Mary Jean Doores

GREAT BARRINGTON Mary Jean Doores, 84, of Jacksonville, Fla. died on Wednesday, Nov. 25, 2009, at her summer home in Great Barrington.

Born Mary Jean Westcot in Linden, Iowa, Jeri as she was known to friends was the devoted spouse of Jack H. Doores who died in 2006.

A dedicated homemaker, she graduated from Louisiana State University and raised five, loving children. The family moved with Jack's career from Louisiana to New Jersey and England, and on to Connecticut and Florida.

Her retirement years found Jeri at home in Jacksonville and at her small farm in Arlington, Vt. where she participated in the church, the garden club, and bridge. She also was an active member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Mary Jean Doores touched many lives with her wisdom, generosity and love.

Jeri is dearly missed by her five children including Larry Doores of Grecia, Costa Rica, Brad Doores of Toronto, Canada, Sallie Doores VanSant of Great Barrington, Doug Doores of N. Tonawanda, N.Y., and Patti Doores Alles also of Great Barrington. She is survived by 13 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren.

FUNERAL NOTICE: Following a private, family ceremony in Great Barrington, there will be a memorial service at the Cypress Village Community in Jacksonville and burial with her husband in Arlington, Vt., this summer.

Memorial donations in lieu of flowers should be made to your local Hospice agency or Habitat for Humanity.
