My sympathies to the family . Doris was in my mother (Belle Nadeau’s) Tuesday night card club. I remember the “ladies” coming over and having such a great time, playing cards, Pokeno and of course having drinks and snacks. I always thought Doris was such a nice lady. RIP Doris ❤️

I would like to extend my sympathy to Jan Blaha and the entire family of Doris Pelletier. Most of all I would like to say the Lord works in many ways . I was blessed and honored to sit next to her daughter ,Jan Blaha, on the plane from Dallas to Boston 10/29/2018. I never had the pleasure of meeting Doris personally but in conversation with Jan felt she must have been a wonderful person .The most important thing on my mind clearly was to engage in conversation with Jan and in some way make her journey somewhat comfortable. ...God Bless You Mrs Pelletier for your journey is complete......To Jan ; Not all angels have wings some take planes ....Blessed indeed ......
