Doris Watson Cerruti, 92, of Jersey City passed away peacefully on March 1, 2020. The facts are these. Doris was born on September 29, 1927 in Bayonne NJ to Martha and Jack Watson from Glasgow, Scotland. She is survived by three children: Debra Cerruti (Michael Jorgensen), Keith Cerruti (Eileen), Pamela Cerruti (Ellen Bloom); eight grandchildren: Brian (Kim), Mary Ellen, Billy (Kaitlin), Rebecca (Taryn), Maegan, Willem, Scott, Kevin and great-grandchild Jack. Doris was predeceased by her husband Louis J. Cerruti, two children Kevin and Dorie and her sister Ellen Gordon. For 30 years as Administrative Assistant, Doris was part of the Saint Peter’s College community. The heart is this. It’s Doris’ compassion and love that touched us most deeply. Her smile brought joy. Her support gave strength. Her constancy gave comfort. Beautiful, humble, graceful, kind, proudly Scottish, Doris loved to sew, create family feasts, sing along with Frank Sinatra and dance (remembering the good old days at OLV and St. Al’s). She loved sports and was a diehard Giants baseball fan ‘til the end. Above all, she loved her children and their children. Mommy, Ma, Grandma, Dor Dor. She was a MOTHER like no other and will be sorely missed. Please join us in celebrating her wonderful life.
