I will definitely miss Doris, her smile, her chit chat and the strong stands she would take when she knew she was right. Yes we rubbed noses a couple of times but were able to extract ourselves as ladies. She worked endlessly on trying to find and convince our missing classmates to attend various events and was very successful for the good of all. She and I were related we found out a couple of years ago through her husband’s family. His uncle and my uncle (both owners of Las Palmas chile company in Ventura) were brothers which we had a difficult time believing but after a little googling we found out it was true. What does that relationship make us, nothing since neither were blood relatives of ours but it sure made for interesting conversation, a little deeper understanding, and a closer relationship. I will truly miss being able to call her and talk, will remember her always as a true and loyal friend. May she truly rest in peace. Love to her brothers, Dennis and Bill, and her family and friends, my heart is with you.
I am so sad at Dori’s passing. She was a good and generous friend. We lost touch after I left MVHS, but when we reconnected 3 years ago, her friendship was effortless and real. During long telephone chats Dori loved to share stories of her life as a teacher, and her years with Les. She talked with such love about her brothers, niece, and nephews and her friends in the “once a month lunch bunch”. She was a really smart woman with many talents and a big heart. My deepest sympathy goes out to her loved ones.
Chuck and I send our deepest sympathy and condolences to Bill, Dennis and all of Doris’ family. We remember Doris as a wonderful classmate and dedicated member of the Mountain View High School Class of 1960! In recent years, we reconnected, due to her outstanding and tireless efforts on behalf of our MVHS Class of 1960 reunion committee.
It was wonderful to talk to Doris, when she phoned, over the last several years, to keep us updated on classmates and all reunion events. Her lovely personality and kindness will always be remembered with love.
Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends,
Pam (Reed) and Chuck Griffiths
