It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our beloved mother Donalee S. Doremus (Sue) on June 11, 2020 in Poughkeepsie, NY. She was 83. Donalee was born on June 26, 1936 in Maybrook, NY to her parents Thomas Droney and Margaret Lockwood. She is preceded in death by her husband Paul Doremus Jr. of LaGrange, NY and her sister Patricia Jenkins of Beacon, NY. Donalee is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Robin Doremus and Judah Ronch of Edgewater, MD; her daughter, Lynn Doremus of Poughkeepsie, NY; her son, daughter-in-law and grandson; Brian Doremus, Teresa Doremus and Tyler Doremus of Manhattan Beach, CA; and her sister, Jackie Hurley Morse of South Carolina. Donalee is also survived by many loving nieces, nephews and cousins that she adored. Donalee spent over 30 years working for the Shop Rite organization as an office bookkeeper in Fishkill, NY. She was an avid Mets baseball fan and former season ticket holder of the Hudson Valley Renegades. She loved spending time with her family and friends and will be fondly remembered as a warm, loving and devoted wife, mother, sister, aunt and grandmother. She will be dearly missed by so many loving family, friends and neighbors. No services are planned at this time during the Covid-19 crisis but a private memorial for family and friends will be scheduled at a later date. Donalee will be buried next to her husband Paul in the Fishkill Rural Cemetery in Fishkill, NY. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to our Mom’s favorite charity, St Judes Children’s Hospital, in her honor. Arrangements are under the direction of the Wm. G. Miller & Son FH, Inc.

To the Doremus family my deepest sympathy. Am so saddened having just learned of her passing vie the Local 1500 Memoriam.
I worked with her for 25 years at the Fishkill Shop- Rite. She was referred to as " Mother " in her Dept. She could always resolve any
clerical error and always with a comforting smile. We all loved her.............. Jackie DuBois

Rest In Peace sweet lady. When I came into Poughkeepsie Shop Rite I would look for your smiling face in the office. My mother adored you and enjoyed all the years you worked together. My prayers to your family that they continue to feel your love through blessed memories. Jennifer Dunn.
