Doris LaVerne Brackett, 91 of Louisville, passed away at her home April 26, 2021. She was born to the late Claude and Catherine Zettwoch.

Doris was devoted to her church, family and friends. She looked forward to trips with the family and her AARP group. She had a competitive spirit and enjoyed her Saturdays and Sundays playing bingo, and loved a late night card game with friends. She would always remind you that laughter adds years to your life, so she always had jokes lined up to share at her AARP meetings. She always looked at the bright side of every situation and would stay positive and remain optimistic. Doris was a long time member of the Holy Family Parish and a graduate of Mercy High School. She retired from Peytons, Inc.

She is preceded in death by her husband Joseph Brackett. She is survived by her loving family: Terry Brackett (Sherry), Mike Brackett (Georgette), Sherry Burks (Fred), Patty Pitcher (Mark). Grandchildren Fred Burks III (Lori), Wendy Bancroft (Ryan), Michael Brackett (Nadya), Chris Brackett (Jenny), Kate Brackett (Zach Thieneman), Joe Brackett (Melissa), Tina Brackett and Chris Brackett. Great-grandchildren Austin, Hunter and Sydney Burks, Logan and Noah Bancroft, Joey and Natalie Brackett.
