LEILA CLARK DOREN Leila Clark Doren passed away peacefully on May 9, 2020 with her family by her side. Leila was born on September 16, 1933 in Montana. At nine months old she moved to Las Vegas with her family. Parents, Robert and Mae Clark, and siblings, Robert, John, Roberta, Connie, and Jeanette. Leila's father worked on the Hoover Dam and made Las Vegas their home. Leila attended Las Vegas High School where she was a majorette. She met and married Jack Doren, whom she loved and was married to for 48 years until his passing in 2002. They had two children, Tom and Carole. Daughter in law, Marlene and son in law, Lionel. She also had three grandchildren, Jordan, Alex, and Lexie. Lastly, 2 great-grand-children Lennox and Jordan. Leila lived a very colorful life. She adored music, loved attending the YMCA, parties, and visiting her many friends. She never met a stranger and loved to talk. Leila's nickname was, "Miss Beautiful" and her motto was, "Live, Love, Laugh, and Lipstick!" We will miss her laugh and her love. See you in Heaven Mom.

saying a few words for someone not known
with this lady, it's easy with the video shown
her girl is my friend the bright light I met
which I'm sure Leila had something clearly to do with
her life seemed to be a peaceful existence
appearing to have little to no external resistance
it was obvious to see by the tightness of their hands
the love that she felt for her husband
they seemed lucky to share so much more
with an overabundance
my friend Carol was made from their union
to become a wonderful daughter and a better person
Leila had to have been a pretty great mom
we heard many time with a great sense of humor
it's evident to see by all of the story's
this woman will be missed

Just a few wonderful memories of
my Aunt Leila...

~of course, her infectious laugh,

~that she always carried a tube of lipstick, which she did share freely if needed,

~ of her always being dressed beautifully,

~of her deep love for Uncle Jack, her children, their spouses, her grandchildren, their spouse and partner and her great grandchildren!

~and not to be forgotten, of her love of animals (Ill never forget that mischievous pet monkey she once had!)

My dear Aunt Leila, the world will never be the same without your enthusiasm and love of life!

With love,
Your Niece Diane and Family ❤
