Born April 4, 1946 in New Britain, Connecticut Doreen lived a full life raising a family, working, and creating wonderful family memories. She worked at Quality Coils, Inc. in Bristol, Connecticut for many years. Doreen loved camping, dancing, singing and most importantly spending time with her family. Her house was the place to be for picnics and family gatherings. She loved playing games on her iPad especially Words with Friends up to the final week of her life. Doreen is survived by her children: Paula Murphy (Husband: Timothy), Cheryl Coe and Steven Antonelli as well as her grandchildren TJ, Ryan, and McKayla Murphy; and Caitlyn, Christopher and Cameron Ruggiero. She also leaves behind brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends from over the years. She will be greatly missed.

Doreen’s children would also like to extend our deepest appreciation to all staff that cared for our Mother at Connecticut Hospice. We cannot express enough gratitude for their incredible skill, thoughtfulness, guidance, and compassion they showed not only to our mother but to the family.
