Doris A. Greenwood (McDowell), a lifelong resident of New Windsor, NY entered into rest on July 17, 2022 at the age of 87.  Doris was born August 15, 1934 to William and Lillian McDowell of Newburgh, NY.

Doris married James Greenwood on July 31, 1954.  They met while both working at the Highland National Bank in Newburgh, and they were happily married for 48 years before Jim’s passing on January 24, 2002.

Doris was a graduate of Newburgh Free Academy, class of 1952. She loved talking about “the good old days” of Newburgh and always kept in touch with her many friends from school.  She spent most of her working life as the Jewelry Manager for the Rosenbaum Catalog Showroom located in Vails Gate.  She loved working in the jewelry business at one time or another helped family members and  half of her neighborhood get jobs there!

After her retirement, she always wanted to keep busy and volunteered for numerous area organizations.  She loved to be out doing volunteer work and volunteered at the St. Luke’s Hospital thrift shop, Orange County Garden Club, The Newburgh Historical Society, and several others.  She loved volunteering at the ticket booth whenever the Philharmonic had concerts at Mount Saint Mary’s in Newburgh.  She was also an active member of the Meadow Hill Reformed Church and had served as a Deacon.

In addition to her husband and her parents, Doris was predeceased by her sister Barbara Secor, sister Jean McDowell, her Brother-In-Law John Antonucci,  and her Sister-In-Law  Dorothy (Dot) Antonucci (Greenwood).

Doris is survived by her loving children Kim Razcewski (Robert) of Mifflinburg, Pennsylvania and Jim Greenwood (Virginia) of Cortlandt Manor, NY.  She is also survived by a sister, Linda Ostrander; and many loving nieces and nephews.  She was very blessed to have six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren, all of whom she loved dearly.

Doris was blessed to have loved, and be loved, by so many family, friends, and neighbors over her decades of life spent in Newburgh and New Windsor.  She will be comforted to finally reunite with her husband Jim who she has missed tremendously over these past years.
