Cole-Hatchard, Doris (Olori)
The Guest Book is expired.
Doris, lovingly known as "Grandma", was born in Haverstraw, New York on January 27, 1932 to Mary (Hughes) Pearce and Albert Olori. Doris was a retired bookkeeper and administrative assistant, having worked for over 45 years, including at Helen Hayes Hospital and the Stony Point Conference Center, and the last 23 years of her career at Nyack Hospital. On May 9, 1953 Doris married the love of her life, Douglas J. Cole-Hatchard Sr., in Stony Point, New York. She was a member of First United Methodist Church of Stony Point, and the Stony Point Senior Citizen's club. Doris loved her Saturday and Monday night Bingo crew and would always share her winnings with her family. She loved to travel to the Bahamas and Atlantic City with her friends, and never passed up a good casino trip. Doris always believed her greatest achievement in life was her family, and it showed in her love and pride of them. She was the most loyal and thoughtful person we ever knew, and always put the needs of others above her own.
Doris passed in the arms of God with her loving family by her side. She will be missed by all that knew her. Doris was predeceased by her husband Douglas Sr., her wonderful son Douglas Jr., her parents, and her best little puppy Chalupa. Doris is survived by her loving son Stephen Cole-Hatchard Sr. and his wife Ann (Verrier), her grandchildren Douglas and his wife Michelle (Viohl), Andrew, Stephen Jr., Jennifer, Emma, Morgan, and Lauren, and her great grandchildren Olivia and Madison. She loved her entire family dearly. Grandma will be forever missed and always loved. God bless you Grandma.
Family will receive friends on Monday from 2-4 & 7-9 at Higgins Funeral Home in Stony Point, NY. Services will be held on Tuesday at the funeral home at 10am followed by interment at Mt. Repose Cemetery, Haverstraw, NY.
