Where do I begin- My mom was the most amazing woman I ever met. Her sense of family has been instilled in each of us.  The love of her life, my dad have reunited.  I miss her so. I hope that I can have the strength that she showed over these past 9 years. God bless you Mom.  Thank you for all you gave to me, I hope that I can be all that you were to so many. I love you the foreve. Paula

For many years the Willis family lived down the street from us in El Cerrito. We had lots of fun playing with all the kids and getting to know Doreen. What a kind funny lady she was and she and my Mom Dolly became fast friends. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. God Bless, Tish

To the Family:  We have lost the body, but not the spirit of a "Phenomenal Woman" who graced us with her laughter and stories. Doreen Willis was a joy to be around with her calming smile and candid demeanor. She will be missed, but the good part is that we will see her again in paradise! She will be missed.  Much Love!

Quick story, The last time I saw Aunt Doreen I confessed to her when I was a kid I was a little scared of her. She gave me that grin that she has and with a sparkle in her eyes she said "Good"
I always loved that about her
