Doris was an X-CON, former Contel employee. We all loved her easy going quiet way. Elaine Sanders

I worked with Ms. Doris many years ago as an operator at Contel telephone. We always had the best time. She always took care of us young kids, as she called us. She taught me that dry mini wheat were the best snack ever. She will always have a special place in my heart. Prayers for the family as you navigate this very hard time!
