Maida Horovitz, 94


LANTANA, FLA. – Maida Horovitz passed away peacefully on March 18, 2022, in Palm Beach, Florida.  She was the beloved wife of the late David Horovitz.  Born in Providence, she was the daughter of the late Leah (Bachrach) Billingkoff and Morris Billingkoff (“Young Montreal”).  

She was the proud granddaughter of the late Rabbi David Bachrach.  She was the devoted mother of Dr. Nancy Bachrach, Dr. Len Horovitz and Dr. Ellen Horovitz (Jay Marino).  She was the loving aunt of Amy Panzer (Andy).  She was the cherished grandmother of Daniel Horovitz, Kaitlyn Darby and Bryan Darby.  She was the grateful friend of companions Jasmine Fung, Chantal Police and Geraldine Toussaint.

Maida was generous and charitable, a lifelong volunteer, a dog lover, a music lover, a jingle writer, a bridge player who made her contracts, and a golfer who sometimes helped herself to an extra ball.  She was the inspiration for the memoir “The Center of the Universe.”  She was an original, and she will be missed.
