Doreen Stone Notice


Doreen Stone (nee Dora Berg-Smith), born in Oslo, Norway in 1910, died peacefully in her sleep early on February 4th, 2016 at her home in Columbia, Maryland. She was 105 years old. Among her many joys in life were her children, George C. Stone and wife Holly, and Nada Ann Stone, and her grandchildren Sophia, Yuri, Elianna, and Emma Stone, and Ruben, Joey, and Rosey Derksen. Doreen immigrated to the US from Norway, landing in Baltimore in 1947. She settled in Reno, Nevada and married in 1949 to start a family with her husband George Stone, Sr. In 1963 the family relocated to Palm Springs, CA where she and her husband owned and operated a French hand laundry catering to many of the Hollywood celebrities and entertainers of the day. After retiring, she moved east to Columbia, Maryland to be close to her son, his wife and her grandchildren. She was a long time resident of Owen Brown Place in Columbia, where she made many friends and enjoyed the last 15 years of her life. Her long life, while filled with many challenges, was for a blessing to all who knew her. Her strength of purpose, kindness and compassion will live on in the fond memories of her family and friends who she cared so much about. A private celebration of her life will be held at a later date. Donations in her name may be made to Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland or The Florence Bain Senior Center, Columbia, MD 21044.
