Doris McElroy Obituary
DORIS MCELROY The family and friends of Doris McElroy are sad to announce her passing on December 22, 2014. Doris was raised in Poplar Bluff, MO, and retained that practical, "down to earth" trait for which Missourians are known and which served her well in her personal and professional life. Doris was educated as a registered nurse and met her husband of 61 years, Ron, in Santa Monica, where she was working. Ron and Doris had a very loving marriage, enjoying their two sons, Steve and John, and their four grandsons. Doris taught for 20 years in the Riverside City College Vocational Nursing Program, retiring in 1985. During their long retirement, Doris and Ron enjoyed numerous RV trips and cruises all over the world. Doris is survived by her husband, sons, grandsons, and many other family members and friends, who will acutely miss her loving presence. Doris leaves a legacy of caring friendship to all who were privileged to know her and also hundreds of principled and skilled vocational nursing graduates. Private family remembrances were held. Donations to honor Doris' memory can be made to the Riverside Community College District Foundation, Vocational Nursing Scholarship Fund.
