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
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
