Doris helped everyone, always bringing food when someone in the family was sick. She knit and crocheted many afghans to give to family members. She enjoyed bowling, liked watching the Minnesota Twins, and exceled at playing cards – “31” was her favorite!

She was preceded in death by her husband, Chris in July of 1993; both parents, John and Clara Ramsey; brothers, Everett, Hartwick, Alert “Bud”; sister, Martha Wangen; sister in-law, JoAnn Ramsey; and brother in-law, Orin Wangen.
Blessed be her memory!
