  1. Dear Family,
    Our love and prayers go out to each one of you at this time especially Pearl and Rushia. We loved Doshia very much and will miss her too. She was our adopted mother and she considered us her children and loved as we were her very own. We will never forget her loving, giving, sharing heart. All our love, Steve and Kathy

  2. I am a nurse at Park Ridge Living Center and took care of Doshia on nights. She was a wonderful lady and we will miss her very much; she was loved by all. My sympathy is with her entire family. Anna Walters

  3. My deepest sympathy is extended to the family. Doshia was a wonderful lady and I have had the priviledge of knowing her for the last 38 years. She will be greatly missed on this earth but I know she is in a better place where she was welcomed by our Lord with open arms.
    Love to all. Theresa

  4. Sister Doshia will be missed. I attended Church with her and her presence always brought a sense of family, and caring. She was a very kind woman. Mary Ross
