Deighton, Valda,Benjie, Clyde other members of the Family and friends it is with much sadess that Judith and I our sympathy to all.
With Doreen I was not very well acquainted nevertheless from all that I have heard she was a decent well respected and dedicated person. This is verified by the fact that she devoted most of her life to educating, assisting and uplifting people around the world.
She will be missed by all, but fear not as she is on her way to a safer and better place. There her godmother Doreen Millington awaits her and one day we too will join them.
May She Rest In Peace.

We were saddened to hear about the loss of our very good friend Doreen. We were very close to her and enjoyed the times we had together when she came to visit and especially the time we visited her in Africa. She was an excellent example of what Christ is like and we loved her much. Condolences to the family. You had a wonderful sister. Oh, that there would be more like her. We will miss her greatly.

Our sincere condolences to the Maynard Family. As past students of The Alleyne School, Miss Maynard was our Biology Teacher. She was pleasant,quiet, smiled easily and quite intelligent.
As a servant of God, she has finished her course and now there is a crown of righteousness awaiting her. May she rest in peace.

We first met Doreen in 1979 in Abidjan , Ivory Coast . We thought she was a brave lady to go to a foreign country to spread the gospel . She and her companion were very kind in looking after us and our four children and showed us around the city.
We will always have fond memories of Doreen.
We send our sympathy to the family and friends at this time.
