Doris Marie Vawter

1925 - 2016 Obituary Condolences
Vawter, Doris Marie
Doris Vawter, a Mom in the truest sense, passed on June 6, 2016 in Phoenix. She was born in Orion, Illinois on July 19, 1925 and spent her formative years living on the farms of Illinois and Iowa. Doris moved, with her family, to Phoenix in 1945. She was married to, and is survived by, her husband for over sixty-four years, Charles. To her family, she was maid, chauffeur, laundrywoman, gardener, painter, motivator, cleaner, master seamstress, homework helper and chef - short order or banquet. To the neighborhood and friends of her children, she was the cool Mom. She is survived by her children Linda, Chuck, Susan and Mary (John) Curfman. All of her children earned college degrees thanks to her insistence on attendance and perseverance. She will also be dearly missed by her grandchildren Nicole, John and Chase. Services will be held on Wednesday, June 15 at Greenwood Memory Lawn, Serenity Chapel, located at 719 North 27th Avenue. Viewing begins at 9:00 AM with a memorial service to follow at 10:00 AM.
