Dear wife, mother, sister, grandmother, and friend, Doris Vogt, left us peacefully after a long and rich life on February 9, 2021 in the quiet of her Sequim home of almost 20 years. Doris was a woman of great intellect, strength, and grace. She was a bold adventurer alongside her beloved husband of 66 years, Jack, as they travelled across country from Ohio to a new home in Utah where they explored the wilds of the west on weekend camping trips every summer. It was there that Doris introduced her three daughters to the wonders of nature and gifted them with a love of wide-open spaces and a curiosity for the world.
Wherever she went, Doris created beautiful gardens and filled her kitchen with wonderful food. She took exquisite care of the animals she welcomed into her home. She loved wild birds and knew the name of every growing thing in the beautiful landscapes she and Jack cultivated.
Doris had a keen mind and kind heart. Her quiet strength was a thing of wonder. Her energy was simply amazing. Her kindness extended to those she generously supported through many good organizations. She was beautiful.
Doris adored and was adored by her husband Jack; children Ellen, Lorna, and Carol; son-in-law, Mike; seven grandchildren and those they love: Sara, Allison and Jeff, Matt, Hanna, Patrick and Samantha, Tim and Kelly, and Alex and Alex; her dear brother Alan Peterson and sister-in-law Audrey and their children, Cindy, Cheryl, Jeff, and Ken; and brother- and sister-in-law Bill and Nobuko Vogt and niece Kathy Vogt. Our Doris made this world a better place and we will sorely miss her. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in her name to WAG, Welfare Animals Guild in Sequim, WA.
