Doris W. Stone went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, June 16, 2020 after a very brief illness.

Doris was born to Rastus J. and Margaret Newsom Wood on June 28, 1926 and was a lifelong resident of Winston-Salem and member of Home Moravian Church. Doris lived a full life enjoying country music and dancing. Doris loved her family and loved traveling with her late husband, Phonso Stone, to Lions Club conventions and TPA. Her family will miss her dearly, especially her green beans with fatback. She was affectionately known as Grandma Doris by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Doris was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Phonso and all five of her siblings. She is survived by her daughters, Judy Wall Brewer (Rick) and Robin Stone Noonkester (Danny) both of Greensboro; her four grandsons, Richard Jr., Robert Dare, Joseph Bryan and Anthony William; six great-granddaughters, Madison, MacKenzie, Kendall, Colby, Ava and Katelyn. She also leaves behind many special nieces, nephews and extended family.

A celebration of Doris’s life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Alzheimer’s Association, 225 N. Michigan Ave., Fl. 17, Chicago, IL 60601 or to Home Moravian Church, 529 S. Church St., Winston-Salem, NC 27101.

Doris was such a warm and inviting person, never met a stranger and took great pleasure in being with her family. I will forever see her smiling and dancing. My deepest condolences to her entire family and all of her many friends. She will be missed.

We are so sorry for your loss, and our sincere sympathy to the entire family. We have many memories of Doris. She was such an outgoing person and loved to talk. We just had dinner with Doris a few weeks ago at Captain Toms's in Kernersville, NC . I know Doris will be missed by her family. The many memories the family have of Doris will help them get by day by day. God Bless each of you. Wilbert and Phyllis Royal
