Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
April 7, 1935 – May 18, 2022
Tanya Abrams, born Tanya Roberta Rosbrow, passed away in Beverly Hills, CA on May 18, 2022, two days prior to what would have been her 57th wedding anniversary with her husband, Sheldon Abrams, who predeceased her in 2013. Born in Wilmington, Delaware on April 7, 1935 to Joseph and Ethel Rosbrow, the family later changed their last name to Ross. At the age of ten, Tanya moved to Los Angeles along with her parents and her older brother, Tevis (Ted). At UCLA, she became a campus leader, serving as President of UCLA’s Women’s Student Body. A career woman, her first chapter was in the fashion industry, where she traveled the globe as an international buyer for major retailers, and later was an executive at leading women’s wear company, Teddi of California. In her second chapter, she worked in interior design, including side-by-side with her husband as co-owners of Jeffrey Stevens Design, a West Hollywood-based wallcovering and fabric showroom and distributor. An active community leader, she led organizations ranging from the local PTA to the Amie Karen Cancer Fund at Cedars-Sinai. She counted many friends with whom she enjoyed years of friendship, and countless games of Mah Jong. She liked to end the day with a drink, whether a glass of Chardonnay or a Manhattan, and with Sheldon traveled the world, as well as restaurants throughout Los Angeles. And, of course, she was a proud mother to her sons, Steven and his wife Natalia, and Jeffrey and his wife Michele Breslauer, along with their sons, Sam, Jack and Jesse Abrams. Donations in her name can be made to any charity or organization near to your heart. Her name will always be a blessing to all who knew and loved her.
