Obituary of Doris Irene Dromgoole
Doris Dromgoole passed away peacefully at her home in Spring, TX on September 21, 2022. Doris was born in Heidenheimer, TX on October 18th, 1934 to Wilson and Olive Tippit. Doris was the youngest of her four siblings, Johnnie, Wilson, Ervin, and Emma. Doris is survived by her four children: Jeannie Stallings and husband Charles, Debbie Bachmeyer and husband Craig, Sheila Dromgoole, and Russell Dromgoole Jr. She has six grandchildren: Kimberly Pavey, Dawn Larson, Crystal Cutler, Tammy Welty, John Girton, and Drew Girton. She has eight great grandchildren, Kristina, Abby, Adriana, Alyssa, Alayna, Jordan, Aliah, and Ariel. She had five great-great grandchildren, Owen, Payton, Olivia, Bryson, and Camden. Many loveable cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends. Doris is preceded in rest by her husband, Russell Dromgoole Sr., granddaughter, Kimberly Pavey, her parents, and siblings. Doris and Russell were married 49 years and together had a wonderful family. Doris was a bank teller for 52 years. She was a devout Christian while being a member of both Central Church of Christ and 249 Church of Christ. Her favorite thing to do was to go to the Senior Center and play Bingo with her friends. At home, her favorite thing to do was to play Skip-Bo with EVERYONE! She loved doing silly skits for everyone's birthday and embarrassing them by teaching them the difference between the kisses when you became a teenager, a memory that they will never forget. She was the Matriarch of the family and created traditions that will live in us forever. Her favorite tradition at Christmas was to initiate new family members by making them recite "The Night Before Christmas" with a sucker in their mouth in front of the whole family. She loved telling stories to the kids. Her Grandkids and Great-Grandkids would say she was the best storyteller and encouraged her to write Children's books.
