Doris was a faithful believer in Christ and longtime member of Hope Lutheran Church (St. Louis) and previously Holy Cross Lutheran (St. Louis). She was a selfless and giving person, a devoted wife and mother who loved spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved working puzzles, trivia, counted cross stitch and was an avid viewer of the game show network. Most people who knew her thought her to be one of the sweetest and kindest persons they knew, and this is how she’ll be remembered.
Services: Visitation at KUTIS AFFTON Chapel on Wednesday, July 29, 4-8 p.m. and service to celebrate both Doris and Leslie’s eternal life at Hope Lutheran Church, 5218 Neosho St., Thursday, July 30, at 12p.m. Memorials to Hope Lutheran Church appreciated.
