C. Jeanne Dorethy
Jeanne Dorethy, RN, passed away on April 5, 2013 at the age of 72.
She was the beloved wife of Rex Dorethy for 50 years, and the mother of Michele Merrell, Fort Lauderdale, FL. She was sister to Kay Childs (Victor), Minnetonka, MN; Stephanie White (John), Stevens Point, WI; and Christine Casper, Madison, WI.
Jeanne was preceded in death by her parents, Perry and Lenore Williams of Winona, Minnesota.
She was a graduate of St. Teresa's College in Winona, MN.
Jeanne was a Registered Nurse for 43 years, and received her nurse training at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. She served in six Midwestern hospitals in Rochester, MN; Davenport, IA; Moline, IL; Bloomington, IL; and Muncie, IN. From 1986-2006, she held various nursing roles at the Rice Clinic in Stevens Point, WI, and served on various healthcare boards locally.
Jeanne loved her family more than anything. She spent many happy years traveling in the mountains of Montana and Wyoming with Rex and Michele, and their German Shepard dogs. She loved to cook and spend time with her sisters and their children, enjoyed good music and theater, her garden, and the birds, deer and other wildlife she cultivated at her home on North Maple Bluff Road in Stevens Point. She had a deep respect and loving relationship with her many nursing friends from the Rice Clinic and has missed her time with them during her illness.
A visitation will be held at Boston Funeral Home, 1649 Briggs St. Stevens Point on Monday, April 8, 2013 from 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm with a Memorial Service beginning 4:30 pm. Her family invites friends and colleagues to come celebrate her life.
