Doris Jeanne was a smart kind loving talented woman of God whom I loved very much! She was a wonderful choir director and friend. She and her husband Willard will forever be in my heart. During many practices she would correct me in love. Especially certain words. Nevertheless I sang to the Lord with all my heart, in love and praise. I love you both!

Doris Jean had an awesome voice and when she sang even the birds hushed their singing. She was my true friend and we shared many memories. I loved her dearly and I'll miss her so much. I'm sure she is happy now in heaven with her husband. God be with all of her family. I send my love and sincere sympathy.

Doris Jean was my classmate at Union High School. She always had a sweet smile and good sense of humor. She was blessed with a lot of talent, but during school, we were mostly aware of her musical talent, inherited from the Martin family relatives. Years later we worked together at Union Technical Education Center in Monroe. That's when I first became aware of her artist and writing abilities. She was very good. When I would visit her, she took great delight in showing me the piano that her dad bought her and her beautiful paintings, and sometimes shared articles that she had written. I enjoyed her friendship and will miss our visits.
