Germaine L. (Heidenreiter) Doro, age 91, of Howards Grove, passed away peacefully on Saturday, May 21, 2022, at St. Nicholas Hospital in Sheboygan, WI.
Germaine was born on Friday the 13th in June 1930 to Victor and Marie (Mueller) Heidenreiter in Sheboygan Falls, WI. She was baptized, confirmed, and married at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Sheboygan Falls.
She worked at Sheboygan Dry Goods, Rose Glove Co., and Richardson Brothers.
In October 1954, Germaine was united in marriage to the love of her life, Jim Doro. They took over Doro’s Bar from his mother in 1963.
Germaine taught Sunday School for many years and was a member of Ladies Aid and helped at St. Paul’s Lutheran School in Howards Grove.
Germaine loved to read, and over the years she probably read every book that the bookmobile had to offer. She always enjoyed games, especially card games. She had a big and happy smile for everyone that will be dearly missed.
