Doris hired me for my very first professional job (at Suncoast Girl Scout Council)and taught me so much. She will always have a special place in my heart. My thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathy to Jeff and the entire family.

I will never forget our time together as (every day) lunch buddies for years during our time together at Girl Scout. We shared many a family story and continued to touch base and catch up at your favorite place, the Colonnade. I have 80 prayer warriors at my bible study class that will be praying for you and your family. Blessings Jane Roberts

Your involvement with Girl Scouting always touched me as both my daughters are Gold Award recipients. Your genteel nature was something I always looked forward to your genteel nature. Rest in Peace.
