Deirdre St. George Obituary

Deirdre (Doran) St. George “Dee” 71, of Colchester, passed away peacefully on Sunday, February 4, 2024. Born October 6, 1952, in Lurgan, Co. Armagh, N. Ireland, she was the daughter of the late Michael and Maureen (Smyth) Doran.  Deirdre grew up in East Hartford and was a graduate of East Hartford High School. Deirdre was a natural caregiver and worked for several years with the elderly and as a daycare provider. She was kind, loving, gentle and compassionate. The oldest of seven, Deirdre’s maternal instincts and role began at a young age, helping her parents and siblings. She loved her family deeply and treated her friends as if they were extensions of her family. Her children, Jennifer and Brian, and Brian’s wife, Jeannie were her whole world.  Tragically, Jennifer passed away in December and Deirdre’s heart was broken.  She loved Brian and Jeannie, Jennifer and her grandchildren, Maddy & Owen, endlessly.  Maddy and Owen were her pride and joy and she cherished every moment with them. Deirdre is survived by her beloved son, Brian St. George and wife Jeannie, grandchildren, Madeline and Owen Ives. She also leaves behind her siblings, Tom and wife Elena Doran, Damian and wife Jean Doran, Donna and husband Kenny McMullan, Michael and wife Kathy Doran, and Lisa and husband Rich Corrao.  She also leaves behind numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, great nieces, and nephews whom she loved adoringly throughout her life. In addition to her parents, she is predeceased by her daughter, Jennifer Mancini and her sister Maureen Haddock and brother-in-law Paul Haddock. Dee’s family would like to thank everyone in the Colchester community for the continued help and support for Brian, Jeannie, Maddy and Owen.
