Doris C. Dean, 89 of Brodhead passed away peacefully on Thursday, Jan. 12, 2023 at the SSM Health Hospice in Monroe.

She was born on March 2, 1933, in Grafton, NY, the eldest daughter of Willard and Ada (Teal) Coonradt.

She lived and attended school in Sand Lake, NY; graduating in 1950.

Doris married her childhood sweetheart, George W. Dean, on July 28, 1951, in New York.

Doris and George moved to Wisconsin in 1988 after retiring with 25 years of service from the Averill Park School District, Averill Park, NY.

Family was very important to her.  Her greatest joy was her three boys:  Glenn, Rory, and Randy.

She loved traveling and wintered for many years in Lake Havasu City, Ariz., until 2003, when George’s health no longer permitted it.

She is survived by three sons, Glenn (Barb) Dean of Mineral Point; Rory (Dawn) Dean of Warnerville, NY; and Randy (Linda) Dean of Brodhead; her grandchildren, Mari (Ryan) Schneider, Jenna (Adam) Domack, Yvonne (Nic) Hipenbecker, Derrick (Myka) Dean, Shana Dean, Taber Dean, Logan (Jodi) Dean, and Hannah (Sebastian) Wallner; two sisters, Phyllis Carner and Grace Clinton both of New York; and numerous great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Willard and Ada; two sisters, Ada (at birth), Kaye Winn; and her beloved husband, George.

A private service will be held at the DL Newcomer Funeral Home in Brodhead at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, memorials can be directed to the SSM Monroe Hospice, 3252 County Road N, Monroe WI  53566 in her memory.
