Doris was a kind and gentle woman. She loved spending time with her family and friends. She always had cookies in the freezer for treats.
Alzheimer's destroyed much of her memory, but she still enjoyed playing 7-up, Bingo, word searches and happy hour entertainment.
Many visitors will remember her sweet smile and her saying "Thank you for visiting, you make me happy." Well, you made us happy Doris, you were our sunshine.
The family would like to thank the staffs of the Meadows nursing homes and Putnam County Hospice.
