Mrs. Doris R. Liberator Walls was born in Boston, Massachusetts, to Edna Agnes Adams and Frank Albert Liberator.

She graduated from Cambridge High and Latin in 1944 and began her secretary career at John Hancock corporate headquarters in Boston.

She married Donald Walls on June 12, 1948, in Cambridge, Massachusetts. As a Coast Guard wife, moving often was expected. In 1960 came the big move to Port Angeles. She worked for Jack Wright, civil engineer, and then as a secretary in the Elks Club office.

Doris was a member of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, Monday Musicale, Elks Lodge, Seattle Children's Hospital Gladys Billings Moon Guild, Port Angeles Senior Center and the Quilting Ministry at Holy Trinity.

Doris enjoyed cribbage, cards of any kind, knitting, gardening, mahjong, reading, camping and being with friends and family. Everyone will know her as "Honey," a tradition started by her grandkids, who were the joy of her life.

She supported and enjoyed many local musical groups such as the Peninsula Men's Gospel Singers and Port Angeles Light Opera Association.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 48 years, her brother and one great-grandson.

She is survived by two daughters, Joyce (Dan) Wilson of Cathlamet, Washington, and Alyson (Ed) Schilke of Port Angeles; four grandchildren, Todd (Nicole) Wilson, Rondee Wilson, Correne (Steve) Constantino and Jenna (Andy) Watson; and nine great-grandchildren, Casey, Mason, Grant, Hank, Connor, Gavin, Rylee, Jesse and Adelyn.

She was buried between her husband and mother at Mount Angeles Memorial Park in Port Angeles on April 16 after a service at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church.

Memorials may be made to the Holy Trinity Lutheran Church Memorial Fund, 301 East Lopez Avenue, Port Angeles, WA 98362; or Seattle Children's Hospital, 4800 Sand Point Way Northeast, Seattle, WA 98105.
