Doris C Bywater
April 2, 1931 – November 28, 2018
Doris Camaille Bywater passed away peacefully on November 28, 2018 following complications from congestive heart failure. She was born in New Orleans, Louisiana on April 2, 1931 to Ernest and Lea Camaille. She married the love of her life, George, the boy she met on a streetcar in November of 1950. He affectionately called her “Dotsy”. She briefly attended Louisiana State University but left to start their family. After having four children George’s career path led them to Franklin Lakes, New Jersey where they lived for over 25 years. Once retired they moved to Marco Island, Florida but eventually moved to Gulf Breeze to be closer to family. Dotsy loved to play bridge, competed in many tournaments and achieved the title of Life Master. She loved and enjoyed traveling the world with her husband. She had a kind heart and a generous spirit contributing to numerous charities and she was a longtime member of St. Ann’s parish.
Dotsy is survived and will be dearly missed by her four children, Steven Bywater (Jude), Richard Bywater (Barbee), Lea Sebold (Pete), Suzan Angel (Jay); 9 grandchildren, Kristie, Brian, Courtney, Steven, Travis, Ashley, Justin, Richard and Rachel; 2 great grandchildren, Mia and Matthew; her sister, Diane Sellen; 2 nieces, 2 nephews and 1 great niece.
George passed away this September and Dotsy passed away 3 days after what would have been their 68th wedding anniversary. They are once again reunited on that streetcar forever.
