Doreen Mildred Coleman (nee Colbeck)

January 20, 1922 – March 16, 2020
Our beautiful, kind, loving Mother and “Grammy” passed away peacefully at Cascade Lodge at 98 years old. She will be lovingly remembered as a happy, busy person who worked as a medical stenographer for over 30 years. She passionately enjoyed gardening, dancing, crocheting, knitting, and playing her piano; also baking, cooking, collecting bells and entertaining family and friends. She dearly loved her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, as well as her close friends and several pets during her lifetime. Mom delighted in naming and feeding her backyard birds, squirrels, and chipmunks too.
Mom outlived 2 loving husbands, Bill Mallet- Paret and Hugh Coleman, and her only son, Bruce Mallet-Paret, as well as her 3 siblings, Frank, Audrey, and Jack. She is survived by her 2 daughters, Judy Senft and Janice (Les) Wall, 5 grandchildren: Darin, Wade (Heather), and Rodney (Leslie) Senft, Carissa (Miguel) Rodriguez and Lanea Wall, as well as 4 great grandchildren: Kyle and Carl Senft and Armando and Marcelo Rodriguez.
She will also be missed by many nieces and nephews, and all who knew her, as she loved writing poetry for family and friends in their birthday cards, or making them bookmarks, crafts or pictures. Mom could still remember songs and jokes from her past, which she recited for all who visited her…she will be dearly missed by so many!
A heartfelt thank you to all of the Drs, nurses, aides and staff of Cascade Lodge, where Mom lived since 2006.
A celebration of Life will be held at a later date.Obituary
