Sending our heartfelt condolences on behalf of both the Russell and Gennaro familes. We have fond memories of spending time with Doris when we were visiting our Nan and Pop in Florida. Our mom, Sandy Russell, kept in touch with Doris over the years and always spoke so fondly of her. May your sadness be lifted by all of your wonderful memories.

Sincerely,
Rob Russell and Cathy Gennaro

On behalf of the Edmonds family of Fripp Island, SC, our most heartfelt condolences for your loss.

I have many great memories of my Aunt Doris growing up in Roselle, NJ. I always considered her my “cool Aunt” because she knew about things that most Moms and Aunts did not understand. Like fast cars and why it’s OK to eat Charles Chips out of the can while watching TV.

As a child we often had weekend cookouts, shared between three families and rotated between locations. It was a great time and I fondly remember the experience as a wonderful environment in which to grow up

I heard there is a cookout in heaven on Saturday. My Aunt Doris and Uncle Tunk, Peg, Augie, Betty and Jim. Just like old times.
Our thoughts are with you. Love,
Jim, Sue, Jimmy and Chris Edmonds

I have and had the privilege of calling Doris "a friend." I looked forward to seeing her beautiful smile and hearing her warm greeting when walking in the hospital as she sat at the front desk every week. One of my fondest memories was helping Doris and Jean Venne drop off the many brightly wrapped Christmas gifts to the day care Florida Hospital Flagler adopted for the holidays.

Doris was truly a gentle soul and one of the greatest ladies I have met in my lifetime. I will miss her.

May God give her family and friends comfort and peace.
