For many years, she loved to host the family gatherings and everyone was always welcome at her house. Doris was famous for her chocolate cake that was loved by all. Doris loved to travel, particularly with yearly visits to New Mexico and Colorado. In addition to church activities, Doris was active in the Garden Club, CLS and Meals on Wheels. Bridge and gardening were favorite hobbies. Doris was preceded in death by her husband, Sidney Hearne in 2012. She leaves a daughter, Susan and husband, Dr. Joe Todd of Hudson Oaks; son, S.
