Doris M. Suhr, 92, passed away Saturday, July 14, 2012, at Harmony House in Manitowoc. The loving arms of her daughters & granddaughter surrounded her.
Doris Mae Gauthier was born on November 30, 1919, in Fairport, MI, to John & Martha (Harrington) Gauthier. She moved to Two Rivers, WI in 1936, where she met and married Clem Suhr on November 16, 1940. She was a graduate of the Milwaukee School of Beauty Culture, and was also employed at Paragon Electric and Schwartz Mfg. Co.
An accomplished golfer, Doris enjoyed membership at Fairview Golf Course for over 40 years, and was also a longtime member of the Two Rivers Women's Dartball League. She enjoyed dancing, music, walking, birdwatching, crossword puzzles, watching the Green Bay Packers and traveling with friends and family. A founding member of both Holy Redeemer & St. Peter the Fisherman Parishes in Two Rivers, her faith and family were the most important things in her life. First and foremost, she was a loving wife and mother, and always a lady. Her kindness and wonderful sense of humor enriched all who knew her. Heaven is blessed, and the world is depleted by her passing.
Doris is survived by her daughters, Judi Schroeder of Green Bay, and Cyndi (Bryan) Skidmore of Two Rivers; daughter-in-law, Joan Suhr of Truman, MN; grandchildren, Kurt, Karl, Kristine, and Karen Schroeder, Jennifer (Dan) Brookens, Sara (Kent) Keil, and Michael Skidmore; great-grandchildren, Korina, Kolton, and Karmen Schroeder, Kaycie and Brendan Brookens, and the much anticipated arrival of Sara & Kent Keil's baby daughter in August. She was preceded in death by her husband, Clem Suhr in 1978, her son, Marvin in 2007, her parents, and eight brothers and sisters.
Funeral Services will be held at 10:30 a.m., Thursday, July 19, 2012, at St. Peter the Fisherman Catholic Church, Two Rivers. Officiating at the Mass of Christian Burial will be Rev. Tom Reynebeau with burial to follow at Calvary Cemetery, Two Rivers.
