for the Broomfield Police Department for many years. She was a devoted member, from its inception, of the Holy Comforter Episcopal Church in Broomfield during her life, as well as a devoted bridge player. Doris and Ed lived in Broomfield since 1958, and was an avid participant in the Red Hat Society. After retirement, they became snowbirds, travelling between Broomfield and Mesa, Arizona. Doris enjoyed socializing with her many friends in both locales. Her friends have said she was warm and inviting; always open to host the next party or social gathering. She was a master gardener, growing huge tomatoes and wonderful zucchinis. She prided herself on her cooking. Her family always loved her corn bread, gravy, and chocolate cake! Survivors include her brother, Raymond Cable, and her children: Michael Kirsch of Casa Grande, AZ, Keith Kirsch (Janet) of Lakeport, CA, and Cheryl Nelson (Tom) of Broomfield, CO. Surviving grandchildren include Eric and Andreas Kirsch (Sweden), Alan and Emily Kirsch (California), and Michael and Kellie Nelson (Colorado).
