I had the pleasure of working with Miss. Doris for several years at Synergy HomeCare. Doris never missed a beat. Very kind, compassionate, loving and caring! I remember telling her if I ever need a caretaker, she would be the first person on the list to call. Doris was an amazing person, inside and out!

Doris was taking care of my mom when she got sick. We didn’t know the cause but assumed she’d be back eventually. I’m so sorry for your loss. She was a wonderful caregiver.

Our small JUST OLDER YOUTH-Ladies Sunday School group at Nall Ave. Baptist Church felt so blessed when Doris joined us in Bible Study and loving care of each other. She will be sorely missed! May she enjoy her R & R as she lives pain-free in her Heavenly Home. See you, later, Dear Sweet Doris.

Sending healing prayers and comforting hugs, with my deepest sympathy as I remember Doris Douglass

From Jan Mason...

Doris was a big part of my life when our children were young. There was a group of us that did so much together and so much for each other. We made something wonderful out of a life that could have been hard but friendship and laughter and support made it wonderful. I never knew anyone who could be as genuinely sweet and kind as Doris.

From Diane Chrislip...

Doris was truly the kindest, most selfless person I have ever known. Even though she never had a lot herself, she gave endlessly to others with her time, her delicious baked good, etc. She will be missed.

From Michelle Gabriel...

When Doris lived in Eudora she lived directly behind the post office, where I worked. She spoiled us on a regular basis with her fresh baked goodies. She was always so happy and friendly. So sorry for your loss.

From Carl and Joyce Burkhead...

We enjoyed Doris immensely. She was a delightful lady who was always willing to help. She helped to take care of our pastor, Nick Willem’s at MSC when he was not able to care for himself. God decided that He wanted her more than He wanted her here.
