Doris LaVonne Homan
Doris Homan, 93 of Amelia Island passed away on December 2 at her home.
Born on December 23, 1928 in Sioux Falls, SD she lived in Joplin, MO and Red Bank, NJ where she graduated from Red Bank Catholic High School. Post high school she attained an RN Diploma from St. Vincent’ Hospital and went on to be a registered nurse in New York City.
In 1950 she married Eugene Homan and five years later they were blessed with their first child Dianne, followed by Jon and Greg who all survive their mother. In addition to her children, she is survived by several grandchildren and great- grandchildren which were the joys of her life.
After her time as a nurse, she spent a number of years as a great mother and wife. She loved to bowl, attend the University of Delaware football games with her husband and friends and spent a lot of time in Ocean City MD where her and her husband loved to be at the beach. Once her children were grown, she began to take on many volunteer activities.
Once dad retired, they settled in Amelia and mom became an avid golfer and a serious Mahjong player. As they began their life in Amelia Island mom loved being a volunteer at Baptist Hospital in Fernandina Beach where she not only enjoyed being a greeter – as her father was at a local hospital in Red Bank NJ - but loved watching the hospital grow and help more people in the community. Mom and dad’s Catholic faith was very important to them and they became active members of the St Michael church community in Fernandina.
Funeral Mass will be at St Michael Church on December 7, 2022 at 11 am.
She will be laid to rest next to her loving husband at Bosque Bello Cemetery at a later date.
Donations in her memory can be made to St Michael Catholic School.
