To Doreen's family,
I am SO sorry to hear of your loss. It was just this past Thursday I got the news from Dr. Davis of how ill she was. Doreen was always there with a smile and waiting to tease me about something! She was a wonderful nurse and the office isn't the same without her. She loved to watch my son grow and had a place in her heart for both of us. I will truly miss her. She was an amazing woman that touched MANY lives. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I have had the honor to work with Doreen the past few years. I am truly a better person for having known her. I always looked forward to our Tuesday conversations and finding out about all of her family. She was a dedicated wife and mother and was very self sacrificing for her family.

I have never know a more genuine Irish-woman. Green was truly her favorite color!

She truly faced all the challenges life threw her head on and with a positive and cheerful attitude.

My deepest condolences to her family. I will miss her wonderful personality very much! The Clarks Summit office will never feel the same again.
