Doris Sadowski Obituary

Doris Jean Sadowski, 93 of Cheboygan, peacefully passed away on March 10, 2024 surrounded by her family.

Doris was born on September 20, 1930 in Highland Park, MI, the daughter of Clarence and Doris (Wines) McAfee and was raised in Detroit, where she attended Southeastern High School and later Wayne State University, working for a time in the Engineering Department at Park Davis. She later worked as a substitute teacher and in the Library at St. Cyril and Methodius, where she also served on the Alter Society.

On August 2, 1952 in Detroit, Doris married Alex Sadowski and the two made their home in the Detroit area until after Alex’s retirement in 1991, when they moved to Cheboygan and have resided since. Alex preceded Doris in death on March 27, 2018.

Like her husband Alex, Doris was an avid Detroit Red Wings fan, and enjoyed making Christmas ornaments and doing bead work. She was a long-time resident at the Brook in Cheboygan where she took part in their bible study and in her youth, enjoyed playing Pinochle. 

She is survived by her three daughters, Mary (Jim) Norris of the Dominican Republic, Anne (Joe) Stemmer of Indian River, and Carol (Gene Obidzinsk) Hartley of Harrison Township; grandchildren, Linda (Chris) LaTocha, Joseph (Lauren) Stemmer, Stephan (Madolynn) Stemmer, and Kyle Hartley; three great-grandchildren, Luke LaTocha, Elliot Stemmer and Emilia Stemmer; sister, Lois McAfee of Rochester Hills, MI; and several nieces and nephews.

Doris was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Alex; and by a granddaughter, Elizabeth Stemmer.
