A loving, caring and devoted mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Doris’ family was most important to her. She was her grandchildren’s biggest cheerleader. She’ll be remembered for her hardworking nature, willingness to put others ahead of herself and her enthusiasm for bingo and good slot machines.

Doris was known by many as the “15th Street Mom”, for her her great cooking and willingness to make sure that countless friends of her children were fed, even if it meant she went to bed hungry.

A private family gathering celebrating Doris’ life will be at a later date. Cremation has been accorded by Wickham Family Funeral Home in Fredonia.

A special heartfelt thank you to her son, Dar, who gave her the most exceptional care and gave us all several additional years to cherish.
