Doreen was born February 18, 1933 in Suffolk, England.
She married Claude L. Baird in 1952 and made her home in Spokane.
She is survived by: four siblings, Pam, Lawrence, Raymond and Eileen, all of England; her five children, Janet Baird, Louise Jensen (Russ), Sharon Figgat, Michael Baird (Cathie), and Susan Ballard (Rick); eight grandchildren; and sixteen great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her husband, and her brother, Norman.
Doreen was devoted to her family, laughed easily and was a natural prankster.
Her grand and great-grandchildren will remember her bedtime stories forever.
With heavy hearts we grieve, and yet we smile at the angel heaven has received.
We mourn our loss and will miss her so very much.
A Visitation will be on Thursday, October 3, 2012 from 3:00pm to 5:00pm.
