My Mom cared about her students and family. I never heard her speak an unkind word about any person or group. She made friends easily whether it was in church, school, Scouting or in the neighborhood. Terribly she (and Dad, E. Scott Johnson) fell victim to Alzheimer's disease with Dad passing in January 2016 - He was always looking out for her - asking "Where is Doris?" Now they are together in God's kingdom and he no longer has to ask "Where is Doris?" We ask that you consider a donation to the Alzheimer's Foundation who fight to end the disease.. They will recognize your donation on the page and send the family a notice so we can thank you. Her tribute page:
