I remember my Aunt Doris as a thoughtful and kind woman who was 100% devoted and focused on her family. She always seemed to be a very grounded and calming presence to me. She was nurturing and loving with her family and regarded people with acceptance and respect. I imagine with such attributes, she was probably a very good listener and was not quick to judge. My memories of Aunt Doris were that of a great Aunt, mother to her children, host, cook and baker. I also remember seeing trophies from her bowling and my dad, (her brother) saying, "Your Aunt Doris is a great bowler!" She was a woman who let life unfold and graciously accepted what that offered to her and appreciated it and knew she was blessed. Aunt Doris, I will miss you.......Love Forevermore.... Kathy Jo

Dear Janet, Joan, Jim & John, Your Mom was always quietly gracious whenever we descended upon your home when we were growing up. Your family, our family; all those children, all the chaos... and she smiled the whole time. Remembering her always brings a smile to my face. She will be missed by all. Francesca Martin
