After the war, she joined her husband in New Holstein in 1946, where they lived until moving to Stevens Point in 1985. Doreen was a member of the Divine Word Evangelical Lutheran Church in Plover.

She is survived by her son Robert (Jo Anne) Uhl, Stevens Point; two nephews, Larry and Richard Uhl, and their families; and a cousin, Josephine who lives in England.

She was preceded in death by her parents and her husband Earl.

Doreen’s family is extremely thankful to the staff at Maple Ridge Memory Care and Ascension Hospice for their attentiveness, kindness, compassion, care, and support.
