Doreen met Bob in 1947 and it was love at first sight. They were married in 1952 and started a family in Brussels. Doreen was an educator for well over 50 years, starting in a one room schoolhouse in Grey township when she was 18. She went on to teach at Brussels Public School where she focused on english and grammar. Doreen continued her education achieving a bachelor’s degree so that she could keep teaching. Doreen was very proud of her students and took great pride in seeing them succeed. She loved to read, especially Stephen King books and enjoyed her vacations, including her ‘bible weekends’ with friends and traveling to Florida. She was a loving mom and will be missed by many.
