We were so sorry to learn that Doris had passed away. Doris and Dexter were George's landlords when he moved to Belgrade Lakes in the late 1970's and rented one of the Pinehurst apartments from them. They were very good to him. We also knew them through Union Church and shared mutual friends, Charlie and Carol Kelly. Doris and Dexter were wonderful people and very interesting. We continued to keep in touch with Doris at Christmas after she left Belgrade Lakes and always looked forward to hearing from her. We are so sorry for your loss. ~ Becky and George Seel

I am sorry for your loss. I met Doris while she was at Lakewood. My mom and Doris were great friends and shared many meals and good times together there. Doris was always dressed nicely and had a smile on her face when I went to visit my mom. We have both missed her. My condolences from both myself and my mom, Rita. (Brenda Washburn)
