On Dec. 10, 1950, she married Christopher A. Johnson at East Freeborn Lutheran Church.

Doris helped everyone, always bringing food when someone in the family was sick. She knit and crocheted many afghans to give to family members. She enjoyed bowling, liked watching the Minnesota Twins and excelled at playing cards — 31 was her favorite!

Doris is survived by her brother, Gordon (Ramona) Ramsey; sister, Janice (Bob) Knutson; as well as many nieces, nephews and extended relatives.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Chris, in July 1993; parents John and Clara Ramsey; brothers Everett, Hartwick and Alert “Bud;” sister, Martha Wangen; sister-in-law, JoAnn Ramsey; and brother-in-law, Orin Wangen.

Blessed be her memory.
