March 16, 1938 - April 14, 2021
Dorrene Carol George Gilbert born March 16, 1938 in Pasco, Washington passed away on April 14, 2021. Dorrene lived the majority of her life in the Tri-Cities, and also lived in Ocean Shores, Washington throughout her retirement years where she helped design and manage construction of her home and enjoyed the breathtaking views of Gray's Harbor and the mountains. She outlived John Wesley George, her American Russian German father, and Clara Dorothy Miller George, her American German mother. She also outlived her younger brothers John Ronald, Loren Leon, and Richard Eugene. She graduated in 1955 from Kennewick High School, and attended Columbia Basin College through 1958, and graduated from Washington State University with a teaching degree, all with Honors. She resided in Richland, Kennewick, Pullman, and Ocean Shores, Washington; Hinsdale and Oak Lawn, Illinois. She married Edgar Robert Gilbert on June 15, 1957, and raised five children: Carol Marie (Gilbert) Albers, Robert Alan Gilbert, Cynthia Denise (Gilbert) Parks, Diane Elizabeth (Gilbert) Perry, and Richard Lane Gilbert. She loved and enjoyed spending time with her seven grandchildren: Jeffrey and Stephen Gilbert, Kelli (Gilbert) Strait, Noah and Paige Perry, and Tim and Desi Albers. She adored her four great-grandchildren: Mackenzie, Teagan, Carter, and Greyson Gilbert. Dorrene was a loyal, loving wife and mother. Her exceptional skills in homemaking, cooking, sewing, and gardening gave her great satisfaction and we were all spoiled. Dorrene enjoyed travel adventures with her husband and children. She loved her career at Mid-Columbia Library, always an avid reader and very fond of historical fiction. Her love for all animals was always apparent, and she especially had a strong caring bond with her beloved dogs through the years. Our hearts are broken forever, but love is eternal. A private memorial service will be held for family.
