Obituary for Doreen Marie Kaeter (Wocken)

Our loving nurturing, always joyful, Mother has died. June 23rd, 2023. She lived 94 years with grace and style. Beginning a career as a beautician and instructor at St. Cloud Beauty College. She opened her own shop in her home so she could raise her 5 children and make all the neighborhood ladies beautiful at the same time. She grew up swimming in the granite quarries. She was a dare devil diver and swam gracefully well into her 80's. A love of animals, large and small prompted a purchase of a farm, with her husband, Sy where she taught herself to garden and make her own butter, grape juice, bread and maple syrup. Her many grand and great grandchildren will forever remember her cookie jars always full and her incredible caramel rolls. Always generous, her later years she worked as an aide at a skilled nursing facility until she, herself needed care. She will be missed and always remembered with Love.

Preceded in death by her husband, Sy; son, Gary and brother, Marvin Wocken. Survived by children, Sharon Morgan (David), Dale Kaeter, Rick Kaeter and Jim Kaeter (Denise); grandchildren, Janelle Herrera, Jennifer Kaeter, Laura Kaeter, Anna Kaeter, Danny Kaeter, Barbie Feia, Jackie Schmaltz and Phil Victory.
