Doris (Dot) T. Worster, age 91, passed away. She will be busy attending a Heavenly family reunion. Mom departed our presence on June 26, 2016, and is once more in the loving arms of her one and only love, Dad, Robert M. Worster, Sr. Also there to rejoice with her are her parents, Harriett and Forrest Thompson, of North East, PA; her only sibling, Richard F. Thompson; and mom and dad's first born daughter, Louise Lentz, of Dexter, NM.
Those who will join them later are their daughter, Alice W. Poulin, of Roswell, NM; their only son, Robert M. Worster, Jr., of Colorado Springs, CO; and their youngest child, Barbara G. Worster of Woodland Park, CO. She also leaves behind numerous grandchildren, and great- grandchildren. Her first great-great grandchild is due in August.
Dot was born on June 15, 1925, in North East, PA. She lived there until she married Dad on January 29, 1945. During their nearly 50 years together, they visited all 50 United States, and several European countries.
As they traveled around the United States, while Dad served in the Navy for 22 years, attended college, and worked as an Electrical Engineer, mom made our many houses into a loving home. What we may have lacked in material possessions, we more than made up for in love. Mom volunteered many hours with the Red Cross, and, in Roswell at the ENNMC Thrift Shop. Mom was a Boy Scout den mother, as well as a Girl Scout Leader, when we children were growing up. She enjoyed doing many crafts, including plastic canvas and counted cross stitch. She loved to decorate our home. Christmas was her favorite holiday. Every room of our home was decorated! She loved to be around people, and cared so much for others. She loved playing the slots in Ruidoso, and went there as often as possible. She usually won, and got very excited.
The greatest blessing of mom's passing is, now she knows those she is with, and those left behind. Dementia robbed her of so many memories, which she now can relive with those she loves. We know she is smiling down on us, and she will continue to watch over us in the time before we see her again.
Inurnment will be in Colorado Springs, CO, at a later date. Mom and dad will once again be together, forever.
The family would like to thank Gentiva Hospice, especially Anita, the wonderful staff at Brookdale Assisted Living, and the caring, devoted caregivers in Memory Care, for their personal assistance to mom, and to our family, during her residence there.
If you would like to make a donation in mom's name, please consider the Roswell Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association. Stopping this terrible disease will end the suffering of many families, and enable our loved ones to pass along their memories for generations that follow.
Good-bye mom. We will see you later.
Per her request, there will be no local services.
