DOREEN KAY (DEAHL) DAGGETT

Doreen Kay (Deahl) Daggett left her family and went to be with her Heavenly Father October 15, 2018. She was 73 years young, and was born in Seattle, WA to Floyd and Selma Deahl on March 1, 1945. She was the 2nd of three daughters. Doreen graduated in 1963 from Franklin High School and married Roger Daggett in 1965. They had two daughters, Christine and Rhonda. Doreen was a very loving grandma, affectionately called “Nana,” to her six grandchildren.

Doreen was involved for several years with Maple Valley Chamber of Commerce as well as the Maple Valley Community Center. She was also a local business owner of both Summit Accounting and an office supply store also in the Maple Valley area.

In 2001 Doreen and Roger’s life changed dramatically when she became ill with a virus that limited her ability to walk. Doreen was always very grateful for Roger’s loving care during the last 17 years.

After retirement, Doreen and Roger enjoyed traveling to Lake Havisu, Arizona for the winters. They were also a part of the Pacer’s Northwest Motor Home Club. Doreen enjoyed many years of great memories and countless friendships in both Arizona and with the Pacers.

In addition to time spent with her children and grandchildren, as well as her motor home travels, Doreen loved sewing, knitting, crocheting, and creating anything with her hands. She made blankets and quilts and enjoyed donating them to organizations for Veterans, foster children, and the homeless.

Doreen was preceded in death by her parents, Floyd and Selma. She is survived by her husband of 53 years, Roger, daughters Christine (Scott) Patton, Rhonda (Chris) Fox; grandchildren Ryan (Kym) Patton, Kaitlyn Patton, Maegan, Tyler, Allison and Madison Fox; sisters Patricia Boyovich and Denise Deahl.

Services will be held Tuesday, October 30th at Hope Fellowship, 21115 S.E. 272nd St, Maple Valley, WA. A viewing will be available from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. The Celebration of Life service will begin at 1:00 p.m. with a reception following.
