Doris Jeanne Tapp

October 14, 1925July 10, 2020

Doris Jeanne Gansle Tapp passed away on July 10, 2020. She was born on October 14, 1925 in Eugene, Oregon. She went to Halsey High School and married Stanley Earl Tapp on September 5, 1942. They were married for over 76 ½ years when Stanley passed away last June.

Stanley and Doris had 3 children which they raised in Halsey, Oregon. She worked picking berries, beans and walnuts. She would pick walnuts to buy a new pair of dress shoes every year. Oh, how she loved her shoes. She eventually went to work in the seed industry where she retired from Simplot as a book keeper. Stanley and her loved to travel but most of all they loved spending time at the Oregon Coast between Depoe Bay and Lincoln City where they spent a lot of time camping.

Doris loved going shopping and Stanley was always with her and held her purse while she shopped. We called her the ultra suede grandma.

She lived her life in Halsey until her and Stanley moved to Vancouver in 2017 to be closer to family as they grew older.

Doris was a Rebekah member for over 50 years. She and Stanley were part of the Methodist Church in Halsey where she spent many years as the treasurer.

She is joining her husband, mother, father, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law and many others in heaven. She is survived by her 3 children Gale Tapp and wife Alberta, Lynette Scales, Suzette Beaudin and husband Joe. Plus grandchildren Shane Scales, Yvette Wade and husband Kevin, Suzette Buffington and husband David, Ryan Tapp and wife Kylyn, Nicole Tapp, Tim Beaudin and wife Jen, Kim Larsen and husband Andy and 11 great grandchildren.

We will be having a private graveside service for family due to Covid 19 but hope to have a celebration of life later.
