Doreen from La Mesa, CA
Miss Hollywood


Doreen Walsh is an amazingly sweet and humble woman with a smile that lights up a room. In the early 1940's Doreen, then a young beautiful woman in her early 20's was also an accomplished dancer. She took a jog working for MGM studios and went on to dance in several musical motion pictures of that era. Two of her famous co-stars included, Fred Astire and Judy Garland. For her dream Doreen wanted to once again capture that hollywood magic and to showcase her work for our residents. With the help of the maintainence staff we were able to transform our auditorium into a red carpet premier style event. Doreen's family provided a film that featured clips from several of her films. We served popcorn and beverages and had showed her work on our big theatre screen for all residents to see. It was a very special event and Doreen found herself moved to tears.
