Notes for Doris Oshinsky:
From Lori Tucci, Doris' daughter:
My grandmother Celia was always worried about my moms heart, as a child my mom was treated as a cardiac cripple as she had a hole in her heart valve. They told my grandmother that my mom would probably die before she was 20. She survived and thrived to grow into a very beautiful tall raven haired woman.She went to Midwood high school in Brooklyn in the 40's and even knew class mate Woody Allen who apparently had a crush on her. She joined "Betty Betts High Hights", a club for tall woman and Woody Allen was too short for her to date.
She could sing opera beautifully also.I remember her singing and playing piano during my childhood, she was told by Beverly Sills voice coach that her voice was better then Beverly's!My father discouraged her from working as a professional opera singer as he was fearful she would leave him for the stage.She went into the antique business instead and was an interior decorator of some note, she decorated a lot of fancy homes and Manhattan apartments in the late 1960's. She would also refinish furniture herself and used bad smelling toxic paint removers! Later she developed asthma from this and this adversely effected her singing. She became dependent on inhalers to breath and we eventually moved to Florida because she was less allergic there.
The asthma worsened and became COPD, that later developed into Lung Cancer!She was not aware of the cancer at all until she suffered a heart attack that February, 2005 that they found it in her cat scan. When it was identified, it was advanced and had spread into her liver.It was such a shock as she exhibited no real symptoms other than the usual cough and some anemia. Strangely enough it was the heart attack that ultimately killed her, she was in the hospital receiving chemotherapy with a heart that was in aerial fibrillation. The heart attack was as a results of cholesterol clogged arteries in her left anterior wall, not not from the birth defect. It threw off a blood clot that gave her a massive stroke. I think it was exactly the same kind of heart attack my grandmother Celia died from 30 years earlier!Eddie Oshins also died from an MI, he was a diabetic like my mom, it may have been genetic.
