Jeanette B. Bornstein passed away on Thursday, May 27th.  She was beloved by her family, friends, and everyone who knew her.

The first of four to be born in the US, born in 1922, Jeanette outlived both her older and younger siblings. She was a devoted daughter, sister, wife, mother, and grandmother.

Jeanette was a homemaker and also helped out in the family business with her first husband, Charles Davis, who died in a boating accident in 1965. Together, they raised two children, the late David S. Davis and Helaine Davis Workman.

Jeanette volunteered in the Jewish Hospital gift shop. Shop being one of her favorite verbs, she was always dressed fashionably with shoes to match each outfit.

She was married to Abe Bornstein from 1967 until his death in 1996.

Jeanette is survived by her daughter, Helaine, son-in-law Dr. Frank Workman, daughter-in-law Vicki Davis; grandchildren, Michael C. Davis, Claire Workman Stern, Abby Workman; three great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.  Everyone loved Jeanette, and she loved everyone in return.

Jeanette was a lifelong member of Keneseth Israel Congregation.  Donations may be made in her memory to that congregation or any organization of your choice.

Graveside services will be 1:00 p.m. Sunday, May 30th at Keneseth Israel Cemetery, 2800 Preston Highway.
