Obituary


Doris M. Armstrong
Aug. 19, 1930 – Feb. 9, 2011

Born August 19, 1930 in Newport, WA, Doris was the eldest of six siblings. Doris was raised in Priest River, Idaho. She and her husband Remo settled in Everett, WA, in the early 50s. They were so captivated with the beauty of Western Washington that they made Everett their permanent home.
Doris married Remo Armstrong on October 23, 1948. Doris met Remo through her close friend, Patsy Stoddard, who would become a lifelong friend and her sister-in-law. Remo had returned home from WWII, they were introduced and the rest is history. It was love at first sight.
Doris was a successful Real Estate Broker and owner of Armstrong Properties. Her business included real estate sales, property management and tax preparation. Doris was a successful businesswoman and managed a healthy balance between her career and family. She displayed the highest integrity and ethics throughout all of her business and personal associations.
After retirement, she volunteered for the Snohomish County Visitors Center - she truly enjoyed her volunteer work. Doris was also a member of the American Business Women's Association (1977 Woman of the Year) and the TOPS organization. Doris and Remo enjoyed their participation with the Whirlybird Square Dancers.
Doris is survived by her three children, Michael Armstrong, Susan Kingsbury and Nancy (Jim) Rogerson; seven grandchildren, Kirk Hartzell, Annie Nelson, Chelsea Armstrong, James and Brisa McDowell, and Lauren and Ian Kingsbury; and seven great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her two brothers, Gene and Don Fiedler; her sister, Carol Chichester; and sister-in-law, Patricia Stoddard.
Preceding Doris in death was her lifelong love and companion, Remo; mother, Florence Fiedler; stepfather, Howard Fiedler; brother, Howard Fiedler Jr.; and sister, Geri Fiedler.
