Donna M. Doren died peacefully in her home surrounded by her loving family on Thursday, April 28, 2022, she was 83 years old. Donna worked as a Registered Nurse for the Cleveland Clinic for 30 years. She later received her Masters degree in Education and provided counseling services. She was a quiet, gentle lady who did not enjoy the spotlight but certainly did deserve it.
She was a follower of the philosophy of Buddha and enjoyed participating in and teaching Yoga. She was a believer in Spiritual Healing and Reiki. Donna enjoyed travel especially if she could snorkel while doing it. She had a soft spot in her heart for cats and was a voracious reader of Science Fiction, Philosophy and Religion.
Donna met the love of her life, Neil Doren, in 1981 and they married in 1984. They have been inseparable ever since. Together they made their home in Westlake for the past 40 years. They were soulmates, they took care of each other, they were a match made in heaven.
Family has always been important to Donna. She is the cherished daughter of Ann and Donald Unangst. Married for 22 years to Albert Beekman, she became the beloved mother to Lisa and Susan. Her beloved family expanded to include their husbands Bob Keating and Joe Brewer; and then again to her step-sons and their families, Larry and Paula Doren, Mitchell Doren, Jason and Denise Doren. Donna is also the cherished grandmother to Jacob Brewer, Leah Chiles, Matt Foran, and Haley, Jake, Daniel and Matthew Doren.
The family wishes to express special gratitude to the many loving caregivers whose dedication to Donna brought her comfort, care and support beyond words. We cannot thank you enough.
