The Guest Book is expired.

Doris Jean Solomon, 64, of Dover, Delaware, died Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2016, at the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. She was born in Philipsburg, Pa., on April 21, 1951, and grew up in Houtzdale, Pa. Doris was the daughter of the late Boyd and Delores (Srock) Decker.

Doris graduated from Moshannon Valley High School in 1969. She attended Career Academy in Washington, D.C. and worked as a dental assistant in numerous dental offices for over thirty years. On June 8, 1974, she was united in marriage to Marvin E. Solomon and resided in Clearfield, Pa.

Doris retired in 2004 and relocated to Dover. Collecting recipes and spending lots of time in the kitchen meant that grandkids and friends alike would soon be enjoying her treats. Time spent with family or friends was always so very special to Doris. She soon became active in charitable endeavors. Becoming an officer in the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks allowed Doris to become involved with her community and touch the hearts of so many people. She had a passion for bettering the lives of veterans, youth, and those in need and for sharing her friendship and enthusiasm for life in connecting and building loving relationships.

Doris is survived by her husband of 41 years, Marv; two children, Matthew and his wife Jody of Fremont, Ohio, and Meagan Solomon Rodgers of Holmdel, N.J.; and five grandchildren: Bo and Max Solomon; Mara and Myles Rodgers, and Ricki Baker. She is also survived by her sister, Cheryl Zelenky and her husband Dennis of Washington, N.C.; numerous in-laws, nieces, nephews, and cousins; as well as, aunts, uncles, and close friends.

Doris felt privileged and blessed to have her family and her friends in constant contact with her during her recent illness. It was her faith in God that was her rock, her hope and strength during these trying months. This strong faith leaves us with hope of being with her again.
