I worked with Doris in Worthington Ohio. I am Loretta Hayden and she and Alma were like my mothers. I was looking in my phone book just today 11-3-2012 and typed her name and town and came up with this. I am so saddened to hear that she has passed away. I have many fun memories of her talking about Sarah, Paul, the Judge and Agnes. She always loved cheese and kept some in her desk.

Paul,Diana,Lynda, and Sarah,
I know this is a difficult time, it's never easy to give up our loved ones.
Doris is now with Teresa, no more pain.
We met the family many years ago, and have enjoyed Vacations, shopping, and just visiting...
