and Cindy Rhodes (Brian), her brother Ron Patmore (Carol), nephew Wesley Patmore, and nieces Tammie (Pete and RJ) and Jacqueline Patmore. Sadly, Doris is predeceased by her son, Garth Nelson.

(Jarrett), Cory Davy (Allyssa Grant), Thomas Welder

(Kirsty and Grayson Ganzini), and two great-grandchildren Ryder and Baylee Starling. To her friends and family,

Doris will be remembered as a strong, extremely intelligent, reliable, and thoughtful woman who was very proud of her family and her accomplishments; a woman of true integrity.
