Doris M. (Carbon) Clooney

It is with great sadness that the family of Doris Clooney, 85, of Medford, passed away on
Saturday, May 2, 2020. Doris was born in Malden and graduated from Malden High School in 1952. She
was a bookkeeper for a local CPA office in Medford for many years. She married Stephen Clooney in
1955 and raised four sons.
Doris lived a full life in which she found many joys, including antique collecting, spending
summers at the family cottage in New Hampshire, and spending her days cooking, baking, and hosting
holiday meals.
Doris was a fan of Irish music and collected Irish china. She took her lifetime dream trip to
Ireland with her extended family in 1981.
Doris will be missed greatly by her family and friends. She was preceded in death by her
husband, Stephen W., and her sons, Steven M. and James P. Clooney. She is survived by her two
children, Thomas P. Clooney (Lynne), Robert F. Clooney (Annette), and her loving grandchildren, Nicole,
Amanda, Jesse, Hunter, Molly, Brendan, Chip, and Katy.
A private family memorial service will be held at a later date.
Memorial donations in memory of Doris can be sent to a charity of your choice.


Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

    Dear Lori and Katy,

    We are so sorry, we love Doris and are going to miss her so much.
    I know Katy is going to miss her Chinese checkers and Friday night dinners with her.
    We enjoyed spending the holidays with her too. Christmas Eve won’t be the same without her smiling face.

    Sending you lots of love and hugs.

    Love Dawn, Andrew and Robbie.

    Dear Lori & Katy,

    I know that losing Doris is a devastating loss. I’m so sorry for both of you and for the rest of the Clooney family.

    Lori you were truly a beacon for Doris helping her whenever she needed you. But just as important was the time spent and the closeness of your relationship with Doris at each visit, each errand and every holiday and dinner spent together. I remember the Brimfield Flea market you and Steve enjoyed with Doris, Steve and Jim.

    Doris was loved by the entire Cashman family and I offer my sympathy to all of you.

    She will be missed. My love and prayers to you and Katy at this challenging time.
