    I worked with Doris at my first job with Provident Life & Insurance Company. She was full of life and such a fun person to be around, she helped to make our work day enjoyable. Doris loved her family deeply and was a friend to many. We would host showers & retirement parties for many employees at Provident. She was a strong lady , even though suffered adversities- she was an “Overcomer”..

    I enjoyed talking with her and spending time with her. I have many of her wonderful recipes to this day that I enjoy making and sharing with others!

    Doris and her nephew catered my wedding reception and it was beautifully decorated and the food was over the top!

    I think of her often and will be praying for the Lord to comfort and strengthen her family and loved ones.
    RIP Dear Doris~

    Sending love and prayers to Chuck, Vicki, and the whole family. Nana was a cracker jack – we loved her sense of humor, quiet presence and the amount of love she had for her family especially Wyatt.
