Helen Jane Doine

Doine, Helen Jane
90, of Sun City, Az passed away on November 23, 2013. She was the matriarch of our family, a beautiful woman with a youthful spirit and beautiful heart. Kind and generous, she put everyone's needs ahead of her own. She was an avid football and baseball fan and loved shopping, dining out, was an excellent cook and was gifted with angelic soprano opera vocals. She had a sharp mind and was up on all current, political and tabloid events until the day she died. Her last words to us all were "I love you, love your families and love each other" which was a true reflection of her Christian faith. She was preceded in death by her husband Albert J Doine Sr., a WWII veteran, ex-POW and Purple Heart recipient, and her stepson Daniel Doino. She is survived by her daughter Yvonne Buckner Biondi of Desert Hills, Az, Albert J. Doine Jr of Sun City, Az , Michael F. Doine of Phoenix, Az and their spouses, 4 brothers, 1 sister, 14 grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren. She rests with her beloved husband at the Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Cave Creek, Az. Mom, your presence and your love will be greatly missed. You truly were the wind beneath our wings.
