    • Mathilda Kravetz Gorin, a California homemaker and Baltimore native who operated a Dundalk grocery store with her husband many years ago, died Saturday from complications of Alzheimer's disease at a Rockville nursing home. She was 84.
      Raised in Baltimore, she graduated from Eastern High School in 1936, and a year later married Sol Gorin. They owned and operated a small supermarket in Dundalk in the late 1940s and 1950s, and lived in the Pimlico neighborhood, according to her son Stuart Gorin of Gaithersburg.
      The couple moved in 1963 to Charlotte, N.C., where Mr. Gorin worked for the Chamber of Commerce. After he took a job on the West Coast with the National Federation of Independent Business, they moved in 1970 to San Carlos, Calif., where Mrs. Gorin became a hospital volunteer. Her husband died in 1981, and Mrs. Gorin returned East this year.
      Mrs. Gorin collected music boxes after she received one as a gift decades ago, her son said.
      "Then every time a birthday or Christmas would roll around, we wouldn't have to wonder what to give Mom," he said. "She had more than 100 catalogued. Her favorite was `Waltzing Mathilda.'"
      Mrs. Gorin enjoyed traveling. She had visited Australia, and enjoyed Caribbean cruises and visiting her three sons.
      Services were held Monday.
      She also is survived by her sons Barry Gorin of Daytona Beach, Fla., and Myles Gorin of Mesa, Ariz.; nine grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren
