Re: Obit + Photo for Doris Ruth Foreman

Foreman, Doris R. McHale, 87, of Absecon, NJ, with "no regrets", our Mother and Grand mom died Thursday November 8, 2018 after a battle with cancer. Mom grew up in Atlantic City, Bungalow Park sailing and swimming in Snug Harbor and attending many hockey games in Convention Hall. She married our dad, William B. Foreman and together they moved to Absecon and raised their family. Mom was active in the PTA, Cresset Club, Historical Society and more. They traveled around the U.S., Germany, Hungry, Austria, Canada, Alaska and her favorite, Ireland. Her heart was in the home and believed homemaking is an art. She was a Pac-rat who saved everything long before recycling was popular, and never understood a dirty joke even after it was explained to her. An avid hockey fan, she cheered for the Flyers and was known to emit earsplitting screams to the chagrin of everyone in the vicinity.

She is predeceased by her husband, Bill, of 45 years and survived by Son Robert, Daughter Billie, "third child", son-in-law Jim Finegan and grandkids; Amy, Matt, Adam, Andrew, Megan, Patrick and six great-grandkids.

Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend Doris's Life Celebration Graveside Service on Wednesday November 14, 2018 at 2:00PM at Atlantic County Veterans Cemetery, Estelle Manor, NJ. Friends and family are invited to attend a gathering in Mom's honor at the home of Jim and Billie following burial.
