Affordable Cremation and Burial Service - Las Vegas Obituary

LEILA CLARK DOREN Leila Clark Doren passed away peacefully on May 9, 2020 with her family by her side. Leila was born on September 16, 1933 in Montana. At nine months old she moved to Las Vegas with her family. Parents, Robert and Mae Clark, and siblings, Robert, John, Roberta, Connie, and Jeanette. Leila's father worked on the Hoover Dam and made Las Vegas their home. Leila attended Las Vegas High School where she was a majorette. She met and married Jack Doren, whom she loved and was married to for 48 years until his passing in 2002. They had two children, Tom and Carole. Daughter in law, Marlene and son in law, Lionel. She also had three grandchildren, Jordan, Alex, and Lexie. Lastly, 2 great-grand-children Lennox and Jordan. Leila lived a very colorful life. She adored music, loved attending the YMCA, parties, and visiting her many friends. She never met a stranger and loved to talk. Leila's nickname was, "Miss Beautiful" and her motto was, "Live, Love, Laugh, and Lipstick!" We will miss her laugh and her love. See you in Heaven Mom.

A Fallen Limb

A limb has fallen from the family tree. I keep hearing a voice that says, “Grieve not for me. Remember the best times, the laughter, the song. The good life I lived while I was strong. Continue my heritage, I’m counting on you. Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through. My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest. Remembering all, how I truly was blessed. Continue traditions, no matter how small. Go on with your life, don’t worry about falls. I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin. Until the day comes

we’re together again.”

saying a few words for someone not known
with this lady, it's easy with the video shown
her girl is my friend the bright light I met
which I'm sure Leila had something clearly to do with
her life seemed to be a peaceful existence
appearing to have little to no external resistance
it was obvious to see by the tightness of their hands
the love that she felt for her husband
they seemed lucky to...

She is so beautiful! We are sorry for the loss of your mother ❤

Will miss you beautiful and your wonderful smile
