    Doris’ love of life, family and friends filled her life with joy.  Through, reading, gardening, bridge, golf, family gatherings, tailgating at Eagles games with Burt and friends, her days were full of love, laughter and fun.  She was a faithful and longtime member of Trinity Presbyterian Church, Cherry Hill, NJ. She moved to NC in 2007 after Burt died to be near her girls. Everyone she met benefited from her kindness, her spirit and her wit.  Doris lived a long and happy life and will be forever missed.
