I did not know Doris,but I knew of her through her daughther Sue. Sue had such joy when talking about her. We had both lost our Dads around the same time,and it was something we both understood,losing a parent. I am so sorry that she has now lost her mom,like I have. May God bring memories that fill all of their hearts and may they know that Heaven was waiting for Doris to enter into the wonder of Gods promises. She is with those she loved and had
passed away before her. She is now whole with no pain etc…May God keep Sue and her family comforted thru His word and the prayers others are saying for all of them. Linda

So sorry about the loss of your Mom. I have known Doris since elementary school at Resurrection. We were good friends in school and have lunched together a few times in the past few years. I will remember her as a quiet, gentle soul who never had a bad word for anyone. What a legacy! May God grant you comfort and peace.

Doris was a beautiful lady and a great blessing. She always invited me in for a few words. She always interested to see how I was doing and how I was getting along. If there was something that needed to be done, she made sure it was taken care of.
