Doris Ann Begalle

November 17, 1938 — February 16, 2024

Doris Ann (King) Begalle, age 85, passed away at St. Vincent Hospital in Green Bay after a short battle with lymphoma.

Doris was born in 1938 to Marie (Carignan) and Dona King in Cornell and grew up on a farm in Flat Rock. She was a member of Holy Family Church through most of her lifetime.

She was united in marriage to Robert (Bob) J Begalle on July 12, 1958. They lived in Bessemer, for 11 years before moving to Flat Rock.

Doris was a homemaker, who was devoted to her family and friends. She always kept a spotless home and yard. After Bob retired from Mead Paper, they enjoyed traveling on tour buses throughout the United States and spending a litte bit of winter in Florida. She loved spending summers at their cottage on Lake Gogebic. She was an avid baker and gardener, loving to grow dahlias and in later years having her favorite begonias in planters all over. Her favorite times were doing anything outdoors, including raking leaves. She was an avid Nascar fan, attending the Daytona 500 three times.

Doris is survived by her husband of 65 years, daughters Debbie (Steve Milford) Begalle, April (Randy) Johnson, son Larry (Vicky) Begalle; sisters Rose (Leon) Dunst and Bonnie (Mark) Jackson, and brother Donald King; sister-in-law Carole Mattila; grandchildren Tara (Jim Louisell) Johnson, Rhett (Amy) Johnson, Mary and Catherine Milford; nephew Jeff (Karen) Begalle, nieces Amanda (Jay) Van Damme and Becky Heidbrier; and 2 great grandchildren Poppy and Benji Johnson.

She was preceded in death by her parents, infant brother, and brother Robert M. King and sister-in-law Margaret Schaible.
