Doraline M. Fleeman (88), of Reno, Nevada passed away peacefully on February 3, 2018, surrounded by her surviving children. Doraline was born on October 30, 1929 in Goldfield, Nevada to John and Eleanor Magura. Thereafter, she was raised in Sonora, California by her very loving adoptive parents, Hap and Laura Fitzgerald. Doraline graduated from Sonora High School and married her high school sweetheart Victor Viglienzoni. Together they had five children; Susan, Nicholas, Peter, Theresa and Marie Viglienzoni. Eventually she moved the four younger children to Southern California where she had a very successful career at Siemens Pacesetter. She remained there until she retired to Reno in 1994 with her husband, Billy J Fleeman (dec.).
Doraline was a resident of Reno for over twenty years after retiring there and very quickly became a dedicated and exemplary volunteer at the Assistance League of Reno/Sparks for seventeen of those years. She met many new friends and developed countless wonderful friendships with other members of the Assistance League. Doraline also loved shopping at antique and relic shops in her spare time and could not pass one without popping in to see what sort of treasures awaited her discovery. She amassed a small collection of various antiques, favorite dolls, and unique tea sets. Doraline was an avid reader and seamstress. Her knitting basket, usually at her side, always contained the latest novel from one of her many favorite authors as well as the latest sewing/knitting project. She loved animals especially her cats and donated generously to a number of animal charities. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her and especially by those whose lives she touched so deeply.
Doraline is survived by her son, Peter; daughters, Theresa and Marie Viglienzoni; two sisters, Jean and Kathy; baby brother, Chuck; eight grandchildren, ten great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.
Doraline was preceded in death by her first husband, Victor Viglienzoni (2004); son, Nicholas (2011); and oldest daughter, Susan Pagni (2018).
The immediate family will hold a private memorial later this summer in Goldfield, Nevada, spreading her ashes with other family members there.
Doraline asked that in lieu flowers or cards, donations be made in her memory to the ASPCA or similar organizations involved in helping animals.
