Doreen Morency Obituary

Doreen M. Morency, 78, of Riverside, passed away on March 16, 2024. She was married to the late Roger P. Morency for forty nine years.

Born in Providence, she was the daughter of the late Gilbert F. and Frances (Kelly) Leonard. She is survived by her children: Scott (Tiffany) Morency of Coventry and Rebecca (Ronald) Warr of Riverside; and her beloved grandchildren: Nathaniel Morency, Noah Morency, Hope Morency, Ciara Morency, Margaret Lima, Caeden Morency, Cassandra Warr, Samuel Warr, Benjamin Warr; and daughter-in-law Bonnie (George Lima Jr.) Morency-Lima, Nicholas Lima, and Matthew Lima.

She was the younger sister of Edward Leonard and the late Barbara Zanghi.

Doreen was a lifelong resident of Riverside and a 1962 class graduate of East Providence High School. She attended Rhode Island School of Design and Rhode Island College. She was employed as an office manager for Dr. Sudhir Bansal, MD in Warwick for 20 years before retiring.

Doreen had a passion for her gardens, artwork, and her grandchildren. For most of her life you could find her tending to her gardens, which were always full of blooms and vegetables. She was always the loudest in the crowd cheering on her grandchildren at their sporting and academic events. In recent years you would find her every Friday with her “Friday Night Girls” continuing friendships that blossomed in her youth over a glass of wine and laughter.

Deeply spiritual, even when it was a physical struggle, Doreen would manifest her faith in creating handmade rosary beads that she would gift to family and friends. Her connection to her family was her grounding force. She made every grandchild know how special and loved that they were; they meant everything to her.

Friends and family are invited to attend a Mass of Christian Burial on Saturday, March 23rd, 10 AM at St. Brendan’s Church, 60 Turner Ave, Riverside, RI 02915. Burial will follow in Littleneck Cemetery.
