Doris June Meyer was born on August 28, 1925 in Chicago, Illinois. Doris was the third of four children of Patrick McCauley and Eleanor O’Rourke.

Doris was a loving wife and homemaker for 61 years. Together they raised their four children in the Chicago area. Gene’s company relocated corporate headquarters to Rancho Bernardo in 1978, and they enjoyed the past 32 years in Southern California.

Doris loved her four children, their spouses, and all of her nine grandchildren very much. She was a devout Catholic, and was always proud of her Irish heritage.

    We are sincerely sorry for the loss of your dear wife and mother. Aunt Doris deeply loved her family, was extremely proud of them and their accomplishments, and always looked forward to the “next occasion” to be with everyone. I will truly miss my weekly conversations with Aunt Doris. She was always cheery,upbeat,and positive.
