Doris Theisen


Doris Anna Theisen (nee Wetor) peacefully passed away on Monday, Feb. 25, 2019, at Sunrise Care Home in Paradise Valley, Ariz.  

Born on May 26, 1921, Doris lived 97 wonderful years.

She was preceded in death by her parents Frank and Anna (Schneider) Wetor, her four brothers and three sisters and her beloved husband Melvin N. Theisen in 2009.  

Both Melvin and Doris were born in Belgium and grew up in Dacada. They married in May 1946 and moved to Phoenix in 1961.   

In her early years, Doris worked at the Allen Edmonds shoe factory. She had a heart of gold, was so outgoing toward people and loved music. She played accordion and organ, and her talents ranged from church to polka to patriotic music. In recent years, her passion was knitting baby hats for a local hospital maternity ward.

She will be missed by many nieces and nephews.

A visitation will be from 10 to 11 a.m. Thursday, March 7, 2019, at Whitney & Murphy Funeral Home, 4800 E. Indian School Road, Phoenix.

Following the visita-tion, a Catholic Mass will be celebrated at St. Theresa Catholic Church, 5045 E. Thomas Road, at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, March 7, 2019.

Immediately following Mass, entombment will take place at St. Francis Catholic Cemetery & Mausoleum in the Resurrection Mausoleum at 2033 N. 48th Street.
