On Friday, February 25, 2022, Doris Marie Bergeron (nee: Dugal) passed away at 95 years old. She was born on August 21, 1926 in Fall River, Massachusetts to the late Louis Eugene Dugal and Marie Louise Dugal (nee: Truchon). She was the youngest child in the family and was raised in Fall River along with her six older brothers. After a long courtship, she married her soul-mate, Alfred “Al” Ludger Bergeron, on October 20, 1956, and they remained devoted to each other for the rest of their lives. In 1968 she moved with her family to Somerset, Massachusetts, and in 2006 she and Al moved to Charlestown Retirement Community in Catonsville, Maryland, where she passed.
Doris graduated from Jesus Mary Academy in 1945 and moved on to pursue a career as a beautician until her son Paul was born, after which she selflessly devoted herself to raising a family and caring for those she loved. She was deeply religious and was a member of and supported many religious organizations. She volunteered at St. Anne’s Hospital in Fall River to help those in need and at Charlestown for the years she lived there. She loved spending time with others, was always ready to meet a new friend and had a pleasant word to say about everyone. The center of her life was her husband Al. The couple was frequently seen holding hands and looking lovingly at each other. They were an example of commitment and love that any couple would aspire to.
Doris is survived by her devoted spouse of 65 years, Alfred; her adoring son, Paul G. Bergeron (and his wife, Andrea); her loving grandchildren, Paul “PJ” Bergeron and Madeline Marie Barker (and her husband, Zachary); and her darling great granddaughter, Evelyn Barker. She was predeceased by her brothers Lionel (Jack), Joseph (Joe), Theodore (Teddy), Maurille, Rene, and Gerard (Jerry). Doris was loved by all and her gentleness and care for others will be forever remembered and missed.
A Memorial Mass will be held for Doris at Our Lady of Angels, 717 Maiden Choice Lane, Catonsville, Maryland, Wednesday, 12:00 PM. March 9, 2022. A Memorial Gathering with the family will be at 11:30 AM at Our Lady of Angels, Wednesday, March 9, 2022. She will be buried in Notre Dame Cemetery, Fall River, Massachusetts.
