Doris C. Squires, 83, of Hanover County and a lifelong Virginia resident.
Heaven took back its best Angel on July 28, 2020. She follows her husband, Clay; mother and father, Ida and Eugene “Kingfish” Conn; and brother, Eugene Conn.

Doris was a retired Rural Mail Carrier for many years and was known as the “Candy Lady” to many of the children on her route. A devoted Christian who did for others as much as she was able; no one that knew her ever went hungry.

Doris (Nana) was always a sweet lady and a wonderful Grandmother to all her grandchildren. All the years I knew her she was always the same.
You all are in my prayers,

I was a sub & I trained Doris the first day she started as a Rural Carrier at Ruther Glen Post Office. There had been a deep snow and we delivered 3 days mail in her truck. I have never (before or since) laughed as much as I did that day. Sorry for your loss. I am sure she will be remembered by many.

Doris was one of the most interesting people to talk to. Her knowledge of the communities she so honorably served as rural mail carrier was amazing. I’m so happy she is reunited with her family in heaven. She will be remembered. Mary Golden
