chavurah B'Yachad, Huntsman Cancer Institute or feed someone in need.
