Laundry Love

On the final Saturday morning of each month, St. Elizabeth's ministers to our neighbors by paying for and providing supplies for them to do their laundry.

As each month comes to an end, many families are simply "tapped out."  Laundry can be a significant expense when one must choose among paying the rent and/or utilities, buying food, and all the other necessities of life.

This is a ministry that even a small church like St. Elizabeth's can perform with a few people and a modest budget.

Doreen Rumery Graveside Service

Florence Doreen Rumery, 99, passed away on March 10th at her Brookdale apartment in Brighton, Colorado. She was born on May 31,1917 in Liverpool, Lancashire, England to Henry Charles and Florence (Titherley) Grimshaw.  Doreen spent her early childhood in Liverpool, England.  She immigrated to the United States through Ellis Island in 1930 when she was 12 years old.  They moved to Long Island, New York where she graduated from Bryant High School majoring in Business Administration. After graduation she worked as a bookkeeper and attended Pratt Institute majoring in Commercial Art. Two years later she transferred to Columbia University.  In 1938, her studies were interrupted when her father retired and the family returned to Liverpool, England.

Life changed drastically with the beginning of World War II in 1939.  Doreen’s father served England in the Merchant Marines, transporting troops to the battlefields. After contracting pneumonia, he was buried at sea off the coast of Africa.  Life was very hard, there was very little to eat, and the nightly bombings were terrifying.  Doreen enrolled in classes and changed her major to accounting because women were needed to fill the jobs men had left during the war.  She worked as an assistant accountant for Imperial Chemical Industries.  Every evening she rode her bike through Liverpool during the nightly bombings. Doreen was a Fire Warden in Liverpool during the German bombing blitz.  In addition, she volunteered at the British Red Cross where she met her husband, Elroy E. Rumery Jr., who was in the U.S. Army Air Corps and they were married in Liverpool in 1945 after the war ended.

After the war, Doreen returned to the United States in 1946. She lived in Maine, Colorado, Florida, Texas, and New Jersey before settling in Henderson, CO.  When she became a single mom, Doreen worked several low paying jobs to put food on the table and managed to scrape together enough money to send all her children to college.  Her hard work resulted in a promotion to the position of accountant at the Warner Company.  Later she was able to combine her favorite past time of traveling with work, coordinating the incentive travel program for the company.  Doreen traveled the world visiting all the continents except Antarctica.  She enjoyed playing bridge at Eagle View Adult Center, planning family holiday get-togethers, cooking, working in her garden and spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She served as Secretary-Treasurer on the Warner Company Board of Directors, was a member of the Society of Company Meeting Planners, and was a 4-H leader for 15 years.  Doreen was honored for her accomplishments in Who’s Who of American Business Women.

Doreen is survived by her daughter, Beverly and her husband Frederick Trail; her son, Larry and his wife Brenda Rumery; her grandchildren: Ryan and his wife Pamela Trail, Julie Trail and her husband Adam Menefee, Mathew and his wife Caitlin Rumery, Lee Rumery and his partner Ashley Sargent; her great-grandchildren Morgan Trail and Henry Trail; her sister Stella Schweitzer; and former husband Sidney Gluck. Doreen was preceded in death by her son Donald D. Rumery and former husband Elroy E. Rumery Jr.

Burial will be at Elmwood Cemetery in Brighton.  In lieu of flowers the family requests memorial donations be made to Eagle View Adult Center, 1150 Prairie Center Parkway, Brighton, CO80601 or Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.
