I couldn't pronounce Doris, so I always called her maue. And she babysat my sister and I while both of my parents worked. I am heartbroken 💔 when I was a baby in 81. The 1st object I grabbed was her husband, Ernests' nose. Doris was a special woman. She will always be in my heart.

My mother was a true lady, she will be missed terribly by all of us. We know where she is and we are all tremendously happy for her. She is free, whole, and happy! Thank you Heavenly Father for bringing her home and answering our prayers, she never suffered for a moment. I will miss you mom, I loved you dearly and will see you and dad again someday.

We were delighted to have Ms Doris as our neighbor for many years on Chambers Road. She was a beautiful woman, so kind and always neat as a pin. She and her husband Mr Wilson had many good years together there, and we were so glad to know them.

Our prayers are with the family.

Mrs. Wilson,
Thanks for making our childhood fun! Yourself, like my mother, Maria McAlhany, were always so nice to the neighborhood kids.
I know you are proud of all your kids and you are now with Mr. Wilson.
I'm so glad I got to meet you, back in the day, and I hope you have a peaceful journey home.

Godspeed

Rest in Peace
Bre Rogers
