If there ever was a worthy woman as mentioned in the Bible, this was Doris. Doris was the quiet Spirit with a heart full of love for God and everyone. Doris put God first in all things. Through hard times she stayed close to a God for strength, endurance, and encouragement. I loved how she kept knowledgeable in God’s Word and enjoyed sharing with others. Through the years I have witnessed her bring comfort and joy to so many people by cards, a phone call, or have them in her home. Her home was everyone’s home. Whether to talk or to sit at her table with lots of delicious food, or a bed to rest, she knew how to make you feel wanted and welcomed. Doris truly was a special lady and she wil...l be Greatly missed. Doris has been a Wonderful Christian example to me. I will miss her sweet smile. I look forward to being with her again forever with our Lord and Almighty God. All my love.Read more

A special memory of both Doris & Al was that they came & sat at the hospital with me while my father was having heart surgery.... I can't even say how much that meant to me; Rest in Peace Doris, you were loved & will be missed
