Doris entered this life on October 22, 1928 and peacefully departed on April 3, 2014 at her home.
As a lifelong resident of Dallas, she treasured her childhood friends and was proud to have been a Woodrow Wilson Wildcat – Class of 1946, so much so that her schools’ fight songs were among the first tunes she taught her children. Doris later attended Southern Methodist University and Texas State College for Women.
As a charter member of The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd, Doris wore several hats; including President of the Women’s Auxiliary, Acolyte Mother, and even played the piano for the children’s services. Many lifelong friendships were made through service at her church.
Doris had a variety of passions, including golf, playing the piano, ham radio (KA5BBB), cross-word puzzles and… everyone knew not to call during Wheel of Fortune. A challenging game of gin rummy would never be turned down.
Doris never knew a stranger and welcomed all to her “kitchen table” for a good talk and a refreshing cocktail; all of which were accompanied by a feast from her “magical” refrigerator, producing gourmet meals in seconds.
Family members who will greet her in heaven include her parents, Ruby & Lemuel Briggs; brother, Lloyd Briggs; husband, Jack P. Morgan; and son, Jack B. Morgan. Those who remain to treasure and celebrate her life include her daughter, Mary Peltier and husband Kenneth; grandchildren, Eric (Fairbanks, AK), Sarah (Dallas), Kathryn and her children Jackson and Karly (Wasilla, AK), and Scott (Centennial, CO).
KA5BBB…signing out. (–. — — -.. -… -.– .)
A celebration of Doris’ life will be held on Wednesday, April 9th at 10:00 AM at The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd with a reception to follow at the church – 11122 Midway Rd. Dallas, Texas
Doris’ favorite charity was the Hospice organization.
