Lederer, Doris - Asheville  
Doris Lane Lederer Asheville - Doris Lederer, 97, passed away June 27th in her home at Givens Estates with two of her daughters by her side. The daughter of Frank and Alma Lane, Doris was born on November 28, 1917 and raised on a farm in Bellefontaine, Ohio. She attended Bowling Green University where she majored in education and was elected to both the honorary education and debate fraternities. She taught school in Ohio for two years before marrying her soulmate, Edwin Lederer, in 1941. They lived in Schenectady, New York during the war years and moved to Syracuse, New York in 1946 where they lived for 35 years. During this time she received an associate degree in Social Work from Syracuse University. She was a skilled graphoanalyst and enjoyed using those skills at many, varied fund-raising events over the years. No matter the person, she always found positive things to say from analyzing his or her handwriting! For 25 years in Syracuse, she was extremely involved with international graduate students and their families who truly became part of her family. In 1981, Doris and Ed moved to Asheville, NC where they lived in Lakeview Park. They were charter members of the College for Seniors (now OLLI) and active volunteers for a wide variety of organizations. After her husband's death in 2006, Doris moved to Givens Estates. At Givens, Doris was a member of the spelling bee team which won the Buncombe County spelling contest. She was extremely active physically -- working out every morning, swimming twice a week and line dancing every Saturday morning. In 2012-2013, she swam in the Senior Games of Buncombe County, the state Senior Games in Raleigh and the national Senior Games in Cleveland, Ohio in the 95-99 year old category. Doris's life was characterized by an openness of heart and generosity of spirit for people from all walks of life. It is from this that she developed a worldwide network of friends and family, fed by her lifelong involvement with the international community through volunteering and hosting. She inspired others by her positive attitude, curiosity and open mind. She and Ed were true humanitarians, touching lives in enduring ways. Her memorial service will be held at the Chapel at Givens Estates on Friday, July 10th at 2 p.m. There will be a small reception following.
