Doris worked as a nurse’s aide for 20 years before retiring to become a full-time stay-at-home mom. Doris was renowned as the “madea” of the family and her church! She had a spunky personality that would have you crying from laughing so hard. She was notorious for providing her amazing wisdom. Doris loved spending time with her great-grandchildren. There’s no denying that, her grand babies as she called them, were her heart and joy. Doris served as the chair of her church’s mother board.
Doris was preceded in death by her mother and father, her two children, Valerie and Hassan, her sisters Augusta Carter and Winnie Scott, and her brother John Simmons.
