Doris peacefully slipped into Heaven on Tuesday, August 22, 2017 at BelleviewHeights in Aurora, CO.
Doris was born on May 24, 1928 in Alliance, NE. She was a junior in HS when the Riggins family moved to Chadron from Lexington, NE. Liifelong friendships developed as cheerleading and school dances kept her hopping! After graduating HS in May 1946, while working at Petersen Drug, she met and shortly married David Eugene Anthony on June 1, 1946 at ChadronUnitedMethodistChurch. Upon moving to Kansas City, MO, Doris worked while David attended Watchmakers school. The honeymoon soon became well supervised by the arrivals of a daughter and a son in 1947 & 1948! There wasn’t anything Doris wouldn’t do for others and her talents were vast—from jewelry store bookkeeper, Sunday School superintendent, best cook and bread baker, to gardening, sewing, knitting, embroidery. After David retired, they lived in Scottsbluff for a few years. Doris was employed by Zoellner’s Clothing Store where she thrived as clothing buyer & managed women’s apparel. Catching the bug from David, her competitiveness on the golf courses also won her several trophies & prizes in clubhouses! Importantly though, her deepest passions were for God and her family.
Survivors include daughter Diana Parks; son Rick Anthony; grandchildren Troy Stout, Camala Mann, LeiShel Patrick, Colette Fernandez, Ricci Sanders and Kaly Anthony; nine great-grandchildren; sister Georgia Osborne; and brothers Jerry Riggins and Randy Riggins.
Preceding in death were husband David Anthony; parents Lowell and Gertrude Riggins; brother Tom Riggins; and grandson Jesse Anthony.
The family expresses great appreciation and gratitude to Belleview Heights Alzheimer’s SpecialCareCenter and to Sunset Hospice, both in Aurora, CO, for their extraordinary philosophy of care provided abundantly for Doris.
Newcomer Funeral Home of Aurora, CO is in charge of arrangements for Doris Mae Anthony.
