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.

To Carol and family, My heart is heavy today thinking of Doris and how dearly she will be missed by you and your close knit family. I loved hearing her stories of days gone by and how close your family has remained through the years. Her memories were so detailed that it was amazing to me! She loved you all so much. I will miss her dearly…she was my friend.
