Our mother generously loved her family and modeled Christian service to her family, neighbors, friends and fellow church members.  She and Johnny quietly served building ramps and making home repairs at their own expense for those in need. Volunteerism defined our mother- -serving others was her greatest joy. Children in Haiti are wearing clothes our mother sewed so lovingly for years through the church ministry.  She delivered Meals on Wheels, sang in the women’s chorus Encore and the Glory Choir, and cooked meals for Hospice families. Woodworking and making pies were two of her favorite hobbies; she never liked sitting still!

Doris and husband Billy Joe Holliday were active members of Trinity United Methodist Church in Wichita Falls. She and Johnny Raub were active members of Faith Village Church of Christ.

Memorials may be sent to Hospice of Wichita Falls, 4909 Johnson Rd., Wichita Falls, Texas 76310 or Meals on Wheels, 1008 Burnett St. Wichita Falls, Texas 76301.
