Doris Murdock Thacker Obituary

Doris Murdock Thacker, age 95, passed away on Saturday, January 27, 2018, of complications incident to age, in Vancouver, Washington. Doris was one of seven children born to Mabel Bell Murdock and Earl Sharp Murdock, on December 5, 1922, in Heber City, Utah.

She grew up and attended school in Heber City, and was a proud graduate of Wasatch High School. Doris had fond memories of her high school years, her experiences with high school band and of her many lifelong friends.

Doris married Roger Dale Thacker on November 18, 1942, in the Salt Lake City Temple. Doris and Dale raised five children together, living most of their lives in Yuba City, California.

She was a lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, where she served valiantly in many callings. One of the highlights of her church service was the opportunity she and Dale had to serve for one year as missionaries in Australia. She developed and maintained many tender relationships consequent of this missionary service.

In recent years Doris has resided in Vancouver, Washington, the last four years in the care of Gabriela Filip, a true angel.

Doris will be remembered best for her resilient spirit and her keen wit. In her late years she adopted and lived the mantra "You get what you get and you don't throw a fit."

Doris is survived by 4 children, Roger; Kathleen Agate (Skip); Mark (Dorothy); and JoAnn Damiani (Jim); 17 grandchildren and 32 great-grandchildren and several extended family members.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Dale; son, Michael Dale; and grandson, Michael Douglas Thacker.

Funeral services will be held Wednesday, February 7, 2018, at 11:00am at the LDS Church at 1470 Butte House Rd., Yuba City, California. Interment will follow immediately at the Sutter Cemetery. Arrangements are under the direction of the Ullrey Memorial Funeral Home.
