Hochstein, age, 94 years, died on September 11, 2023. She was an award-winning writer and insatiable reader, who shared her love for life with innumerable friends and family members. She enjoyed conversations, performances, and museums until her heart gave out while visiting her beloved Berkshires.

An author of self-help books, two novels, plus countless short stories and feature articles, she taught writing in schools, mentored writers young and old, and was awarded fellowships by Yaddo, MacDowell, and the New Jersey Council on the Arts. Born in Yonkers, NY, daughter of Sara (Weinberger) and Martin Abrahams, she married her Syracuse sweetheart Morton (Hocky). They raised Eric (Linda), Kate (Juan), and Bess (Kipp) in Tenafly, NJ, moved to Manhattan, and traveled the world. Proud grandmother of six and great-grandmother of three.

Rollie’s life will be celebrated at Riverside Memorial Chapel, 180 W. 76th St., New York, NY on October 1, 2023 at 2pm.
