Doris was a loving, kind, smart, passionate and involved woman who earned the love and respect of anyone who knew her. She clung to life and living until the very end of her 98 years . I visited with her only two weeks ago and the first and last words out of her mouth were questions about my welfare and the welfare of my wife and children. The day before my visit, she had conducted the Shabbat Services at Woldenberg Village for herself and several fellow residents. . Perhaps her secrets to a long life lay in her determination to fill each day with personal relationships , intense feelings and deep thought . What a woman and what a life!
