Dorinda Gene Gregg

June 7, 1944 ~ March 11, 2022 (age 77)

Tribute

Dorinda Gene (Wood) Gregg was born on June 7, 1944, in Storm Lake, Iowa to Virginia and Eugene Wood. She was the oldest of two children. Her brother, Robert, was born in 1946. Her father served in the military, so in her younger years the family moved often. This experience resulted in a deep bond with her mother, brother, and extended family. Even though they moved a lot, Storm Lake would always be a beloved place she visited throughout her life.

 

When she was 13, Dorinda and her family moved to and settled in San Mateo, CA where she excelled in school, made close friends and was active in the youth group, Methodist Youth Fellowship. Dorinda attended Hillsdale High School where she met her future husband, Ronald Gregg. This was the beginning of a beautiful friendship and love affair of 52 years.

 

Dorinda graduated from San Jose State University with a bachelor’s degree in Social Work. During her last year of college, she and Ron married and soon started a family. They had two children Jennifer (Gregg) Pleimann and Michael Gregg. When her children were a bit older, she returned to school and earned a master’s degree in Marriage, Family and Child Counseling. She had a successful private practice for many years.

 

After Ron died in 2018, she moved to Henderson, NV to live with her daughter, Jennifer.

 

Dorinda will be remembered as an amazing wife, mother, sister, grandmother, and friend, and one of the most beautiful, kind and giving people this earth has known. She loved going to the movies and taking road trips with Ron! She also enjoyed walking, swimming, playing golf, and going to her cabin at Lake Tahoe.

 

Dorinda is survived by her children Jennifer (Thomas), Mike (Susan), and grandchildren, Lauren, and Justin. She is also survived by her brother, Robert, and her sister-in-law, Sherry, and brother-in-law, Kent (Liz). She is preceded in death by her husband, Ron, her parents, and brother-in-law, Albert.

 

In celebration of a great life, a memorial service will be held on Wednesday, April 13 at 1:00 PM at Campbell Memorial Chapel, 231 E. Campbell Ave. Campbell, CA 95008. Reception to follow. Donations in Dorinda’s memory may be made to The Alzheimer’s Association and/or Keep Tahoe Blue.
