Mrs Doris Lillian Jacquelin Stempowicz
Birth: Mar. 16, 1919
Providence County
Rhode Island, USA
Death: Feb. 14, 2002
Middlesex County
Connecticut, USA

Doris was a highly talented but unrecognized artist having done many oil paintings and pen and ink drawings, mostly notably of Native American life. She also did extensive art design work on a rifle engraving presented to an American President.

As she was half Native American of the Blackfoot tribe, Doris was also known as "Firefly" to her Native American friends. Her extensive associations and friendships with other Native Americans led her to be offically adopted into the Narraganset tribe based in Rhode Island.

Daughter to the late Harry L. Jacquelin & Bernice (Wadleigh) Jacquelin. She was a widow, being married to Lee Stempowicz and was mother of an only child; Jean Lee (aka; Gina Lee)- She left behind her daughter, a grand-daughter Jaime Lee & a grandson Jared Matthew. She also left a sister Virginia Limauro of Branford, Ct., and brother the late Gene Jacquelin of Wallingford, Ct.. She was predeceased by 3 brothers; Joseph Jacquelin of Philadelphia, Pa., Lawrence Jacquelin of New Haven, Ct., and half-brother Jack Reynolds, of Pelham, NY.

In accordance with her wishes she was cremated. Her final resting place overlooks the graves of her parents and brother Lawrence. Her death was due to Alzheimers Disease.
