My Aunt Doris was always an inspiration to me and I would only hope that I can be like her as I age. What a truly beautiful woman both in looks and mind. Her always happy outlook warmed everyone's heart that knew her.. To be with her was like being with my father, her brother. Her smile was his smile. Her sense of humor was his sense of humor. I find comfort now that the two of them are together again along with their parents. All wonderful, loving souls. May God comfort our whole family in our loss of such an amazing person. She will always be in my prayers. Patricia Alfonzo

It was my great pleasure and fortune to meet Doris while coordinating the SMART Reading program at Mid Valley Elementary School. She was a devoted volunteer, reading for the entire 2-hour session to often times squirmy young children. Her beautiful Spanish was a bonus, allowing her to connect with many children more comfortable communicating in Spanish than English.
Sometimes I would give her a ride home and on one such occasion she invited me in for tea. We had a lovely time and I was lucky enough to hear some of her stories. She was a bright light and certainly touched many people’s lives over the years. I’m so sorry for your loss.
