Doris Irene Wieloszynski


Doris Irene Wieloszynski, longtime resident of Niagara Falls, went to be with the Lord, passing away peacefully in Nashville, TN, on Monday, May 20, 2019 from complications of bladder cancer. She was in her 92nd year. Doris was born in her home in LaSalle on February 7, 1928 to the late Ira and Aletha (Travis) Nelson.
Doris attended Pacific Avenue School and LaSalle HS (1945) as well as Bryant & Stratton in Buffalo in 1946.
She was the organist for 20 years and long-time member and church secretary for a number of years at First United Methodist Church in LaSalle; and often hired for her musical skills at many local events, weddings and funerals. Doris was keyboardist for the Retired Men's Chorus for 40 years, performing at local nursing homes and convalescent centers.
Doris is predeceased by her husband of 52 years, Edwin A. Wieloszynski; and is survived by two sons, Paul E. (June) Wieloszynski of Mt. Juliet, TN, and John David (Kimberly) Wieloszynski of Amherst, NY; as well as eight grandchildren, one great-grandchild. She is also predeceased by her brother, Burton Nelson (1940); and sister, Vera Mae (Nelson) Schulze (2014); and lifelong friend Richard H. "Dick" Lacey, also of Niagara Falls.
Doris loved being with her two sons' families, many friends and extended family over the years, and made a point to always stay in touch with most through cards, letters and phone. She was a good friend to all who knew her.
A memorial service for Doris will be held at First United Methodist Church, 8210 Buffalo Avenue, Niagara Falls, NY, on a date and time to be announced in 2020. Graveside services will be for family only.
In lieu of flowers, please send a donation to the American Lung Association.

Doris was the most resilient human being I’ve ever known. She loved her family and her friends. She was practical, realistic, fair, and so many other good things. I have many good memories. And, am fortunate to have been a part of her life. I will always love her. God speed Doris. Vaya con Dios.

Doris was a beautiful person. I loved to talk to her. I

I came to know her when my husband, Milt used to sing with the Retired Men's Chorus and we would chat every so often.She always reminded me that we were special because our last name was Nelson which was also her maiden name.

Although I have not seen you in quite some time, I always enjoyed see you at the family get together''s. I am glad I had the opportunity to write you a letter and get one back not long ago. Was nice hearing from you again. Now you are at peace with our heavenly father and we will meet again some day. Sorry Paul to you and your family. You took amazing care of her.

Paul and family. So sorry for your loss. My mom knew yours from First Methodist Church. Always had nice conversations with your mom when I would see her. She shared memories of my mom with me. Was always glad to hear them. You are all in our prayers.

I was so sorry to hear of her passing. The Wieloszynkis were our "across the street" neighbors for almost 50 years. May she rest in peace
