Doris Mae Bickel was born on April 16, 1931 in Muleshoe, TX to Bradley Henry Bickel and Hattie Mae (Moore) Bickel. She grew up and attended schools in Muleshoe. In 1951, she married her husband of 66 years, Bill Borum. They spent several years in Lubbock, TX where Doris gave birth to three of her four children: Kay, Karl, and Karen. While in Lubbock, Doris took a job working for Southwestern Bell Telephone Company.

The family later relocated to OKC where she gave birth to her fourth child, Kim. Doris spent years raising her children before accepting a position as an x-ray technologist at Southwest Medical Center. She made many wonderful friends during her 15+ years at SMC before retiring in the mid 1990’s.

Doris was a fun loving woman who enjoyed life. She loved to travel and her favorite trip was a cruise to Alaska where she witnessed a hawk grab a fish from the sky. She also enjoyed playing bingo, bridge, and being a member of the Red Hat Society. Doris loved her family and she never missed a chance to spend time with them. She was happiest when she was surrounded by her kids and grandkids. Doris spent three years living at Southwest Mansions Independent Living and her kind heart, pleasant demeanor and sense of humor made it easy to make friends there. Doris spent the last six months of her life living with her daughter Kay. They made countless memories going to the casino, taking bus trips, and going to St. Louis to visit her son Karl.

Doris Borum was a loving mother, a proud grandmother, a caring sister, and a trusted friend. She touched and encouraged so many people during her time with us and she will truly be missed by all who knew her. She was preceded in death by her loving husband Bill Borum; two children: Karen Ruth Borum and Bradley Kim Borum; parents Bradley and Hattie Mae Bickel; three siblings: Anna Jane, Judy, and Jim Bickel.

She is survived by two children: Kay Parker and Karl Borum and wife Cindy; three grandchildren: Jeremy Wayne Borum, Ruth Ann Loveland, and Asher Lemon Loveland; daughter in law Karen Borum; four siblings: Buck Bickel, Tommy Bickel and Bill Bickel, as well as numerous other beloved family members and friends.

The family would like to thank Elara Home Health and Hospice and their sweet and caring nurses - Caitlin and Valorie, as well as the Medical CMA from Visiting Angels – LaTishia, for their loving kindness and compassion as they cared for our mom.
