I, like so many others, had the honor to know Doris for many years. She was a very kind and loving lady. Can still picture her at the piano or organ. She was active in church and an example for others. She sure could cook!! I am sure her family could attest to that. A stroke left Doris silent for many years but now she is shouting praises to her Lord and Savior. Prayers for all the family. Harold will seem more lost without his other half.

Bill and I were saddened by the news of your mom's home-going. She was always a sweet lady and always seemed to have a ready smile. Let's see, mother of many, fantastic cook, played organ and piano at church, sang in choir, taught in VBS, helped in many ways at the church and in the community--such a sweet Christian example for us all. Loved her.
