In fact a party wasn't a party without her homemade chicken or pork, Yat Gaw Mein. And family dinners will never be the same without her pig feet and collard greens. Dorine, always had an intimate relationship with the lord, as a youth she attended, St Luke's Christian Community Church, with her mother and grandmother, then in 1978, she joined St Mary's Episcopal Church, and was still an active member at the time of her passing. The children at St Mary's affectionately called, Dorine, 'The Lollipop Lady', as she would always have some sort of treat in her purse at Sunday service. Many things can be said about, Dorine, and her character. She was very avid about family and family gatherings, family was always first! Dorine was also a sports fan, a home team fan.....the Sixers, the Phillies, but when it came to the Philadelphia Eagles, win, lose, or draw she would chant E. A. G. L. E. S. EAGLES!!!!!! All day, and Lord help you if you were a fan of the opposing team and we loss! Mess around and get shown the door lol. I'll tell you this, when, Charlotte Dorine Howard, got her wings she was singing 'FLY EAGLES FLY ON THE ROAD TO VICTORY'. Dorine, was a fighter and she fought a long hard battle, beating cancer 3 times. When it hit her low her spirits were high, and she fought to the very end! And now she is on the road to victory soaring high! In Lieu of flowers please donate to the SPCA and the Cancer Society.
