Dear family of Doris's,
She was always nice to work with at the Buckeye Mart, very thoughtful. I remember one time I went in to fill in for an employee that had called off, I worked at a bank downtown too. I came in a few minutes later than the employee was scheduled, I was reprimanded by the boss for it, Doris said to me, "Not to fret about it, he is like that to everyone". "He probably didn't realize that you were called in to replace her." Anyhow, she went and talked to the boss because he came and apologized to me. She was that kind of a person. I never forgot that or her.
Please accept my condolences,
Joyce
