Heart Emblem

Doris A. "Dorie" Meyer, age 77, of Dubuque, formerly of Eccumenical Towers, was called home peacefully at 5:00 p.m., on Tuesday, October 25, 2016, at Ennoble Skilled Nursing and Rehab, surrounded by her loving friends. To honor Dorie's life, funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m., on Saturday, October 29, 2016, at St. Raphael's Cathedral, 231 Bluff Street, with Msgr. Thomas E. Toale. To celebrate Dorie's life, family and friends may visit from 9:00 a.m. until 10:30 a.m., on Saturday, October 29, 2016, at Behr Funeral Home, 1491 Main Street. Burial will be in Mt. Calvary Cemetery.

Dorie was born on August 24, 1939, in Galena, Illinois, daughter of Agnes (Meyer) Mueller.

Dorie was a proud lifelong resident of Dubuque who devoted her faith life to St. Mary's Church, Church of the Resurrection, and was blessed to finally call St. Raphael's Cathedral her home for the last decade. She invested the years of her working career with the Hoffman Industrial Development Center, and later in housekeeping at Area Residential Care, until her eventual retirement in 2015. Dorie faithfully tested her luck at the Colts Bingo Hall, and was a regular Friday night crusader who traveled confidently, and lightly, with only a couple warmed up daubers in hand. Some of her greatest memories through her earthly travels were her relaxing days, and Saturday trips, with Cozy Corners and the multiple excursions she made to various Disney destinations with her friends at Camp Courageous. Dorie was never afraid to work, smile or have a little fun from time to time and we will surely miss her natural innocence, love for dogs, especially pugs, and her contagious knack for conversation. We must reluctantly allow her to journey home now and tenderly embrace the wonderful memories she leaves behind until we all meet again. May God bless you Dorie and thank you for generously sharing your light with us over the past 77 years.

Those left to cherish Dorie's memory include

her close friends and caregivers,
Jane and Joe Bowerman, Dubuque, IA
and Deb and Rick Fishnick, Dubuque, IA
and all of their families;

her sister,
Helen Johnson, Texas.

Dorie was preceded in death by her mother; and special friends, Jim and Ann Strub

A Doris A. "Dorie" Meyer memorial fund has been established, which will be distributed among her favorite charities.

Dorie's friends would like to thank the nurses and staff at Ennoble Manor for all of their kind, compassionate and professional care.
