She was deeply cherished and will be sadly missed by her granddaughters, Erika Mask (Graham), Hailee Barchard (Kyle), Jillian Thompson (Jared), Melissa Brustmann and Melissa Scott (Jeff), as well as her son-in-law Jim Barchard, her niece, Sheila (Bernie) Sollows and great-niece, Kaytlyn Sollows, and her many other nieces and nephews.

Doris was a selfless, caring person who always put others before herself. Although she struggled with many health issues over the years, she always wore a smile and was always up for anything fun. She made fast friends and touched many lives with her thoughtfulness and her positive attitude. Doris really treasured the times spent with family and friends and will be truly missed by many.
The family would like to extend many thanks to Dr. Lottering, Paula from CE LHINS and to the palliative care team from VHA, especially Lyn, Rae and Sherry for their great care, attentiveness and understanding over the past few weeks. Many thanks and gratitude to Kyle Warren who was very special to Doris and her family and was an integral part of her care team. We couldn’t have managed without all of you.
