Doris Arlene Samtak (Nee Quint), age 91 of North Haledon passed away peacefully on Monday, September 14, 2020. Born and raised in Wyckoff, NJ she moved to North Haledon, and resided there for the past 60 years.

Doris met her beloved husband Frank in 1954 when he was her patient at St. Joseph’s Hospital and has been happily married for 63 years.

Dear Frank and Family, I am saddened by this news. Doris and I had many good laughs together! She was a warm and lovely person, wife, mother, grandmother and friend. Her world revolved around her family. She will be truly missed! Rest in peace my dear friend!

I will always remember my aunt as a woman who opened her home and heart to anyone in need. We never knew who was joining us for Thanksgiving dinner. She treasured her family and will be sadly missed by all.
