    Doris was a resident of the same retirement community my mom -Betty lives in.
    We will remember Doris for her kindness, positive attitude and her strong faith.
    I always enjoyed seeing her on the weekends sitting by the elevator all dressed up waiting for her son to pick her up for church Something she really looked foward to.
    Our thoughts and prayers our with her family.
    She will be surely missed.
    Sincerly,
    Laurie Kidd and Betty Smith

    Doris has been a very special person in our lives. When her husband was alive,the four of us went to a lot of gospel concerts together. Doris always done the driving because Tom and I don,t drive at night. We went to Oregon on a little vacation trip and had a very nice time. Sunday after church we went out to eat and sat and talked.Doris continued going with us after church, unless one of us had something else planned.
    Doris told me one time that she didn’t have a sister so I was her sister.We loved each other and she will be greatly missed.

    Doris and I lived in the Briarwood neighborhood. Our children went to the same Issaquah schools. My daughter and Lee Kirk were in the same grade.
    When we moved into the neighborhood we were all young with children. Many of the Mothers worked.

    After our children graduated and moved on, many of us started to retire from our jobs.

    Seven of the neighborhood ladies, including Doris, started to meet at a resturant at the time of each ones birthday to treat the “Birthday Lady” to a free lunch and deasert. We went to some awesome resturants. I always looked foreward to seeing Doris. She was outgoing, witty, charming; a very nice lady. I knew her birthday was in Oct. and was waiting for the call to celebrate her day but she chose to celebrate it with Jesus. God Bess you, Doris. May you rest in peace. You will be missed.
