When I picture Aunt Doris - I picture her smiling. She was always good natured. I have the best memories of spending weekends or summer days at her house- playing in their big yard and sitting under the weeping willow tree.I thought it was so special at meal times when she would put the food she had made on the lazy Susan!
She.was a dear woman and I’m so thankful that God allowed me to be one of her nieces.

My grandma (Doris Mable Haepp) is one of those souls that sticks around and keeps filling you with love, even with just a thought of her. She will always be remembered as the joy she was and the love that she brought to everything. She has had such a great impact on everyone she knew especially her family , filling life with her care, love and tenderness that she gave to everybody. I am so grateful to be her descendant, she loved her whole family so fully. And hopefully some of her good nature has rubbed off on us all. She will be greatly missed but never forgotten.

Below is a little Valentine my Grandpa made for her with his drawings all over it. Love is a simple thing that endures with persistence. I am glad to know that they are at peace together now, forever holding hands. oxoxoxo W

Deb, Doug, Will and Lindsay,
Doris embodied all that is good in people - her happy nature, broad tolerance, love for family and friends, and joy for life. I'm glad I was able to know her a little bit. How lucky you were to have had her in your lives.

Love to you all, Catherine

Grandma ~ I miss you. I miss your deep love and appreciation for everything and everyone you surrounded yourself with. I miss the smell of your jergens lotions. I miss your fried chicken and chip steak gravy. I miss your hugs, the softness of your skin. I miss your stories of your childhood, the war, Chicago, and your sisters. I miss the stories you made up about people and things around us. I miss holding your hand. I miss watching you read. I miss your laughter and ability to not take things too seriously. I miss how you never seemed stressed (to me at least). I miss your kindness and gentleness. I miss how you'd scare when Will put plastic snakes in the bed. I miss how you'd put me to bed when I was young. I miss how you and Grandpa would make us popcorn in the afternoons. I miss the time with you at your library. I miss the love you filled spaces with. I miss you. And I am so happy you are free. You live on in the wind, in the snow, in the sun, and in the birds. I cannot wait to celebrate you even more. Love you Grandma. - Lindsay Jo
