Georgia Lowe Dworshak, 90, a Washington resident since 1938 who was active in the Senate Ladies Club and the American Red Cross, died of respiratory arrest Sunday at George Washington University Medical Center.
Mrs. Dworshak moved here when her husband, Henry C. Dworshak, a Republicaan from Burley, Idaho, was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. He was elected to the Senate in 1946 and died in office in 1962.
Mrs. Dworshak was born in Dexterville, Wis., and grew up there and in Rochester, Wis. She taught school in South Dakota and them moved to Duluth, Minn., where she worked for The Duluth Herald. There she met her future husband, who was a printer at the newspaper.
They were married in 1917 and moved to Burley, Idaho, in 1924, and purchased a weekly newspaper.
In 1967, Mrs. Dowrshak received an award from the Red Cross in recognition of her years of volunteer work for the organization. She lived in Bethesda at the time of her death.
Survivors include three sons, Henry I. and Ward W., both of Bethesda, and Charles L., of Retsil, Wash.; a brother, William J. Lowe of Lutherville, Md.; a sister Ferne P. Starkey, of Portland, Ore.; six grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.
The family suggests that expressions of sympathy be in the form of contributions to Children's Hospital, Washington, D.C.
