Dorrene’s life work was caring for others. She was a amazing and compassionate NICU nurse for many years. Dorrene always had high expectations for those she worked alongside of and oriented. She had a warm smile and a laugh that truly made your day. Dorrene you will forever be in our hearts and part of our NICU family.
