Doris Ruprecht Carlisle of Cumming passed away Oct. 11, 2014, at the age of 80 after her battle with cancer. She was preceded in death by her husband, Richard (Dick) Carlisle; and son, Chris Carlisle.
Survivors include her daughter and son-in-law, Debbie and Bill Parks; son and daughter-in-law, Bruce and Marybel Carlisle; daughter-in-law, Jeannelle Carlisle; sister, Bette Fitting; and five grandchildren.
Mrs. Carlisle was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. Doris and Dick were happily married for 56 years. She loved spending time with friends, her children and grandchildren, playing bridge, painting, camping, and playing the piano.
Doris was an active member of her church and faithfully served as a Stephen Minister for 16 years. She believed in sharing her faith through her actions more than her words. Throughout her life she was focused on humbly witnessing her love for Christ and her desire was for others to experience that same love. She had a gift of seeing God's beauty in His smallest creations and in every person she encountered.
There will be an opportunity to visit with the family Tuesday, Oct. 28, from 2-3 p.m. at Johns Creek Presbyterian Church, 10950 Bell Road, Johns Creek, GA 30097. Visitation will be followed by a memorial service at 3 p.m., then a reception in the fellowship hall.
In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations in the name of Doris Carlisle to Johns Creek Presbyterian Church/Stephen Ministry, 10950 Bell Road, Johns Creek, GA 30097.
