Her caring heart saturated her surroundings and impacted the lives of all who knew her.  Her gifted hands created beautiful art and her culinary skills were second to none. She loved music and anything to do with beauty. Dorneia saw beauty in all things.  Dorneia graduated from the Burrows School of Art in Guyana; there she excelled at Sculpting, Calligraphy and Graphic Design.  She also graduated from Singers Sewing School in Guyana.

Her memories will be cherished, and she will be deeply missed by all who had the honor and pleasure to know her.
