Doris was a very happy, unselfish, and loving person throughout her whole life. She was born “on” a farm in ND and didn’t experience city life until moving to Dickinson ND at the age of 12, where she made lifelong friends. Doris’s admirable traits served her well, especially in the challenging life after moving from Washington State to Mississippi and Louisiana in the mid 1960’s. I am forever thankful to Doris and Valton for welcoming our Mother Harriet into their home in 1984 and for the love and care they gave her until she passed away in 1991. Doris: “The LORD bless you and keep you; The LORD make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.”

Mrs. Slade was a delightful lady who became my friend while a resident at the Arbor. I would see and greet her every morning that I was on duty, by stopping at her table in the dining room at breakfast. She always had a cheerful response to me and occasionally she would have a chore for me to do with which I would assist her in my duties as her "fix it" man. She always expressed her gratefulness for any help I gave her. I affectionately came to call her "Miss Doris", and she was a sweet and kind friend to me. May she rest in peace and may God grant her family solace and strength for their loss. We have all lost a truly lovely lady in Miss Doris.
