Dorothy Newhoff (nee Breitstein), passed away on Tuesday, March 16th, 2021 at the age of 90. A lifelong Baltimorean, she is survived by her son, Douglas (Elizabeth) Newhoff; and grandchildren, Caroline and Emily Newhoff. She was predeceased by husband, Theodore; her brother, Charles Breitstein; and parents, Dorothy and Moses Breitstein.

Throughout her career Dorothy was a living example of women’s empowerment. From a social worker to the Acting Director of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission for the City of Baltimore, her life’s work centered around advocating equal rights for all. She was a woman ahead of her time in both her career and commitment to social justice.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions be sent to the Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary or the Alzheimer’s Association.

It was around this time of year that Dorothy would bring me her chocolate covered matza, which was out of this world! I will greatly miss our chats. You are an incredible woman, Dorothy, and I hope my life turns out as rich and meaningful as yours. Miss you always.

Dear Doug,
It's been a long time since we were neighbors on Greenspring Avenue, but we have wonderful memories of you and your parents. May their memories always be a blessing to all who knew them.

Bob and I were so sad to hear of Dorothy’s passing. She was our next door neighbor and friend for many years at Harper House. When she moved to Roland Park Place I visited her a few times. She was a kind, caring woman and she will definitely be missed.
Our sincere condolences,

Barbara and Bob Frey

The sudden passing of Dorothy came as a shock as we had just talked this past Sunday. Dorothy and Ted let us in with open arms more than five decades ago. We are family. We enjoyed many gatherings at their home on Greenspring Avenue and then at Harper House. Dorothy was charming, caring, always punctual, and a source to the family past. Dorothy had a firm position on almost everything.
Doug, we will miss her dearly.
May her memory be for a Blessing.

Dear Newhoff Family,
We were so sorry to hear that our wonderful former neighbor down the hall on the 14th floor of the Harper House has passed away! We have missed her ever since she left and went to Roland Park Place. Dorothy was always friendly and we had many conversations. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this very sad time!

Dear Douglas and Family,
Your mom was as good as it gets. We were neighbors for many years at Harper House before she left for Roland Park Place. Since we parked next to each other, she and I talked often and I think we both solved many of the world's problems in a parking garage. I seemed to always be there when she returned from the hair salon with her beautiful Edward Cini hair looking like a million dollars. She really was a joy to talk to. I know the other residents here at Harper House would express their sorrow to you at this time. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
