Kelly Anne Doroski loved being a stay-at-home mom and spending her time with the two men in her life, her fiancé, Max Corrigan, and their 22-month-old son, Joshua Aiden.
Born on May 15, 1989, in Southampton to William J. Doroski and the former Patricia L. Smith, she grew up in Sag Harbor, and graduated from Pierson High School.
Though she attended Suffolk County Community College for a time, her true love was someplace else, her mother said. She and Mr. Corrigan met at Starbucks, where they both worked, about four years ago. They became fast friends and fell in love, her mother said.
When their son was born, Ms. Doroski decided that she wanted to stay home with him, her mother said. “She loved to put the baby in the stroller and go walking.”
The couple recently moved to East Hampton, where Mr. Corrigan works for the AT&T store. When interviewed by The Star last summer, he was a whirling multitasker, answering phones and helping several customers at once, but when Ms. Doroski called, all that would come to a rest. He always had time for her. They were the perfect pair, her mother said. “He was rock-steady and pragmatic, she was free-spirited.”
Ms. Doroski died in a car crash on Route 114 in East Hampton last Thursday.
Besides her fiancé and her son, she is survived by her parents, and three siblings, Tracy Doroski, William Doroski, and Alice Delacruz, all of Sag Harbor.
A memorial gathering will be held today at the Yardley and Pino Funeral Home in Sag Harbor at 11 a.m. Friends and family have been asked not to dress in mourning, but to wear bright colors to celebrate Ms. Doroski’s life.
The family has suggested donations in her name to the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons, P.O. Box 901, Wainscott 11975.
