    Sorry to lose Mom. She was a strong woman. We will miss her.

    My mom, Marilyn Turner, was a good friend of Doris. I am sure they are giggling it up on the other side. So sorry for your loss.

    Doris was my 2nd cousin and a neat lady. She would stop by and see my parents whenever she was in Tekamah. She will be greatly missed.

    To the family, my sincere condolences. Doris and I worked together in the Training Section of the IRS for several years. Great memories. She was always a pleasure to know as a person and also as a fellow employee. RIP.

    It is difficult to describe all that Mom meant to me in just a few word. But what truly fills my heart is the wonderful comments from the staff at Crown Pointe when they relate stories & the interactions they had with Mom. A lifelong resident of NE, she made friends where ever she went. I love you Mom.
