Doris enjoyed family and friends, flower gardening, crossword puzzles and most of us have her handmade granny-square afghans or crossstitched baby quilts that we treasure.
The family would like to thank her numerous home health care aides and Lifetime Care Hospice, who all assisted us in keeping her safe and happy in her own home; and especially to Kelly, her granddaughter, who was instrumental in getting these services in place.
