Doris Stephens, 95, died Wednesday, May 8, 2013, at Cypress Grove
Rehabilitation Center. Doris was born in Evansville, Indiana, March 14,
1918, to John Morgan Gordon and Hattie (Dempsey) Gordon. She was a
graduate of Bosse High School.
She and the love of her life, Bertis L. Stephens, made their home in
Evansville until moving to Owensboro, Kentucky in 1959. In Evansville,
Doris worked in the office at DeJong's Dept. Store. After moving to
Owensboro, she worked for Hoosier Oil Co., then the Daviess County
Public Library, from which she retired. After retirement, she was a faithful
volunteer at Owensboro Healthpark Golden Partners. After Bert's death in
1980, she continued living in their Owensboro home until moving to
Newburgh in 2003. Doris's life is exemplified in the words "She had a true
servant's heart". So loved by all who knew her, her kind, loving, generous
spirit will live on within everyone whose life she touched. A lively sense of
humor and sharp wit complemented her lovely personality.
