Age 88, passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday, October 10, 2012. She was born in Texas on September 26, 1924 to Connor Wills and Adeline Rublee. Her mother went on to give her two sisters, Evelyn and Rosemary.
Doris married William Henderson Hall on August 23, 1947; and they were blessed with nine children, seven girls and two boys. For 47 years, they built and shared their lives through the triumphs and tribulations until Bill passed away in 1994.
In July, 1996, Doris joined the First Southern Baptist Church in North Hollywood, where she was actively involved with Bible Study, the Christmas Baskets and Tape Ministries.
With her profound faith in God and his unwavering love for her and for us, she taught us to look on the bright side of life even through adversity. No matter how she was feeling, if you asked her, she would always say "fine and dandy, peachy keen." And she had an amazing ability to connect with people in a deep and positive way, touching so many lives, particularly in her later years.
Doris truly embraced life to the fullest in everything she did, whether it was holidays, birthdays, Girl Scouts, the PTA, and, of course anything to do with animals; but especially her dogs. She had a wicked sense of humor and a smile larger than life, teaching all of us how to have fun. Doris is now with the Lord and her family; and we can hear her saying "Hot Diggity Dog, this is grand."
Doris is preceded in death by both of her parents; her sister, Evelyn Moralee; her husband, Bill; and her son, William Henderson Hall, Jr. She is survived by her sister, Rosemary Hill; children, Ellen Hall, Sandra Hennessy, Catherine (Walter) Wittel, Robert (Letricia) Hall, Jeanne (Will) Windham, Patricia (Tony) Jamison, Pamela Hall, Judith Hall; and all of her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and friends.
A celebration of Doris' life was held on November 3, 2012 at the First Southern Baptist Church, 10853 Victory Boulevard, North Hollywood, CA, Pastor Charles Cutney presiding.
