Doreen Weiss-DeShazer

Doreen Weiss-DeShazer of Woodinville, Washington, passed away on March 23, 2020, at Evergreen Hospital in Kirkland, Washington.

Doreen was born in Providence, RI on September 2, 1962. She grew up with her parents Adam and Claire, and Sister Linda Michalik. She loved to visit her Uncle Louis, Aunt Carol and Cousin Lois, who lived nearby. She often talked about the beauty of her hometown, especially during the fall.

Eventually moving to Washington in 1996, she later enjoyed and excelled in a career of furniture sales and room furnishing design. She loved the scenery of the Pacific Northwest, photography of the local flowers and wildlife, sticking her feet in the sands of Cannon Beach, Oregon, taking ferry rides to Whidbey Island, and picking blueberries or strawberries.

Doreen was spiritually strong, and loved to teach others about the Bible and the wonderful hope for the future whenever she could. Doreen was noted too for her empathy and warmth; she had a way of connecting to those she met, and formed many enduring friendships along the way. She always had an impact on all who knew her, thanks to her enthusiasm and her genuine, selfless love for others.

She is survived by her son Ben and her Husband Elvin.

A memorial to celebrate her life will be held on a future date.
