Doris was a sweet lady and a good friend. How I miss her! I was a school mate of her son, Terry, and much later worked for Doris at the HPM Federal Credit Union. There was NO generation gap with her between our ages. I loved my dear friend and look forward to seeing her again soon!

Doris had a truly wonderful personality and the smile that always let it show! I so appreciated her open, accepting nature as we are "extended" family. She and Roger had some great kids too! I love all three of you and wish you well in this mixture of sorrow and celebration. Ken Hoffman

We will miss Doris very much. We appreciated her outgoing and fun personality. She talked about Glenn a lot when he was a small boy and she had very fond memories of him. Our condolences to the family.
