|EULOGIES & CONDOLENCES|
I’m so very sorry to hear of your loss of Doris. I worked at the
Med center when she was there as a volunteer. She was
always so sweet to step into my office and we chatted about
our families to each other. She made each of my kids a peanut
pillow according to their likes. I loved her from the bottom of
my heart! One of the most genuine kind souls I’ve ever
known. Please know I’m praying for comfort and strength for
you all in the days to come.

|Doris was so warm to me when I started working for the Johnson City School System in 1992 as an RN/School Nurse shared between Liberty Bell and Science Hill. She helped me get started in those early days on a new job, and I have never forgotten that kindness. We became friends, and I am grateful to have known her.|

|Dear David and Kristen,
I'm sorry to hear about your Mother. I wish I
could have been at her service to see you. All of
the family lives out of Johnson City, so I'm not
in town very often. My love and prayers to you and
|One special lady.. she will be so missed at the
Credit Union. I have been blessed to have known
her for many years. God will place special people
on your journey and one of mine was Doris. My

the epitome of a lady. My condolences to the family, especially
Pearl, who was also part of the LBMS “family.”

memories of good times at Liberty Bell. She was a special
lady and I’m sad she is no longer with us. My thoughts are
with her loved ones.|
|Doris and I raised children together! We lived in the same
neighborhood, and our kids graduated together. I have fond
memories of those times! I hadn’t seen Doris in several years,
so I did not know about her ALS. RIP Doris!|

your time of grief. I know she was a wonderful
mother/grandmother/great grandmother and loved each of you
