I am heartbroken to read Doris' obituary. I lived with Doris my first year out of college while teaching at Rappahannock Elem. School (in 1978-79). My husband proposed to me on the step of the room I rented there at Doris and Woodrow's house! How I would have liked to have seen her again before she passed. I got down there perhaps the year prior, but not since. My father passed at 94 also in November, 2018.
I loved, loved, loved Doris. We had such fun together and never tired of things to share and talk about. She was a wonderful, warm, joyous personality. I became concerned when I didn't get a Christmas card back from her this year.
She will always be a part of my fondest memories.
Doris I love you! Please forgive me for not visiting more.
Your friend, Betsy

How strong of a woman she was, and how much joy, understanding, and comforting Mrs. Doris Coughlin was to my children and I. I have so many memories I'm not able to pick just one. God knows I loved her . For I will miss her terribly. Prayers for family and friends.
