Dorothy Haughey

    Memorial services for Dorothy K. Haughey, 83, of Caldwell, who died Saturday, Aug. 25, 1990, at a Caldwell nursing home, will be conducted at 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 1, at St. Mary's Catholic Church, Caldwell.  Father Raul Covarrubias will officiate.
    Mrs. Haughey was born Feb. 23, 1907, at Seattle, Wash., a daughter of Capt. James and Elizabeth Moore Daniels.  Dorothy was above all a loving wife and mother.  She constantly gave her family all of herself with her unique understanding, kind nature.  As a young girl while attending high school and for the next 10 to 12 years, she worked for the Seattle Steamship Co.  She traveled extensively to Alaska in those years.  She married Joseph Haughey in 1936.  This, as far as her children are concerned, was a model marriage.  There was unbounded love, sharing and giving to each other and their children until Joseph preceded her in death on April 2, 1989.
    When her children were in their teens, Dorothy went back to work.  She was an administrative assistant for Norton Simon (Hunts Foods) for about four years.  After that she spent the next 2.5 years of her life working with her husband in research and development projects in the field of aviation and marine technological advances.
    The most important project in the development field for Dorothy and Joe which has not yet come to fruition is the Paxve Multi-Fuel Closed Cycle Engine.  This engine would burn many of the currently wasted low-grade petroleum products and coal gases and would be a major contribution to freeing our country from the problems of foreign oil dependency.  There is new interest in the Paxve engine concept and we may all see a new era of freedom from foreign oil dependency because of their efforts.
    Dorothy was very active for many years as an officer of the Soroptomist organization in Newport Beach, Calif.  She and her family had a great love of the ocean, spending a lot of time living near and on the sea.
    She is survived by two daughters and sons-in-law, Valerie and Dr. Ross Durham of Chattanooga, Tenn., and Beverly and Kenneth Hopper of Caldwell; a son and daughter-in-law, James and Lorna Haughey of Fallbrook, Calif.; seven grandchildren, David Durham of Atlanta, Ga., Crystal Durham of Chattanooga, Eric Durham of Nashville, Tenn., Evan Mcleod of Boise; Tyler Hopper of Caldwell, Dennis and Sarah Haughey, both of Fallbrook and four great-grandchildren.
    She was preceded in death by her parents and a brother, Glenn A. Daniels.
    The family suggests memorials be made to the American Cancer Society, the Alzheimer’s foundation or to a favorite charity.
