Sorry to learn about the death of Doraine. She was the office secretary when I was working at West Elementary. You know with that job she touched many lives within that building. She was always a kind and gentle lady. I'm glad that she was able to move closer to family and become part of a retirement community. Thoughts and prayers to family and friends. Jeanne Peters.
