Doris was the rock of the family. She was a caregiver for the whole family, and was always there when someone was in need. Her family lovingly jokes that it was because she loved to be bossy and tell them all what to do. Deep down, she was a kind, soft-hearted, sweet lady. There was also no greater bond than the one between Doris and her sisters. They could usually be found arguing about anything and everything, but there was nothing that could ever come between them. She had a huge heart, and they all knew it. God has now called her home. She has been reunited with her beloved husband Gene, and they are rejoicing together in their Heavenly home.
