Dear family, I have such fond memories from my early childhood and in my adult years of Doris and her ever-smiling and kind face. She was my second cousin and also a dear friend to my sister, Shirley (Nottmeier) Feldmeier. She was in Shirleys wedding, and I believe Willard was too. Prayers for comfort and peace to all of you as you recall the treasured memories of your loved one. Caring thoughts and prayers, Sharon (Nottmeier) Arnold (Spokane, WA)
