First and foremost, Doris Florene Gubser was a Christian and believed Jesus was the Son of God. A devout Protestant, she was her family’s prayer warrior.
In Doris’s younger years, she was an award-winning Soprano Soloist, singing in an Oregon State competition while in High School. She continued to sing solos, in trios, church choirs, and play the organ most of her adult life. She was also an avid roller skater and could dance while she skated. Her family kept horses and she loved to ride as well.
After marrying her husband, Norman R. Gubser, Doris became a lifelong homemaker and traveled extensively with him, all over the world. Norman was a Command Sgt. Major in the U.S. Army. Doris served by his side for 22 years until his retirement in 1968.
She continued to be a homemaker, a wife and mother to her husband and sons; grandma to grandchildren and great grandchildren for many years.
Doris became a widow in March of 2002 when Norman passed away in his sleep.
Mom, Momma, Grandma, Grandma Doris will be sorely missed. She was much loved. She died in peace, surrounded by family who loved her. She lived to the grand old age of 92.
One of her favorite solos was, “In the Garden” (and he walks with me and he talks with me…)
