Doris attended Marshville High School and worked several years for Cuddy Farms in Marshville, NC. She was a member of Flint Ridge Baptist Church. Doris loved to crochet and over the years, many of her nieces received lovely scarves, booties, of Barbie dolls with crocheted outfits. Doris had regular visits from many of her nieces and nephews before her declining health.
Doris was a resident of Autumn Care Nursing Facility in Marshville. Several members of the staff spoke highly of Doris nothing that she as an avid reader and loved reading the local newspaper. We all know that Doris was a lady of few words, but when she spoke, we listened !
Doris was preceded in death by her parents, two sisters, Dora Robinson (Isom) and Beatrice Redfern (Claude); five brothers: Curtis (Joyce), Kelly (Zaddie), Henry (Wilma), O.C. (Lena Ruth), and Wallace Marsh (Verla).
