I didn't know Doris well, but she always seemed very nice and very family oriented. I was around her over the years at various church dinners and family affairs. Doris always was smiling. I know Tom and my sister, Peggy will miss her so much.

Way too many happy memories too share here, but several things stick out. Aunt Doris was always very direct; you always knew where you stood with her and she didn't tolerate any monkey business. She was the definition of firm but fair. The older I got, the more I appreciated these traits.

I'll always treasure the memories of our trips to Florida, family reunions and Christmas gatherings. But my favorite memory is from several years ago. We went on "the brothers" trip to Ireland with Aunt Doris, Uncle Bill, Aunt Peggy, Uncle Tommy, Aunt Alice, Uncle Vincent, Uncle Johnny, my mom (Janet) and my dad (Francis). It was a very special trip all the way around, but one of my favorite moments was when Uncle Bill, Aunt Doris, Cole & I walked to Leo Burdock's. We got these giant servings of fish and chips, wrapped in freezer paper, and brought them back to the pub in the hotel, ate and chatted over a pint (or two). A simple meal with great company. A truly perfect moment.

Aunt Doris, you will be missed by so many. Love you!

My Mom told me the story of when Aunt Doris and she went on their Senior Trip to New York City. They took the train up there and along the way it hit a car, which scared them both. They stayed on the 17th floor of a Hotel, which was Very high up for them. They took the trolley 🚋 car to Times Square and both were amazed at all the people and all the traffic. They went to Macy’s and then to a specific store to get a sewing machine part for her Aunt Pat. In the end my mom said that Uncle Bill met up with them because he was working at L&N at the time. My Mom also said that Aunt Doris met Uncle Bill when they would both go into Shower and Hayes Drugstore (unsure of proper name) in Etown
