ABREMSKI, DOROTHY F., passed away on July 23, 2021. Dorothy was the daughter of the late Frank and Martha Gajewski. She was pre-deceased by her husband, Edward J., her sister Wanda Moreno and her brothers Francis Gajewski and Anthony (Kubi) Gates. Dorothy is survived by her loving son, Kenneth Abremski, his wife Mary Jeannette, and their daughter Jennifer Jeannette.

Dorothy grew up near Patterson Park in Baltimore City. She spent most of her married life in the Perry Hall area before moving to Oak Crest, an Erickson community in Parkville, MD, in 2015. To be closer to family, Dorothy relocated to another Erickson community, Maris Grove in Glen Mills, PA in 2020.

Dorothy enjoyed many hobbies including gardening, baking, latch-hook rug making, and volunteering at the Golden Ring Senior Center. She enjoyed the many trips and activities, surrounded by family and friends. Dorothy’s love of gardening was visible outside her home, but also found its way indoors to artificial arrangements, wreaths and home décor. Dorothy was well-known for her delicious homemade Christmas cookies, which she generously gave to family and friends.

The family would like to thank the staff at Rose Court as well as Willow Tree Hospice of Kennett Square, PA, for their gentle care and support. Funeral Mass and burial at St. Joseph’s Cemetery will be private.

A Memorial gathering will also be held at Maris Grove in Glen Mills, PA on August 4th at 2 pm in the Chapel. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church, 8420 Belair Rd, Nottingham, MD 21236. Please visit Schimunek Funeral Home ( to send online condolences.

We lived next door to Dorothy and Mr. Ed. who passed away just about a year after we moved in. After that time Louie and I would look at how Dorothy grew in her independence. She learned how to drive a car. Did all of her grocery shopping. Went to the mall in the mornings to walk with her sister. So much more. She looked after her lawn. Which she would let our boys know not to cut the corners with their bicycles on her property. Her flower beds we’re always well kept. She was a wonderful neighbor and we missed her when she moved to Oak Crest. We knew that this was the best for her at that time. When my mom moved there, we would see her walking the halls. It was hard to keep up with her. As time went by we always kept in touch with her. She will be missed.
