September 27, 1936 ~ July 26, 2021 (age 84)


Doris Semroska, 84, of Fort Lupton, Colorado passed away on Monday, July 26th, 2021. 

Doris was born on September 27th, 1936 to Ernest and Beatrice Wegner in Ainsworth, Nebraska.  She graduated high school in Chadron, Nebraska and continued her education, completing several college courses at Chadron State College. 

In 1955, Doris married Donald Semroska of Chadron, Nebraska.  They moved to Fort Lupton, Colorado and built a new home, where Doris resided for nearly sixty years.  Doris and Donald had four sons, Rick, Ron, Randy and Rob.   They were long-time members of St. Williams Catholic Church in Fort Lupton. 

Doris and Donald owned and operated the Fort Lupton Food Lockers, a local mom-n-pop grocery store and meat market during the 1970s.  They enjoyed many years raising their boys but the couple later divorced in 1987.  Donald passed away in 1998 after spending his final years in Harrison, Nebraska. 

After selling their business, Doris enjoyed working in the agricultural industry as an office administrator.   

Doris loved spending time with friends, playing bridge and later enjoyed spending time in the pool, exercising and socializing with her friends at the Fort Lupton Recreation Center.  Doris was passionate about spending time with her family and friends at her favorite place, Sand Hill Lake, a private boating reservoir just north of Fort Lupton.  Doris served as the Fort Lupton Boating Club’s secretary for more than 25 years. 

Doris was a dedicated and loving mother, grandmother and sister.  She is predeceased by her sons Ron and Randy, her sister MaryAnn and her ex-husband Donald.  She is survived by her sons Rick (Linda) and Rob (Jen), daughter-in-law Lisa (Randy), and her sisters Kathy (Dave) Jacovetta and Pati Kay(Mike) Earl.  She is also survived by eight grandchildren and two great grandchildren.  She will be dearly missed.
