Aunt Doris will always hold a special place in my heart and memories! She was such a fun aunt and always so happy and kind. My cousins and I could almost always talk her into letting us have a sleepover. She loved God and was a genuinely good person! I know Uncle Leroy and my dad welcomed her to heaven with open arms 💕

My Mother is the best example of perfection.She is caring,dedicated,loving,smart,hard working,faithful,just to name a few words of what this woman truly was.Although she was a serious person,she had to be.She managed 5 girls,a husband,not to mention keeping the house clean,3 meals a day,and constant laundry(all those CLOTH diapers).She had a devine musical talent playing the piano & organ at home and church.She is most certainly 100% a true child of God.A big part of her heart went to animals in need and children.She loves her grandchildren soooo much.Her last ''child'' is Abby,her bearded daschund whom now lives with John and I and we are very fortunate to have that piece of her with us.I will always miss her with desparation,but she has gone home to be with her beloved husband and all her family and friends that went to heaven before her.I'm happy she didn't suffer for too long and I am one of the luckiest people to have been blessed to have this miracle of a mom.She is undeniably a very rare gem.The kingdom of heaven is truly enriched deeply,now that Doris and Leroy have returned home.I love you Mother,your baby girl Lori Ellen. P.S.S. Your son-in-law John is missing his little woman so he will just have to spoil Abby xoxo

Aunt Doris was one of my most favorite people in my life. Growing up , at times, she was like my second mom. I have so many wonderful memories of her. She will be sorely missed and I look forward to reuniting in Heaven with her again someday. Meanwhile mom ( her sister) and I will continue to keep her memory alive by sharing countless memories of their childhood and their get togethers as adults. Until we meet again ❤

Mom, You taught me that it was okay to have a Goodwill Christmas when times were hard. You showed me it was okay to accept charity from the church when dad got laid off. I saw how hard you tried to make extra money to feed 5 kids by teaching piano when you could. You always tried to provide mini vacations to locations I remember to this day. Thank you for teaching me never to give up especially through these Covid-19 times. I was in the hospital when you passed and that night I finally turned the corner. I know you were with me. I will always love you for what you did for me and our family. May God keep you in his embrace until we meet again.

Doris Williams was a great piano teacher and friend. She taught me piano lessons which I just loved. I've known her over 20 years and loved her like a mother. She did a lot of crocheting and made a lot of beautiful things. She played the piano at Murdock Christian Church and served the Lord in many other ways. My heart goes out to her 5 daughters and other family members . I cried myself when she passed away. She lived a good long life until God took her home where she is with loved ones and waiting for her family here to join her someday. Doris we all love you and you will be dearly missed.
