Doreen's favorite things to do throughout her life included bowling, feeding the outdoor birds and spending time with her family, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Doreen is survived by her children Susan Silvestri, William Silvestri, Sandra Frye and Christine DeCarlo and their spouses. She is predeceased by her husband John DeCarlo, her brother Charles Gobbi, her son Charles Silvestri, and her daughter Sally Canavan.
Doreen will also be deeply missed by her grandchildren, Richard, John, Valkyrie, Rebecca, Jessica, Will and their spouses, her numerous great-grandchildren nieces and nephews, her life-long best friend Ann Hess, as well as the rest of her large extended family. Her absence will be felt year-round, but especially during the family's regular large gatherings which will be missing her jokes, stories and warm presence.
The family will be holding a private memorial. In lieu of flowers please donate to Alzheimer's and dementia foundations.
