Doris loved to cook for her family, providing a constant stream of chocolate chip cookies, pasta, & meatballs. She loved jigsaws and crosswords, and often spent her afternoons gardening. She was an active member of the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses and was very committed to her faith.
Doris’ favorite quote was “whatever” befitting her strong, positive approach to life: taking its many challenges in stride, and its many blessings to heart. She loved being surrounded by her family and found great joy in her grandchildren. She was known around Dalhart as sweet and energetic, with a ready smile for all she met, she never met a stranger and had the gift of gab.
