I didn't know Doris personally, but my name for her at the Golden Corral in Frederick was the "Nice Dressed Lady." She was always the best dressed person in the restaurant.

To the family of Miss Doris, I met Doris at Bingo and she was the most pleasant lady that I have ever met. Always dressed in matching outfits and I would comment how lovely she was. God called home truly another angel. So with that being said "Fly Doris with your wings of gold" that you truly earned and deserved. GOD BLESS.

To Uncle Bobby and families, May God keep you and comfort you today and in the days, months and years to come.
With Love and sincere Sympathy,

My deepest condolence for your loss. I worked at CVS with Doris for many years. She taught me everything I needed to become a manager. Since she retired, every time I saw a big hat, it was usually her and we would try to catch up for a few minutes., the past few times it was at medical offices. She wil be greatly missed by everyone who knew her. 🙏🏻💕

Doris was one of the kindest Lady we knew. If she liked you,she liked you. She was a very special lady whom we loved dearly. Her love for children was always present. She definitely was one of a kind and we are going to miss her tremendously. Her hugs or kisses I will miss. Rest on my Sister
