Doris D. Lipman, 90, of Somers, NY, died peacefully with her family by her side at Northern Westchester Hospital on December 18, 2019.
Doris was born October 1, 1929 in New York City. Daughter of the late Albert and Ann Donn, Doris graduated from The University of Missouri with a bachelor’s degree in journalism. She worked for the New York Times, where she met her husband, Walter L. Lipman. They lived in Rye Brook, NY for 33 years, where they raised two sons before moving to Somers, NY in 1992.
Doris served for 17 years as scheduler and coordinator for two Westchester County Executives, Albert Delbello and Andrew O’Rourke, and for the Lieutenant Governor of New York. She was an avid reader, often polishing off one book per day and reading the entire New York Times. She remained politically active throughout her life.
Mrs. Lipman is survived by her husband of 65 years, Walter; her sons Andrew and John of Orleans, MA; and grandson Aaron Lipman and his wife, Kiana Lipman. Doris was predeceased by her brother Richard Donn.

I knew Doris almost from the day I was born. She was an extraordinary person and role model. She probably never even knew the tremendous impact she had on my career. My heart goes out to her beloved Walter, Andy and John and, of course, her grandchildren, who I have not yet had the pleasure of meeting.
With love, Leslie Stein
