Condolences - Doris Joann Marini

We served for Jim and with Doris at Fort Knox in the Armor School 1978-81 and remained friends ever since. She was a great influence to Army wives in our organizations with her vast experience and a superb/caring mentor to our kids and others at Fort Knox High School until she retired. Do Nurses ever retire? She loved a good estate sale and knew the bones of old furniture. We will sing to her, "The Last Rose of Summer" in her honor and memory. Slan Abhaile!

We became friends with Doris and Jim at Memorial United Meth. Church, especially in the "Seekers" S. S. Class many years ago. We were surprised and saddened to read of Doris's passing. May the good Lord bless and keep you until you are together again.

Nurse Marini, befriended me my first day of work, at Pierce Elementary in 1991,as Special Needs aide and again school year 93' at Kingsolver, until my retirement, in 2005. For a while at King, due to budget cuts, Doris worked between Pierce and King, while she was not present, she trained me to perform her duties. I had not seen, Doris in years. I got to visit her when she was hospitalized back in the Spring of last year. I am grateful to have seen her bright eyes and big wide smile! I loved her sense of humor and the love and respect, we had for one another! Jim, Jenny and though I never got the chance to meet you, Andy, I felt as though I knew you, Doris always spoke of you! I will miss that red headed turned white haired, old lady! That was a joke, between us two! I pray that you have, God's, peace, understanding and unwavering love!

I was so broken hearted when I read of Doris’s passing. I enjoyed her friendly smile and easy laugh when we worked together at Fort Knox High School. Doris was so proud of her family. She agreed to let Jennie babysit our son, Kevin, and we were so grateful. I send my love and condolences to the family. This world has lost an exceptional woman, mother, wife, nurse, and friend. I will always have loving memories of Doris.

I really liked Doris even though we only saw each other a few times. She was a fellow nurse and had a wonderful sense of humor. She will be missed. Take care. Cathy
