Doris enjoyed doing word puzzles, watching wheel of fortune, Jeopardy, price is right and family feud. Sometimes she loves to sit on the porch to catch some fresh breeze. Doris was an astonishing matriarch. Really, she was the imperial leader in our family. She baked and cooked and babysat her grandchildren. She was always present, part of our everyday lives in such a concrete way. Her personality who drew people in with her warm soul. She can always see the good ln people even when you don’t. see it. even if you are having a bad day coming home to her would just melt your heart with her warm embrace.

Doris cared more than most, loved more than most. Yet you never hear her complaint or be bitter. She is the type of person that would give you everything off her back and do without this is the only way she knew how to live. God has blessed her a longevity of life and she praised him until the day she passed on, She was always thankful and always asked him to bless and watch over her family. For as long as we can remember Doris always shared the importance of faith.
