Obituary for Doris Lee Rayford

Doris Lee Rayford was born July 16,1943 to the late Lonnie and Alice Marie Jackson in Lafayette, Louisiana. Doris Lee Rayford departed this life September 12, 2018 after a gradual and painful decline in health. Her initial intent in coming to Toledo, Ohio was to bring her niece and nephew (Jarvis & Willie Jr. Hill, a.k.a Bubba) to their mother (sister, Lois). With Jarvis on her hip and Bubba on her coat tail, via the story told by Doris. She did not return to Louisiana, until years later. Starting a new journey in Toledo, she continued her education coming from Grambling State University to The University of Toledo, Lourdes University and Spring Arbor University.

Doris was employed at St. Vincent Hospital, Cordella Martin, United Way and Frederick Douglas Center. During her employment with United Way and her placement at the Frederick Douglas center Doris demonstrated such a lifestyle of dedication and creativity, that the two agencies collaborated and created a position entitled “Family Resource Coordinator”. After achieving this new position, Doris designed and constructed a girl’s group entitled GUTS “Girls United Together Socially”. She was also instrumental in becoming an special resource coordinator for the elderly.

She united with and received the holy ghost at Mt Sinai Pentecostal church in the early 1970s. She served as the bishop’s and church secretary. She was also a member of the choir and sales associate for the church store.

She united in holy matrimony to the love of her life Billy Rayford Sr. in 1968.

She was preceded in death by her mother and father, Lonnie and Alice Marie Jackson; two sisters, Mary Faison and Lois Hill; one brother, Paul Zeigler; and one sister-in-law, Connie Faye Rayford; one stepdaughter, Carla M. Bailey; and one granddaughter, Christal Monique Perdue.
