Doreen enjoyed taking care of her children, foster children, grandchildren and being a rancher’s wife. She always made sure everything was taken care of for everyone in her family. Her house was always impeccably clean & everything had its place. Doreen loved to sew & make beautiful quilts in her spare time.
Christianity was a huge part of Doreen & Ed’s lives, from attending Church to reading the BIBLE at home with family.
At Doreen’s request, there is no formal service planned. A private family graveside service will be held.
