Doris was a delightful person, very kind and gererous. Im so sorry for your loss

Doris was a truly beautiful person. I worked with her for many years at the Hab Center. She was kind, smart and always the best resource for anything in the personnel department. She spoke often of her family and I could tell how proud she was of them. I know she will be missed by many.

Rest in GOD's hands Dory. May you always walk in the arms of the angels. Thank you so very much for all of the unforgettable memories of our youth. GOD Bless!
