    My prayers and care join yours as family, nursing colleagues and friends of Doris. She was clearly a woman filled with a compassionate heart, hallmarked by cardiovascular wisdom, person-centeredness and a love for collegial mentoring. She was one of twelve Clinical Nurse Specialists at the Center for Advanced Nursing Practice-BryanLGH,and her practice excellence shaped not only the way clinicians thought but the way they practiced in multiple settings. Her commitment, competence, and compassionate presence saved many lives. Blessings and gratitude for Doris and her giftedness ~~ Sr. Maurita

    To the family and friends of Doris:

    I had the blessed fortune of bringing Doris into the family of care providers at Bryan Memorial Hospital. Doris was a brilliant nurse as defined by: high integrity, unlimited capacity for caring, brilliant intellect, and an ongoing pursuit of excellence. Doris never had to have the spotlight on her; she was content to let the light shine on others – in fact, she preferred it that way.

    The world has lost a kind soul in Doris – we are all blessed to have known her. But this I know, her spirit remains a force on the planet and those she touched will never forget the energy she unleashed in her quiet, unassuming manner.

    May she rest in true peace and may we celebrate her life.

    Over the last several days I’ve had many fond memories of Doris. She was our first ED CNS and was a fabulous role model for excellence in nursing practice. I will continue to think of her often.

    Mark and Family, I send most sincere sympathy for the loss of Doris. We were room mates at Immanuel, but lost track of each other. The last time we were together was at our 50th graduation reunion. She told me about her children and grandchildren of whom she was so proud. We also recalled the dance Jeanette, Doris, and I went to in Kimballton before we all were married! We all are very proud of her nursing accomplishments and think of her with love and respect.

    Doris was a neighbor of ours for many years until her 2011 hospitalization. We miss her occassional trips to our home to chat and warm up a chair. She was very active and we miss seeing her car go up the street, on the way to one of her errands. Everyone who knew her loved her. Rest in Peace Doris.

    Mark and family, I send my love and prayers to you in the loss of your loving and talented nurse mother and grandmother. I am sorry I did not have time to tell her goodbye. I will miss knowing she is no longer here for me to run into at Life Pointe or catch up on her latest news…usually about her family.

    Doris was truly a talented, bright and funny lady even when she was mad. She loved you,Erik and your children dearly.

    Please accept my condolences and prayers for Doris and family,

    Marcia Merboth (a co-worker)
