Madge D. Doering

Mrs. Madge D. Doering, age 91, of LaPalma, Calif., died on Friday, October 19, 2012 at her home.

She will be buried at Rose Hills Memorial Park, 3888 Workman Mill Rd., Whittier, Calif. 90601 on Saturday October 27, 2012. There will be a viewing at Rose Hills Mortuary (Gate 1) from 11 a.m. until 12 noon followed by a graveside funeral service at Rose Hills Memorial Park (Gate 17, Lot 7624, Grave 4) at 1 p.m.

Madge was born in Lincolnton on August 19, 1921 to the late C. C. and Pearl Dalton. She is survived by her brother, Forest E. Dalton Sr. of Roanoke Rapids as well as multiple nieces, nephews and extended family. She was preceded in death by her husband, Harvey Doering.

Madge graduated from Lincolnton High School and began work at a small dress shop in town called, “Roses 9 and 10,” named so, because each of the dresses were sold for between nine and ten cents at one time. Madge earned twenty-five cents an hour, which would buy her a sandwich, which came with a coke, down at the corner drug store. Another quarter would buy her a movie.

At her Lutheran Church, she made lifelong friends, including John Harrelson who would later introduce her to Harvey Doering. Soon after, they were married on January 1, 1947, (Harvey’s birthday) and remained the perfect couple for over sixty-three years, until Harvey’s passing on May 5, 2010. It was in their relationship together, and in her church, that Madge would find continual strength and purpose.

Madge was endlessly supportive of her friends, family and Harvey, through his continuing education and career at McDonnell Douglas, which eventually became the Boeing Company. She was doubly supportive later in life when Harvey developed Parkinsons.

They both loved to paint. Madge would paint flowers on vases and dishes, while Harvey painted western scenes. Harvey loved his fiddle, while Madge sang devotional songs at St. Luke’s of Long Beach. To know them was to hold them as an example, and hope that your own relationship could some day match the love they built together over long years, through thick and thin times. Harvey and Madge are reunited now, past the gap of our mortal sight. May we celebrate the life they lived, and the love they carry through eternity.
