Mom never lost her passion for music and dancing and often sang and danced in our home. She loved traveling with our Dad to visit their children and grandchildren. Mom's church family was very important to her and they continued to watch over her after the passing of her husband. She loved her garden and working on crossword puzzles.

Doreen is survived by her four children, Kathy Smith of Medford, Ore., Russ (Barb) Smith of Medford, Ore., Deborah Sargent of Whidbey Island, Wash., Gary (Jaynee) Smith of El dorado Hills, Calif.; six grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

You will always be in our hearts, Mom, and missed every day.
