Doris Faye Armstrong Dossett
May 4, 1932 ~ October 26, 2023 (age 91) 91 Years Old
Doris Armstrong Dossett passed away peacefully on October 26, 2023 at Crestwood Rehabilitation Center where she had been a resident for 18 months. She was born on May 4, 1932 to William Evans Armstrong and Betty Clema Solomon Armstrong in Hiram, Texas. She attended and graduated from Wills Point public schools. In April 1950, she married Billy Richard Dossett and they were happily married until his death in 1992. Interestingly, Doris was the youngest of five children and Billy was the oldest of five children. They had two daughters, Sharon Belew of Wills Point, Texas and Carolyn Miller of Brenham, Texas.
Doris was a faithful member of Locust Grove Baptist Church where she sang in the choir, taught Sunday school classes, and worked in the adult and youth ministries. She had enormous talent for crocheting and made wonderful gifts and keepsakes for family and friends. Doris had a successful career at Southwestern Bell Telephone Company where she worked for 35 years. She traveled to New York during 1974 to work on the divestiture of Southwestern Bell later known as AT&T. She retired in 1986 to spend more time with family and friends.
Doris was first and foremost a loving wife, daughter, sister, mother, aunt, grandmother, and great grandmother. She was known affectionately as “Granny” and took great joy in cooking special meals for her family and loved to host Thanksgiving every year. Her homemade chocolate and coconut meringue pies were family favorites.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Billy Dossett; daughter, Sharon Belew; and son-in-law, Thomas Belew. She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, two grandsons, one granddaughter, and five great granddaughters.
A visitation was held for the immediate family, and Doris was laid to rest at Rader Cemetery in Kaufman County.
The family wishes to thank the nurses, doctors and caregivers at Crestwood Rehabilitation Center for their kindness, care and devotion for Doris during the past 18 months. We also want to thank The Hospice of East Texas for their care and support over the past few months. You were a blessing and comfort to our family.
