Memories Timeline


  1. When I was a young child, there were two Doris’s in my life. Doris Boldt was my mother and Doris Hallgren, my sometimes reluctant guardian. Both left enduring and endearing memories for me. Although they oft times suffered the indignities and apologies for numerous indiscretions committed by me and my best friend, Mark, the oldest of the Hallgren clan…the Doris’s always bounced back with love and care. My life changed with the passing some years back of Doris, my mother, as it has now with mother Hallgren’s passing. Now the good Lord takes over and pays them eternally back. With love, Randy

  2. with deepest sympathy during such a sad time….thinking of you and hearts and prayers are with you. Your mom is i’n such a better place and back to her loving musical self! let alone she is i’n Gods warm embrace….

  3. I remember Mrs. Hallgren with great warmth. When I was a child, I used to walk to her house weekly from Mt. View Elementary School for my piano lessons. What a sweet, precious lady she was. I was blessed to have her share music in my life.

  4. Doris was always so full of life! Ralph and Doris were great friends with my mom and dad, Margaret and Paul Johnson. They went to the Symphony Pops concerts and Omaha Community Playhouse shows together with the Longs. She was so smart, too, and talented. Wonderful lady!
