Sorry for your loss. I use to cut Doris’s hair many years ago. She was so fun to visit with. I saw her many times at the senior center when she came for cards. She always had a smile & lots of hugs. A great lady. May she RIP

I met Doris very soon after moving to Winona in 1968. She was my "egg lady" and asked me to join her bowling team, which I did. We bowled for years ending around 1998. Our children: Chris, Carrie, Craig and Cammie visited the farm and picked raspberries, cucumbers and hickory nuts. Doris fed us lunch and we visited with Elmer. She always loved the story about Cammie telling Elmer that he had such "tiny eyes." Her smile was infectuous and I will certainly miss visiting with her at LWM each summer. A wonderful lady.

Marian (Albrecht) Paulson was my mom. Doris and her were great cousins and friends. My family loved Doris very much. I am sure her smiling face will be missed.

Your whole family is in my thoughts and prayers. Doris was such a special lady. She always had such a big smile and a kiss every time I saw her. And her and her table of ladies at LWM kept an eye on all the comings and goings. She will be greatly missed.

My sympathy to all of you. Prayers and love to you all.

Denny, Sherry & family, so sorry to hear of the loss of your mother and my aunt Doris. You have my deepest sympathy.

Linda & Duane Franzwa on Dec 6, 2018

Candle"Grandma" Girtler was an awesome lady, our kids liked having her as a neighbor and always called her grandma. She always waved as she drove by, a smile and a wave from a great neighbor! Rest in peace Doris.

Duane & Paulette Kinneberg on Dec 6, 2018
