Doris Margaret Elzey Obituary
Elzey, Doris Margaret, 92, passed away in her sleep on March 22, 2014 in Tustin, California. She was born on August 15, 1921 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Harry and Margaret Sauter. She graduated from Olney High School in 1939 and soon after joined the Navy as a Wave with a burning desire to see the world. She made it as far as Hawaii and later Pensacola where she met and in 1948 married a handsome young Marine pilot named Major William Paul Elzey Jr. They had 3 daughters, Diana, Suzanna and Darnell. As they traveled around the country with the Marine Corps, Doris was very active in Girl Scouts and Navy Relief. In the early 1960's she discovered golf and was an active golfer with Publinks serving in most of the major positions on the board including president until she was sidelined by a stroke in 2008. She was a gracious and grateful spirit and loved to party and laugh. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

Doris is survived by her 3 daughters, Diana Pearson (Steve), Suzanna Graciano (Tom) and Darnell Elzey Wage. She is also survived by 6 grandchildren; Ryan, Chris and Catherine Pearson, Alicia Ferreira (Nick) and Jenna Bravo (Jesse) and Bryan Wage and one great granddaughter, Copper Marie Ferreira.
