Dorene E. Trego, 68, of East New Market, Maryland passed away on Saturday, April 22, 2023 at Cayuga Medical Center in Ithaca, New York.

Born on January 19, 1955 in Easton, Maryland she was the daughter of the late James Martin Callahan and Elizabeth Mildred Rampmeyer Callahan.

Dorene attended the local schools and graduated from Easton High School with the class of 1973.

Dorene and her husband Jack owned and operated Home Is Where the Heart Is Assisted Living for 28 years. When her children were young she was a certified daycare provider. Dorene was the type of person who loved taking care of others.

In her spare time she enjoyed working in her flower garden, cooking, canning, baking cakes for special occasions and working with crafts. Jack considered her the best cook around.
