She was born, married and raised her children in Clifton, N.J., before moving to Shrewsbury, Vt., in 1981. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family – children, grandchildren, brothers and sisters, extended family – and her very good friends of over 60 years. Everyone who met her loved her smile, easy ways and graciousness. She loved vacations at Cape Cod and building their home in Vermont. Doris was a member of the Brookdale Baptist Church in Bloomfield, N.J., and then the Village Baptist Church in Belmont, Vt.
She was predeceased by John, her husband of 60 years; by four brothers, Charles, Albertus, Edward and Donald; and by a sister, Katherine Mastenbrook.
She is survived by her daughter, Susan Davidson and husband Gil of Campbell Hall, N.Y.; by three sons, John and wife Cathy of Clifton, N.J., Kenneth and wife Alida of Chippenhook, Vt., and James and wife Marlene of Lodi, N.J.; by a sister, Lucille Kirk of Albrightsville, Pa.; by three brothers, Robert and Albert of The Villages, Fla., and Jack of Simi, Calif.; and by five grandchildren, Christopher and Bridget Davidson, Jonathan, James and Melanie Muska.
Her family is especially grateful for the care, comfort, and compassion shown to Mom by the entire staff of the Campbell Hall Rehab Center.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Village Baptist Church, Belmont, VT 05730; and the Blooming Grove Volunteer Ambulance Corps, Washingtonville, NY 10992.
