I was very sorry to hear of your loss. I have great memories of Doris over the years. Church, scouting, park band. So many good times. I know you remember those times as well. Take care.

To the family of Doris,
Your mom/grandmother was an important person in my children lives, when they attended the day care at Blessing. She treated them with love. I am positive she had influence on lives. Mary Reiter, mom of Adam, Holly, Alex, Austin and Aaron. Thank you for sharing her with us.

Dear Lee, Dean, Jill, Jay,
I just became aware of your mother's death last summer. I have so many wonderful memories of the years we all camped out west, of other gatherings and trips. She was a sweet woman and someone I always admired. Your parents truly left a legacy with each of you. I hope you all are well.
