The Arc of Essex County Remembers Rochelle Dworkin

Rochelle Dworkin joined The Arc family in 2009 and became a resident in the Linden Apartment Program in 2010. Rochelle was a vibrant, eclectic, and creative woman who grew up in New York City and Montclair.  She expressed herself through her clothing and jewelry; she made many of her jewelry pieces herself, as she was very talented at designing necklaces and bracelets. She was kind and conscientious, always asking others how they were doing and about their families. She often reminisced with staff about old actors, TV shows, and musicians. Rochelle loved watching soap operas, going shopping, reading books, working on crossword puzzles, and talking about weddings. She will be greatly missed and fondly remembered.
