Obituary of Doris Eileen Dottori

DOTTORI, DORIS EILEEN (Née Hindrea) – After a brave struggle, with her family by her side, Doris passed away on Thursday, August 16, 2018 at Pioneer Elder Care in St. Catharines, having just celebrated her 77th birthday. Doris leaves behind her loving husband of 53 years, Frank; Daughters Penny (John) Marrone, Michele "Missy" (Dan) Hendriks and Cindy (Eric) Hendriks; Grandchildren Amanda, Megan, Joseph, Noah, Carter, Brooke, Tyler and Ava. Doris leaves behind many dear, dear friends and family, too many to name, but each one close to her heart. Doris' smile and love for life blessed each of us in simple yet special ways. She took immense pride in raising and supporting her family, making memories with friends and cherished her administration role both at General Motors and Portage Mutual Insurance Company. She kept the circle of life around us all happy and organized. Look out for your things laying around when she had her sponge or vacuum in hand!! A brisk walk around the neighborhood block of Springbank Drive, a ballroom dance across the floor of Club Roma and a flutter board swim across their cottage bay of Lake Kipawa kept her heart beating strong but it was the love within it that she poured out to others, her greatest gift and the treasured instrument of her grace and peace. Mom found her beautiful true colours in this life and now softly as a butterfly she finds her way to a new eternal life in heaven's home. We will miss her but will let her go, knowing her love remains within us each and every day. The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to the many health and care professionals, family and friends who assisted with Doris' care. Family and Friends will be received on Sunday, August 26, 2018 at BOOCHINFUSO FUNERAL HOME 2 Regent Street, Thorold from 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM and from 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM. Vigil prayers will be recited at 3:30 PM. A Funeral Liturgy will be held on Monday, August 27, 2018 at St. Mary of the Assumption Church 169 St. Paul Crescent, St. Catharines at 11:00 AM.
