Doris J Mahoney
November 17, 2020
Watching the funeral while sitting at my desk, I was able to reminisce about the MANY happy times we spent with Aunt Doris, Uncle Bob, Mary, Bobby, Michael and Kathy on game farm road....(had to go see the wolf every time we visited), riding Mary's horse, Poncho, bringing Sadie back and forth to visit, breaking ground at the new house on Cannonball trail; having that big basement for "the kids;" hiking down the creek behind the house. She was a wonderful hostess and made you feel at home....like she was waiting for YOU to arrive. I loved going to The Mahoney's "in the country." That evil little laugh. Dressed to the 9's (like Betty)..even when she was wearing jeans, she looked like a million bucks. I wished we could have spent more time together these last few years. This pic was from the last time Doris and my mom were together at Kathy's several years ago. "Couple Club" reunited.

Mrs. Mahoney was always so put together and was a classic old school mom. She always made me feel welcome... The sweetest mom!

Doris had a special way of being so much more than a grandmother; she was also a friend. She treated us like family from day one, always telling my sisters and I how special we were. She gave the BEST advice when I had questions about my son and had a way of making everything seem better. She had a knack for making everyone feel comfortable, important, and valued. This photo is from my wedding, where Doris’s amazing style was on full display! She was an important part of the family and will be so dearly missed.
