Condolence & Memory Journal

Doris is sorely missed a year later since her passing...she was a wonderful human being...always caring and loving and did a stellar job on my taxes every year. Doris always had a zest for life...she was cut from a very unique cloth...always compassionate and empathetic and so very engaged...she is a beautiful angel now...

Sorry to read of your loss. Both of your parents were close friends with LeRoy & Bernice Hergenhahn.

Doris was an absolutely delightful woman. She had done my taxes for about 30 years and was always so gracious and kind every year when I'd bring my folder to her...always so loving, interested, engaging and precious! I always enjoyed George so much, too! God bless her family and friends now mourning her passing. I have wondrous memories....I can only imagine yours.

I have always been grateful to Doris (a grade school classmate) who introduced me to my wife Rosemary at a party at Doris' house in 1949. My wife and Doris have remained close until ten years ago my wife embarked on the same trip Doris is on now. I know they have a lot of catching up to do. Thank you Doris and God Speed.
