Doreen Rosenthal

March 31, 1925 ~ June 7, 2022 (age 97)


Doreen W. Rosenthal (Skeate), 97, went peacefully to heaven on June 7, 2022 in Scottsdale, AZ. after a long battle with dementia. Formerly of Rio Verde, AZ and Edina, MN. Doreen was born in Sauk Rapids, Minnesota on March 31, 1925, the seventh of ten children, to Katherine Hildegard (Thielman) and Royal William Skeate.                                                       

Doreen married Lawrence “Bud” Rosenthal in 1951 in Minneapolis, MN. They were blessed with 2 children, Ross and Jody.

Doreen was always active and loved volleyball and gymnastics as a young girl. She became an avid golfer after meeting Bud, and she even won several club championships at Golden Valley CC.  Doreen loved music, kept a meticulous house and was a great cook! She supported her kids in all their activities, was a favorite “home room” mom, and had a wonderful competitive spirit that was passed onto both her children.                                                                                   

Doreen was preceded in death by her husband Bud in 1995, and by all 9 of her siblings, Bernice (Rogosheske), Lucille (Knafla), Kenneth, Eldon, Lois (Evans), Royal Jr., Leonard, June (Barnes), and Wesley. She is survived by her children Jody (Fred Anschutz), Ross (Stacey), Grandchildren Adam (Abby), Max (Anna), and Ali, and Great-Granddaughter Ren.           

Doreen will be remembered for her warm smile, vibrant spirit, strong faith and deep love for family. A private burial will take place.  Memorials may be made to Community Church of the Verdes in Rio Verde, AZ, or the Alzheimers Association.
