Memories & Candles
Dear Aunt Doris,
You have always shown such kindness to me and my siblings. Being the older sister to my father - you must have done something right to set him on the straight & narrow path as he was a good and loving dad to us!! As you have been to all who know and love you. I will miss you so much, but I am so blessed to have the memories of knowing you - these memories bring such

My love and prayers to all the family. I loved Doris and will always remember the fun conversations with her and how I could make her laught.
Those gorgeous eyes just twinkled full of mischief and she knew how much I loved her silver bracelets.
May she be home with Frank Sr. and smiling down at us sending us love and blessings.
Miss you Doris.

Doris and Frank were great lineage buddies. We were members of several genealogy organizations together. Whenever I think of Doris I picture her smiling. What a sweet lady. Our condolences to the family.

Oh, Aunt Doris, how I love you! You were always such a warm, loving Aunt - even with the distance between us - so beautiful and loving. After Grandma passed away, you became the family "matriarch", if you will, loving so many in such a large family. How you loved your brothers and sisters! I will treasure my memories of you, the time you spent writing me letters and asking after my own family. You were always so genuinely kind

Ms. Doris was a beautiful person inside and out. She was full of peace and love, patience, thoughtfulness, and God. The stresses of the day seemed to disappear when I was in her presence. I loved taking care of her.
Oh, how God blessed me so with Ms. Doris, her sister Nancy, and my meeting her wonderful family.
I loved her like I would my own grandmother. She will be missed, but I know she wouldn't want me to cry

Aunt Doris was such a kind and compassionate force in the family. Her radiant smile could light up a room. I remember finding a picture of her when she was very young and thinking she was as beautiful then as she was at any time I saw her--she truly blessed all who knew her.
I hope she finds peace in the loving arms of Jesus, with Uncle Frank, my dad and the other brothers.
Heaven will now be richer for her presence.

How fortunate we are to have known Doris for a very short portion of her exciting and joyous life. She was an amazling lady with verve and zest for living even to her last days which were fraught with health difficulties. We mourn her passing with her family. Sincere sympathy, Holly and Jonathan Decherd

You were so much more than my little Big Sister - - you were my best friend and confidant with whom I shared my secrets. You were with me during the highs and "thankfully" the few lows of my life. No matter what, I felt that I always had your moral support and that you accepted me - warts and all!
I always wished that I had your serene disposition - and, your physical beauty would have been nice too,

Dear Frank and family,
I will always remember your sweet mother and her beautiful voice and how kind and beautiful she was to me. How wonderful you had her as long as you did in your life to be there through all the ups and downs.
I would have loved it if my mother Meredythe Durckel could have lived as long as yours. And to think she has other siblings that still survive her.
She was so
