Doris Davis Shipe

January 11, 2013

Doris Davis Shipe, 87, of 215 Church Street Danville PA stepped into the arms of Christ on Friday, January 11, 2013 at Emmanuel Nursing Center Danville PA.  She was born February 16, 1925 in Danville PA, the daughter of the late Harry and Blanche Feisler Davis. She was a lifelong resident of Danville, except for the years of 1950-1951, when her husband, Gene, served with the US Army with the Danville National Guard in Colorado Springs CO.     

She graduated from Danville Area High School on “D-Day” June 6, 1944.  She was employed by Geisinger Medical Center and for Nationwide Insurance.

Doris was a lifelong member (from 2 weeks of age) of First Baptist Church Danville PA where she served faithfully in the Senior Choir for over 60 years. She joyfully served her church family with countless hours in numerous ways over the years.  She also enjoyed volunteering at Geisinger Medical Center with her sister Janie as a patient escort for over 30 years.  Doris especially enjoyed bowling.  She loved to travel, especially the adventurous cross country drives with her husband, which included a round trip to Fairbanks, Alaska on the Alcan Highway.   

Doris lived her life in full dedication and love to her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  She loved fellowship with her friends with whom she enjoyed a wide range of activities, always spreading good cheer and love to all.
