    Doris, yours was a life well-lived. A good friend, good mother, hard worker, caregiver and volunteer…even a Red Hat lady. You had lots of friends and extended family that loved you dearly and feel blessed you have been a part of our lives. Now you are in God’s hands but you will live in our hearts forever. Love, Ginger

    To Doris’s family – I am sorry for your loss and pray for you. Dewy and Amy (Hammer) Parks baby sat me when I was about 15 months old while my Mom (Hattie Hammer) was in the hospital when my sister (Elizabeth) was born on May 6, 1945. My Mom also had surgery so I likely was there for 1-2 months. Doris always reminded me of that time as I was not old enough to remember. My Dad was Roger Hammer
