Blease and had six children for whom she cared for and loved deeply.

Doreen was a devoted mother and supported her family with various occupations throughout her life, including Denise’s Cafe in Randolph and Kohls in Beaver Dam, where she made many of her lifelong friends. She found a passion for sewing, quilting and crafting, creating many of her children’s clothing, as they grew and filled their home with many decorative quilts and crafts.

Doreen was a passionate and creative woman, who loved the holiday season and spending time with her family.
