Call Me Anna, First and Ten, Torch Song Trilogy, Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot and Who Speaks for Jonathan are well- remembered fi lms that were admired not only for their drama, but for their creative excellence as well. Doreen was the department head on so many popu- lar television series such as Lost, Party of Five, The Suite Life on Deck, The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, along with The Fosters, The Wonder Years and Tales From the Crypt. Upon learning of Doreen's passing, Local 706/Local 665 member Tania Kahale and Joanne Miyata (Local 665) expressed their admiration in a loving tribute from Hawaii. "Doreen arrived at Diamond Head Studios with great determination and a 'can do' attitude. She was a leader in the truest sense with exceptional skills, knowledge, pas- sion, integrity and kindness. Her stan- dards were very high and she did not settle for anything less from the Hair Department. She elevated our skills and never limited our abilities, knowing that we were capable. Doreen, her hus- band Robert and daughter Bryce made Hawaii home for fi ve years, embracing the people, lifestyle and culture. She brought us all together, infusing our families and we shared many good times personally. We are forever grate- ful and will remember her generosity, compassion, beautiful smile, passion for life and most of all, her friend- ship—she changed our lives." Those same sentiments have been repeated by so many of her friends. Robert spoke of his love for her by calling Doreen "his gift, his wife, his angel." She is also survived by Bryce and nieces Marissa and Shane Salmon. Doreen was very private about her bat- tle with cancer as she fought valiantly. She intended to overcome and return to the work she loved so much. Sadly, she lost her battle early in the morning of July 24, 2016. A future memorial will be announced as soon as details are provided.
