In the few short years that I knew Doris in the Eastern Star I found her to be a warm, caring lady. I will miss her friendly smile and know that she is now at peace and in a better place. My deepest sympathy goes out to Barb, her family and friends over this difficult time. Regards – Lee Donald

I was so sorry to see the sad news about Doris. We Dorises have to stick together so I always made a point of seeking her out. She was so talented with her hands. She made me a beautiful pin when I was installed as Matron of Valley Chapter and I plan to wear it when I come for the Star service even if it is a poinsettia!
