DORIENE E. (TASH) DECKER
September 11, 1924 - August 3, 2007
Doriene was ushered into heaven by God, whom she so graciously served, on August 3, 2007. Doriene was born in Chester, Maine, in 1924. She resided in Torrance, California, from 1954 until she passed away, surrounded by her loving family. Doriene was a loving wife to Keith and devoted mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Their lives have been forever changed by the love from Doriene.
Doriene was a homemaker for 50 years, and worked as a Sales Associate at Sears-Roebuck and Co. for 10 years. She received her Associate in Arts Degree from El Camino College in Technical Illustration. She was active in the South Bay Camera Club, holding positions on several boards, and competed worldwide, receiving numerous awards for her photography.
Doriene will be dearly missed by all those who knew her. Her passing brings deep sorrow to her husband of 61 years, Keith M., son Keith A., step-son Victor Hewett, daughters Sandra Manship, Diane Garretty (Patrick), Stephanie Code (Ronald), grandchildren, great-grandchildren, brother Earl Tash of Millinocket, Maine, sister Cora Carter of Port Charlotte, Florida, friend Florine Crocker of Old Town, Maine, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Much thanks to Doriene's children and an extra thanks to granddaughter Doriene Hargrove, for their love and support.
In celebration of Doriene's life, a memorial service will be held on Saturday, August 11, 2007. A private burial will be conducted at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made in Doriene's memory to the Alzheimer's Foundation.
