Nance--I was sorry to read of your Mom's passing. Both Doris and Jack were remarkable people as individuals and as a team. I remember them from "Science Club" in Junior High School, and then was fortunate enough to work with and learn from your mother as teachers at MHS, where she was a quiet leader. I still remember being part of a group that was invited to your parents "retirement" home near Freedom for the celebration of their Anniversary. It may have been their 50th. It was a while ago. They were "Renaissance" people in the finest sense of the word and I am so grateful to have known them and that they became a part of my life. I wish you well as you continue your "journey" which I understand is now near Shake Rag Street. Bob

My condolences to the friends and family of Doris. There is on single woman who had more of an impact in my life than Doris. Having grown up in a poor broken family and struggling at a very young age, Doris took me under her wings and encouraged me. She stood up for me against the school board and allowed for me to take extra math classes just to catch up. She never played favoritism but rather stood by and watched me grow and stepped in to help me along when I was falling behind. She was always so proud of me and over the years and into my adult life we remained in contact. I would receive wonderful Christmas cards filled with long and wonderful stories of their annual adventures. Through her efforts I was able to graduate Menasha High School in 1985 and go on to a very successful Air Force career of 24 years. I now reside in San Antonio Texas and my biggest regret is having lost contact with her and Jack these past several years. I had often wondered her status and only learned of her passing through a random review of the Appleton Post Crescent Obituaries. Family and friends I want you to know that Doris had a huge impact in my life and the path that I chose. I am so deeply saddened of her passing. I will be up to Wisconsin for a Green Bay Packer game and hope to pay my respect to Jack and Doris.
