Doris was a sweet lady. I was in a diet support group with her for many years. My mother was a regular shopper at Doris's Dress Shop. Prayers of comfort for all the family and friends.
So sorry to hear about Doris. She was a friend of my mother (Betty Boyd). They enjoyed watching lots of Flora High School athletic events together and also going on several bus tours to fun places. I miss my mother, and know that Doris will be greatly missed too. Sending you my condolences.
