Obituary of Doris Bluth
Doris Bluth (nee Finkelstein), 88, of Summerlin, died peacefully on March 2, 2019, at home surrounded by loved ones. She was born on November 30, 1930 to Bertha (Lindenbaum) and Morris Finkelstein. Her husband, David, predeceased her. Doris had a full career as a professor at the City University of New York, and she retired as Chairwoman of the Department. Doris and David moved to Las Vegas because Doris wanted "a different life, not just the same life without working." And what a wonderful and long retirement they had! Doris loved the mountains, the weather, the entertainment, and all her friends here. She consistently talked about how this was the favorite of all the homes where she lived throughout her life, and she especially loved the view out her back windows of the park and the mountains. Doris is survived by her older brother, Daniel Finkelstein of New York, her daughters Elyse Bluth (Drew Kling) of Chicago, Karen Bluth (Dale Lohrey) of North Carolina, and Arlene Bluth (Shari Ungar) of New York. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Mackenzie Gill (Ethan Kitchens), India Gill, Alex Kling, and Jonah Bluth, and, of course, her mahjong ladies. A graveside service will be held 11:00 am on Tuesday, March 5, 2019 at Palm Northwest Cemetery, 6701 N Jones Blvd, Las Vegas, NV.
