I met Doris in 1974 as one of the first employees of the
newly formed Harker Heights bank. A wonderful person, she quickly became a valuable member of the bank staff. Over the years she exhibited the qualities strived for by many, but possessed by only a very few. Those qualities included honesty, dependability and a excellent work ethic. She set the standards for other staff members to follow.
There is deep sorrow at the passing of a good friend and a wonderful human being.
