Doris was a loving woman that enjoyed her scratch off lottery tickets, her times at the casino, gardening, the birds in her yard, her game shows on TV, camping, baking and horses. Doris loved life and she loved people. She loved her time at the Genesee Market working and meeting people and her time at Kay’s Diner catching up with everyone on life things. Mostly though, Doris loved her family, her kids and her grandkids and great grandkids. Family meant the world to Doris and she loved spoiling them all.
Doris will be missed by her loving children, William "Bill" (Cheryl) Schultz, Linda "Lindy" Brandenburg, Lewis "Doug" (Teri Berg) Schultz, Curt (Kathy) Schultz, Tina (Jake) Roder and Brenda (Rob) Bauer; her grandchildren, William (Julie) Schultz, Jeffrey (Lori) Schultz, Stacy Richardson, Becky (Dave) Woods, Tyler (Jenny) Schultz, Brandi Larimore, Christopher (Michelle) Knoelke and Heather Martin; her 13 great-grandchildren; her brother, Clarence Place; and sister Marian Reeves; and other relatives and many good friends.
Preceding her in death are her parents; her two husbands; two brothers, George "Sunny" and Warren; and an infant sister, Mary.
The family would like to extend a sincere thank you to the doctors and staff at AngelsGrace for their loving care and compassion.
