My mom was a very special mom, we did a lot of shopping together and baking together. We had our favorite and that was making divinity candy. Our special day out of the year was going black Friday shopping, my mom would be ready by 5 am with her little blue purse and ready to go to her favorite store, JC Penney. She would have a ball buying clothes for all her children. Once we were done at the mall we would go eat at Piccadilly or The Ryan. I love and miss my mom dearly she is finally resting in peace. God Bless her soul.

Biographie

While it is possible to receive good counsel from a wide circle of family and friends, few could do it with the skill and aptitude of Doris Granger Fruge. She had a true talent for helping others reach their full potential and brought out the best in those who sought her help. Doris was a forward-looking woman whose personality was filled with empathy toward everyone she met. She could be quiet and reserved, but her style of communication was authentic and direct. An excellent communicator, Doris was a master at using imagery when she explained her ideas and concepts. She seemed to have an endless supply of innovative concepts and strategies for how to help those around her. Her sensitivity, kindness and generous attitude made her a wonderful friend for all who knew her.

From the time she was born on December 25, 1936, Doris showed a deep concern for others. She was a giving and caring individual, ethical and full of integrity and warmth. Doris came into this world by a midwife in Evangeline Parish in near Oakdale, Louisiana. Her parents were Aros Granger and Jessie Mae Bond Granger. Doris was raised in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

Because fellowship was so important to her, Doris promoted harmony with her siblings. She was raised with seven siblings. She had one older brother, Chester, three younger brothers, Gene, Alton (Chuck) and Albert (A.D.); and three younger sisters, Margaret, Patricia (Trish) and Alice. She helped to settle problems and conflicts and kept the family running smoothly.

As a young girl, Doris interacted well with other children. She was helpful. She was an independent person who had a vivid imagination. Doris had a number of interests in her youth. She was an active child. Doris took part in swimming and softball. In her spare time she liked helping her mom can fruits and vegetables and help bake breads and cakes.

She graduated from St. Charles Academy High School. She enjoyed some classes more than others, having favorite courses and teachers. Her favorite class in high school was English.

Able to maintain a positive focus on the potential good to be found in others, Doris was always ready with solid advice and guidance to offer her group of friends. She was generally friendly to all who knew her, yet to some she seemed quite independent. For those who really knew Doris, they recognized that she could be full of surprises. Doris enjoyed a small but solid group of true friends. She would willingly support those friends when they needed it. Because of her ability to read people, she had an uncanny knack for knowing when a friend needed help. While growing up, some of her best friends were Amy Peet Reynolds. Later in life, she became friends with Emily Smith and remained friends with Amy Peet Reynolds.

Doris was completely devoted to her family. On November 6, 1955 Doris exchanged wedding vows with John David Fruge' by the Justice of the Peace and later their marriage was blessed at St. Theodore's Catholic Church of Lake Charles, Louisiana.

All who knew her would agree that there was a certain kind of magic in how Doris was able to bond with her children. While she could be a firm disciplinarian, she could also fill the role of being a collaborator with her kids. Doris was always a mentor who helped her family reach its full potential. Doris was blessed with seven children, four sons, Clair James Fruge, Owen David Fruge, John Boyd Fruge and Ivan Jason Fruge; three daughters, Jean Marie Thellen, Ginger Ann LeDoux and Rebecca (Beckie) Sue Clavier. They were also blessed with five grandchildren, Brittani Moreno Provost, James Keith Fruge, Mehgan Olivia Clavier Granger, Michael David Fruge, and Dillon David LeDoux.

She was an innovator who worked well independently, and she enjoyed the task of meeting a constant array of challenges. Her primary occupation was being the best homemaker ever. She was a loving mom to all her seven children. Doris was the link that keep the chain together.


Doris was comfortable showing her creative spirit. She enjoyed her leisure time by taking part in various hobbies. Her favorite pursuits were gardening, baking and sewing clothes for her children. She enjoyed her gardens as she grew older, she was able to dedicate more time to her flower gardens filled with Day Lilies. She was content to enjoy her hobbies alone but was also willing to share her interests with others.

In high school, Doris was a member of the choir. Throughout her later years, Doris was an active member of the Church Choir. She was a member of St. Theodore's Catholic Community for all of her married life.

Favorite vacations included: Disneyland in Anaheim, California; Las Vegas, Nevada; Sea World in San Diego, California and the Grand Canyon in Arizona. Doris was a lover of animals and cherished her pets. Doris's favorites were Katy and Tom, which were her loving cats.

Fruge, Ginger LeDoux and husband, Bryan all of Moss Bluff, Rebecca Clavier and husband, Ron of Sulphur, and Ivan Fruge and wife, Hong of Iowa; five grandchildren, Brittani Provost and husband, Nick of Colorado Springs, CO, James Fruge and wife, Danielle of Moss Bluff, Mehgan Granger and husband, Kevin of Portland, OR, Michael Fruge and wife, Amber of Bryan, TX, and Dillon LeDoux of Moss Bluff; four great-grandchildren, Sage, Millie, Mason, and Rigel; brother, Albert Granger and wife, Jackie of Moss Bluff; sisters, Margaret Sepulvado and husband, Gerald of Converse, LA, Patricia Gallien and husband, Ronnie of Killeen, TX, and Alice Ray and husband, Jerry of Zwolle, LA; and a host of nieces and nephews.

Though she could be a private person at times, Doris was always able and willing to give of herself. She was so in tune with others that she often seemed able to read their minds. Doris carried with her an almost mystical sense of life. She was a person who was highly original in her thinking and used metaphors and symbols to describe many aspects of her life. A poetic, intuitive “teacher”, Doris Granger Fruge shared herself freely and family and friends will remember Doris for the strength of her convictions.
