Jeanette G. Askin


Jeanette Goldman Askin, 80, who once operated a Baltimore dry goods store, died of cancer Wednesday at Sinai Hospital.

Funeral services were held Friday at Sol Levinson and Brothers funeral establishment, 6010 Reisterstown Road.

Mrs. Askin lived in Diplomat Condominiums on Clarks Lane. The Baltimore native was a graduate of Eastern High School.

She worked as a dental technician before taking over the family-owned dry goods business, Askin and Askin, at 321 W. Baltimore St., after her husband, Milton, died in 1968. The store closed in 1977.

Her survivors include two sons, Joseph Askin of Baltimore and Stephen Askin of Los Angeles; a sister, Molly Walstrom of Seattle, and five grandchildren.

Memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society.
