Doris Evelyn Golding Neer, 83, of Conroe, Texas, passed away on April 28, 2013. She was born on October 29, 1929, in Conroe to the late Henry E. Golding and Alma Idell Golding.

She married Don T. Neer November 16, 1947. She is preceded in death by her children's father, Don Thomas Neer and son, Don T. Neer, Jr. (Donnie) Her second husband, Paul Moake of Alto, TX. Parents Henry E. Golding and Alma Golding and her brothers, Robert Golding and Henry Golding.

Doris led an active life and was fiercely independent; she hated the idea of having to live with any of her kids and not being able to take care of herself. After much deliberation, she spent her last year living in Nacogdoches, TX with daughter Robin and was adjusting to her move to Goodlettsville, TN with daughter Carol and her family. Doris was anticipating spring in Tennessee but a sudden heart attack took her from us way too soon. Her mother, Alma Golding loved oil painting and Doris inherited her love of art, taking art classes at Sam Houston State University. She also took classes at Montgomery College and attended Bible Study Fellowship classes for five years at First Baptist Church in Conroe.

Doris loved her family and was always there to comfort and encourage. She loved flowers of every type and would get a cutting from everyone she visited and would make the kids pull over on the side of the road for a clipping. Doris was an avid gardener and had a green thumb; if she stuck it in dirt, it grew! She sewed our clothes, gave haircuts and perms to family and friends and was a second "Mom" to many kids in the neighborhood. She also sold Avon, Sarah Coventry jewelry and Mary Kay. She belonged to two square dance clubs, one being The Country Cousins as well as the quilting club at Mims Baptist church. She attended Mims Baptist Church all her life and was a lifetime member of the Nacogdoches VFW Ladies Auxiliary.

She is survived by her daughter, Sadie Carol Spinks and son-in-law, Bobby Spinks of Goodlettsville, TN; Robin Lisa Neer of Nacogdoches, TX and son Michael Joseph Neer, daughter-in-law, Heather Neer of Bryson, TX. and sister, Alma Jean Lowry of Alto, Tx.

Grandchildren: William Scott and wife Kristi Scott; Mysti Kalappura and husband Anil Kalappura; Christopher Spinks, Zoey Morrow and Shelby Neer. Great-grandchildren: Kayli Scott, Austin Scott, Destiny Spinks, Alyssa Kalappura. As well as numerous nieces, nephews and other extended family and good friends.

Acknowledgments' Mims Baptist Church, Gabe Durand, the late Paul Graham, the McMullen family, Sue and Ron Dunn, the Henderson family, Dr. Glen Berwick and staff and all of our Stidham and Perry Road family and friends.
