So very lovingly remember Doris. She was a wonderful friend to my Mother, Dorothy Hart. I enjoyed staying in contact with Doris through cards and I am grateful that we continued a friendship. My deepest sympathy to the family.

Thinking of all the family at this time of sorrow. I heard so much about Doris from her daughter Mary Conklin who meant so much to her. Mary and i have been friends for over 21 years

So sorry for your loss. God’s Comfort to you.
My husband enjoyed his Pastoral visits with Doris. She was gracious and kind to us.
