Doris Gladstone

Doris (Dorie) Rose,Gladstone (Collier), of Powell, Ohio, was born in 1953, to Lilla Fay Preece and Willie Marcum Sr., in Columbus, Ohio. She passed away March 11, 2022, age 68, with her daughter by her side, at OSU Hospital.

Dorie retired from OSU Hospital in 2015, where she worked for over 30 years and made several lifelong friends.  You could find her gardening on any sunny day and she enjoyed both reading and watching any show on HGTV. Her grandsons were her world and she cherished any time she spent with them. She was, and is, very loved and she will be greatly missed.

Dorie is survived by her daughter, Jennifer Westenberger of Powell, Ohio and two grandsons whom she adored, Gabriel and Ethan; parents Willie Sr. (Fay) Marcum, loving brothers Willie Jr. (Ann) Marcum and Larry (Tracey) Marcum, nephews Willie Marcum the 3rd, Stephen (Veronica) Marcum, and Joe and Josh Marcum, uncles Donnie (Wanda) Preece and Franklin (Mavis) Preece; aunts Corrine (Jack) Ellis and Verna McKenzie. Also special life long friends Jane (Jim) and Kylie White. She will be missed terribly by our kitty, Sophia Isabella.

Preceded in death by her grandparents, William Howard Preece and Rosie (Delong) Preece of Inez, KY, brother Charles (Charlie Brown) Collier (6/1988), of Long Beach, CA, aunt Sharon (Shari) Winchester (7/2021), of Columbus, Ohio, and aunt Fern Carty; uncles James B. Preece (Uncle Buddy), Lonnie Preece, Harold Preece, Glen Ray Preece, Howard Preece Jr. and Boone Preece. Also her beloved kitty, Boo Boo Kitty.

She asked for no services, but there will be a “Celebration of Life”, (with lots of yellow roses and sunflowers), which will be announced at a later date. For more information, please feel free to contact her daughter, Jen.

“You are pulled from the wreckage

Of your silent reverie

You’re in the Arms of the Angel

May you find some comfort here”

- Sarah McLachlan duet with Josh Groban

We love you to the moon and back Mama!
