    Doreen loved her family appreciated her friends and was interested in the world. She was smart, kind and had strong opinions yet respected others. Im so hsppy she was able to enjoy her new home. She was going to buy a cactus this spring. I will miss our long phone calls talking about haircuts, refrigerators and politics. We were friends for over 40 years. I miss my friend.

    Doreen was a friend, confidant, sister that I never had, and one of the strongest persons I’ve ever known. She went into nursing, then the law because of her desire to help people, all the while marrying and having children. She refused to die when the medical staff in a hospital was certain she was on her deathbed. Instead, she miraculously got well and moved to Las Vegas. The death of her husband was heartbreaking but the death of her son was soul breaking. Yet, she picked up the broken pieces of her life and tried her best. She loved to gamble, loved to eat, loved to talk, loved her friends and family unconditionally. I will miss her.
    REST IN PEACE my beloved friend. 

  • You will be missed

    My heart is broken. I’ve lost a mentor and a surrogate older sister that helped guide me thru life and helped me at times when it was hard to turn to others. I can only hope that I gave back to you as much as you have given to me. Memories that will help my heart heal are those sunbathing on the raft, drinking coffee and smoking at Big Boy for hours, and just being able to hang with you and your family any time I wanted to get away and ended up at the lake with those I loved. Rest in peace Aunt Doreen. xo

    Mom, I know you were worried about me and Barney and everyone else but we’re all going to be OK. You were in a lot of pain and now it’s gone, you can Rest In Peace. You were a great mom. I love you so much and will miss you always. Say hi to Dad and Jeffy, give ‘em a big hug for all of us.
