Greece NY: Doreen passed away on 12/30/2016 at 63 years of age at Unity Hospital after a courageous battle with cancer. She was born December 1953 to August and Jean (Busico) Fouquet, sisters Darlene and Rose. She is survived by her children Lynda Ewell, Jill (Jesse) St. John and Kelly (John) Ellsmore, grandchildren Jayson, Jeremy and Raina St. John and Lilyanna Ellsmore, and caring, devoted companion Eric Webster.
Doreen worked for many years at two local bakeries and as a newspaper carrier. She enjoyed sunshine, reading, being outdoors, walking the beach, hiking, dancing, cooking and searching out local festivals, concerts and community events to explore and enjoy. She appreciated the simple beauties of life: being up early enough to see the sunrise, deer grazing in the neighborhoods, the arrival of spring flowers. She was hardworking with an amazing work ethic and took pride in the things she did. She always kept busy, devoting many years to raising her daughters, particularly later in her life when her youngest, Kelly, was born, continually striving to support them, making sure they never went without. In the three years since she was diagnosed with cancer, she was able to experience many fulfilling ventures including a James Talyor concert, trips to the casino and a Caribbean cruise, thanks to Eric’s positive mantra of living life to its fullest. She was the best mother and grandmother that she knew how to be. She was proud of her daughters, loved her grandchildren and will be missed. We are grateful she is now resting in peace.
In lieu of calling hours, all friends and loved ones are invited to join us in a celebration of her life from 1:00 to 4:00pm at the Knollwood Lodge in Northampton Park on Sunday January 15, 2017.
