We are sorry to learn about Doris. What a sweet, kind, intelligent, and Godly lady. My wife Dollie and Doris used to go out and to services some Saturday afternoons. They really enjoyed each other’s company and their friendship with the other Franciscans. God bless.

Spent many hours with Doris, with our fraternity. Doris was our champion rosary maker! She made hundreds of them. She will be missed. Rest In Peace

Doris was a beloved member of our Cursillo group
And met at her home many times. We had lunch just weeks ago. We shared the love of 12:15 Sunday mass before covid. She was a very loving person and will be missed. Barbara Austin-Marcotte.
