Doris M. Current, my Mom, passed away Monday May 1, 2017, at the incredible age of 99 3/4. Born July 27, 1917, Mama lived in San Diego, attended the "old Grey Castle" San Diego High School and went on to work at General Dynamics during WW2. Mama spent part of her tiem in Yuma, AZ visiting her Aunt, met and eventually married my Dad in March of 1947. They were the "Rhett and Scarlett" couple for 55 years. My Mom was a fashion icon, always dressed to to the "nine", classy and elegant, lipstick never out of place. As a wife she was supportive and devoted, and never afraid to voice her opinion or thoughts.

As a Mother, she was like no other. She made doll clothes, nursed all of the animals I brought home, wiped many a nose and knee, and gave the best love a daughter could ask for. As a Nana, she loved her granddaughter to the Moon and back. Always believing her artistic abilities would carry her on to a successful future, Nana never lost hope. As a Great Grandnana, she held the twins with a love so tender and special, one will never forget the joy they brought to her late in her life. mama loved the babies!

Preceded to Heaven by my Dad, Frank Current, and survived by her Daughter, Lisa, Granddaughter, Michele and Great Grandsons, Parker and Grayson. Mama will be dearly missed for her fiery spirit, fashion sense and deep love for her family.

Her family wishes to extend their gratitude to Scripps Hospice, La Joll and Dr. William Land. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Greater San Diego ChildHelp Chapter.
