Our beloved mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend returned home to reunite with her sweetheart on October 15, 2022 surrounded by her family in the comfort of her home. She was petite in size and stature but her love and kindness could fill a room. She touched many lives whom simply knew her as “Grandma”. She dedicated her life to serving others and did it with grace, her door was always open. Her faith was strong and she was a devout member of the LDS church.
Doriene was born to William and Rosella (Christensen) Baron on January 20, 1931 in Salt Lake City, Utah. She had many fond memories of growing up in the Rose Park area, graduated from West High School, and continued her education at the LDS Business College.
