My sympathy to Kathy and the rest of the family. Doris was a blessing in my life and in the lives of so many others. She tackled life and work with energy and enthusiasm. I remember her organizing and leading the children’s choir at Baldwin St CRC, the fun way she read stories or dramas, and her bright smile. With you, I thank God for her faith and the 90 years He gave her to serve Him on this earth. Her beautiful soul is resting joyfully with her Savior.
