Doris Celia DeYoung

Doris Celia DeYoung, 97, of Rochester, MN passed away peacefully on Monday, April 29, 2019.

Doris was born on December 18, 1921 in Clontarf, MN to Eugene and Elva (Bolinger) Chevalier. She was the fourth of eight children and grew up on the family farm. She graduated from Benson High School in 1940 and farmed in the Danvers area for many years. In 1963, she moved to Rochester with her son, Timothy, and daughter, Maria. There she worked for many years in the pharmacy at Rochester Methodist Hospital, retiring in 1983.

On May 3, 1975, she married Dallas DeYoung and they blended their family of six children.  After their retirements, they moved to Apache Junction, Arizona and enjoyed every opportunity to spend with their friends and family. Some of their favorite activities included going on cruises, attending Polka festivals, teaching her grandchildren to play card games, and traveling extensively with many dear friends. They returned to the Rochester area in 2006 to be nearer to family.

Doris was always very social and had an infectious personality that drew people to her. Her sass and wit endeared her to many.

Doris is survived by her daughter, Maria (Tom) Himmer; stepchildren, Pam DeYoung, Tom (Laurie) DeYoung, Gary DeYoung, and JoAnn (Joe) Schutz; grandchildren, Nicole, Corey, Justine, Neal, Carter, and Anaya; and several great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her sisters, Gladys Matthieson, and Judy (Bill) Ashenbach; and many dear nieces and nephews.

Doris was preceded in death by her husband, Dallas; her son, Timothy; and siblings, Lula, Donald, Roy, Vera, and Alice.

A memorial celebration will be held at 11: 00 a.m. on Friday, May 3rd in the River Park Chapel at Macken Funeral Home lead by the Reverend Cory Moss, Heartland Hospice Spiritual Care Coordinator. Burial will be in Grandview Memorial Gardens in Rochester. Visitation will be held from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 2nd in the River Park Chapel at Macken Funeral Home and one hour prior to the service on Friday.

The family would like to thank Heartland Hospice and Cottagewood Senior Living for all their loving care of Doris.

Maria, Pam, Gary and Tom: So sorry for your loss.  I was thinking about all the fun times Jerry and Norma had with Dallas and Doris all over the country and Mexico!  I come across pictures of all of them quite often looking through my mom's pictures.  They will now all be together.  It can be a very difficult time but the memories will live on forever.  All of you are in John and my prayers. 

Maria and family,


My sympathy to you.  Doris held a very special place in my heart and loved her visits on the phone when she would call me.  Loved her dearly.


Diane 

Sympathy, thoughts and prayers to the family.  May your happy memories sustain you as you go forward.
