I am a relative of Doris' stepmother, Esther. Our families were close in the past (Doris was in my mother's wedding) but lost touch over time. I have a picture of Uncle Clayton, Doris' father and one of Kenneth, her brother, that I would like to return to the family if anyone is interested. Many fond memories---

I worked with Doris for many years at Oneida National Bank. She was such a fine woman. However what I remember most about her is the great love and respect she had for Bill and the wonderful care she gave him. My deepest sympathy to her nieces and nephews. May she rest in peace. Sincerely, George Tulloch, Utica, NY

I am the daughter of Rosemary Ellsworth-Crosier , Mildred's daughter- Doris's sister. I met Aunt Doris one time when I was very young, she was very nice to me :) She seemed to be a humble woman and that is what always stuck w/ me about her. Just wished that I grew up with all my relatives :( I'm sure you whom have known her will miss her. Now she is with some of our family that have gone on to greener pastures...
