At the family's convenience, there will be a private burial and internment will be at Maple Grove Cemetery in Horseheads, NY.

Doris's family would like to express their sincere thanks to the doctors and nurses of the ER and I.C.U at the Arnot Ogden Medical Center for the care that they provided Doris.  Their empathy and caring work truly earns them the right to be called "Heroes".

Doris deeply loved her family and friends.  She also loved to bake, cook and epecially loved her animals (her babies). She touched so many more lives with her generosity, wisdom, selflessness, sense of humor, and love than she could have ever realized.  She will be truly missed, but her memory will live in our hearts always.
