Doris Jean Vincent, 95, passed away on December 10, 2021. She was born December 23, 1925, in Crawfordsville, IN to George and Iva Maude (Wallace) Dickerson. Doris spent her early years in Crawfordsville, where she graduated from high school, met and later married Robert Barr Vincent on November 23, 1947.
Doris attended Indiana Business College and worked for General Telephone before her marriage. She and Bob raised three children in North Salem, IN, where they lived for 23 years. After her children were in school, she worked at American States Insurance, at the Indianapolis Jaycees for 19 years as their Office Manager, and worked at Bank One.
She was always a very involved member in church wherever she lived, but especially at North Salem Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and also at Countryside Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Winchester, IN. Over the years, she sang in the choir, played the organ, participated in Women’s fellowship Circles, filled in as church secretary and helped out as needed.
Even in her eighties, Doris volunteered at the St. Vincent Randolph Hospital in Winchester. She was very proud of the 10 gallons of blood she donated over the years.
Doris loved to travel and loved her family.
