“Granny D” was loved for her kind nature, sweet smile and devotion to her children and grandchildren. She loved her “babies”, no matter their age, young or old. Doris was a faithful member of the Liberty Baptist Church in Harrisburg IL and always had one of her Bibles nearby.

Wes (Misty) Adams, Lorton, VA; Stephanie (Jeff) Hall, Herrin IL; Terra Webb, Herrin IL; Taylor Adams, Panama City Beach, FL.

“Granny D” especially was blessed with a growing family of great and great-great grandchildren. She also adored the children and grandchildren of her extended and blended family. She was blessed with having a lifelong special friend, Angie Hathaway of Harrisburg, IL.

In addition to her parents and husbands, Doris was preceded in death by her sister, Donna Allen.
