SWANSEA - Doris Joyce Stockman Pooley entered her eternal rest on May 11, 2020.
A Memorial Service will be held later due to all that is happening in our world, so information will follow when we figure that all out. She will be cremated.
Doris was born September 20, 1934, in Kings County, New York. She was the second child of Martin Francis and Augustine Marie Schulz Stockman Sr., and granddaughter to Michael Andrew Stockman (Phebe Grube) and Herman John Schulz (Marie Ida Dietze).
Doris was predeceased by her husband Malcolm, and leaves behind 5 children, Susan A. Pooley Eleazer (Michael ‘Mike’ D. Eleazer), Lorraine J. Pooley, Linda J. Pooley, James M. Pooley and Kenneth B. Pooley. She also leaves two grandsons, David B. Eleazer and Michael B. Eleazer; her beloved granddaughter-in-love, Katherine McKittrick Eleazer; and two great grandsons, Malcolm M. and Tillman W. She was predeceased by her parents, Martin Francis and Augustina Marie Schulz Stockman Sr., and her brother, Martin Francis Stockman Jr. She also leaves her beloved sister-in-law, Eleanore Pastir Stockman; her nieces and nephews, Sandy Stockman Gannon (Eugene), Martin Stockman III (Kathy) Barbara Stockman Destmartin (Olivier) and Michael Stockman; as well as her great nieces and nephews.
Doris was a 1954 graduate of Centenary Junior College for Women, now Centenary University, in Hackettstown, New Jersey. She sang on the radio before she married. She went back to school and graduated from Voorhees and became a teacher with the Denmark-Olar School district, teaching reading, first grade, and sixth grade. She loved children and in her later years enjoyed doing Trunk or Treat at the church she attended with her daughter Linda, who she lived with.
Doris was also one of Nassau County Police Department’s most ardent fans, and cheered the Softball team her husband managed all the way to the World Championship title. She and her bell could be heard all over the park cheering for the policemen who played for the team, or in the gym cheering on the NCPD Basketball team.
She loved her grandchildren and great grandchildren very much. She leaves her precious puppy dog, Fuzz, and had a passion for animals.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Centenary University, 400 Jefferson Street Hackettstown, New Jersey 07840.
The Family would like to thank MSA Irmo and MSA Orangeburg Hospice for their love and care. We all would like to say how much we appreciate our sister Linda for her years of love and care to our Mom.
