I worked with Dorine at University Village in Tulsa. Dornine is such a sweet person with a genuine love for God and people. I last saw Dorine at Victory Christian Center at a church service. I am thankful to our mutual friend, Donna, for letting me know about Dorine. I know she is rejoicing with God today. Love and prayers to all the family and friends during this time. God bless,Bobbie Hausner/Stockwell Sides
