    I am so deeply sorry to hear of Doris death. I was not aware of her illness. We were school buddies at Sunnyside School and in 4H together. Lots of great memories.

    Doris was a wonderful neighbour and friend, as well as Jaena's "walking buddy" for many years. Doris, you are deeply missed. God bless you and your family.


    To our loved and cherished family member we love you deeply and will always cherish the moments and the love that you gave to all

    Doris was a wonderful neighbor. We rode the bus together, and visited when our mothers, got together with the Lucas Women's Club. So sad when all your friends are leaving. May God Bless Doris and all her family.

    I knew Doris while I worked at the Neighbors ... The sweetest, kindest lady I have ever met. Seeing her was the highlight of my day. May memories of this exceptional woman comfort those who loved her.
