Doris Sue Sanchez
The Guest Book is expired.
Our beloved mother and wife, Doris Sue Sanchez, passed away peacefully in the early evening on Tuesday, November 16th, 2011. Born Doris Sue Johnson in Waco, Texas, in 1935, she and her family survived the tough Dust Bowl years and migrated to Vallejo, California.
It was in the Bay Area where she met Sam. It was love at first sight and they married while they were still teens at 18 and 16. They recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary, and their beautiful love and commitment for each other has been an inspiration for us all.
Doris is survived by her husband Sam who has loyally devoted the last 7 years to helping her overcome one medical set-back after another. She also leaves her children Jon (Cheryl) Sanchez, Linda (Greg) Kory, and Dennis (Carrie) Sanchez; and nine grandchildren, Erik, Michelle, Bailey, Brooke, Bret, Dennis Jr., Drew, Miles, and Cooper.
Services will be held Wednesday, November 23rd, at 10 AM, at St. Thomas Aquinas Cathedral on 310 West Second Street in downtown Reno.
Burial services will be held at the Mountain View Cemetery at 435 Stoker Avenue in Reno at around 11 AM.
The family invites anyone who wants to share flowers to send them to St. Thomas Aquinas Cathedral.
