Adlen, Dorothy P.
June 22, 1934 – March 5, 2014
Our wonderful Dorothy was taken from us very suddenly and unexpectedly on March 5.
Dorothy was born in Los Angeles to Gertrude and Tom Friedman and graduated from Dorsey in 1952. She married Sam Adlen and spent a lifetime dedicated to her family. Her husband Sam predeceased her. She is survived by her loving children Nancy Adlen, Nathan Adlen and his wife Suzy. She also leaves her brother Larry Friedman and his wife Linda.
Dorothy had a passion for life and a vitality to match. She loved the movies, travel and of course shopping. The most beautiful and thoughtful gifts always came from Auntie Dorothy. She was always there for anyone in the family needing help. She gave special, untiring attention to Nancy, her special needs daughter. Dorothy was with her always, delighting in their special trips and adventures together. She was especially proud of all the accomplishments of her nieces and nephews. She will be missed by all.
A celebration of Dorothy’s life will be this Sunday, March 9 at 12:30 at Mt. Sinai Hollywood Hills. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to New Horizons, 15725 Parthenia St., North Hills, CA 91343.
