SEATTLE — Memorial service for Doris J. (Lahmon) Wolfe will be held Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at the Lakeridge Lutheran Church, 7465 S. 112th St., Seattle, WA 98178.
Doris went home to be with the Lord on Friday, July 17, 2009, surrounded by her loving family and friends. She was born Jan. 26, 1942, in Newark, Ohio, to the late Floyd C. and Emma (Redifer) Lahmon. In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by a sister, Fran Cathel; and a brother, Bill Lahmon.
Doris left Mount Vernon, Ohio, and moved to Seattle, Wash., in 1991 where she went to be closer to her son and daughter and their families. She worked in the draperies business followed by working in the bakery at Albertsons and Thriftway just as she had worked at Big Bear in Mount Vernon. She loved the natural and simple pleasures of life such as gardening, bird watching, and the farmers market. She was very close to her brothers and sisters and their families as well as her very dear friend for nearly 50 years, Kathy Daubenspeck. Doris had a special relationship with her three grandchildren and enjoyed sharing time with them. She also was especially close to her friend and companion, Don Sorenson, and enjoyed sharing her life with him.
She is survived by her two sons, David Johnson and Douglas (Heather) Johnson; daughter, Vera Johnson; three grandchildren, Quinn Johnson, Johanna Johnson-Murphy and Rowan Curtin; sisters, Faye (CJ) St. John, Laura (Bob) Meek and Carol Ann; brothers, Robert (Linda) Lahmon, Cary (Audrey) Lahmon, Jim (Jane) Lahmon, Ralph (Linda) Lahmon, John (Sharon) Lahmon, Floyd (Kim) Lahmon and George (Jane) Lahmon; brother-in-law, Merle Cathel; one uncle, Edward Lahmon; one aunt, Vera (Albery) Lahmon; 13 nephews; 18 nieces; her special friends, Don Sorenson of Seattle, Wash., and Kathy Daubenspeck of Mount Vernon, Ohio; her Lakeridge Lutheran Church family; and many other friends.
In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to the Lakeridge Lutheran Church.
A memorial service here in Ohio will be announced at a later date.
