    For Doris Toneatti

    A gentle soul with a smiling face;
    her love of God, His Eternal Grace.
    His Word she held close in her heart;
    the Hope in Christ to ne’er depart.
    Rejoice with her for yet she lives;
    Salvation’s joy such peace it gives!

    Doris: A wonderful woman that became a part of the family. She will be sorely missed. Her passing is difficult for all that knew and loved her, yet a blessing for Doris it would have been heart wrenching to watch her linger and suffer. Rest in Peace, sweet Doris. You are loved and will always be remembered as a missing part of our family until we meet again.

    Please accept my deepest sympathy. It was always a pleasure to run into Doris and “the girls” at dunkin donuts. Doris always had a smile and was a pleasure to talk to. She certainly enjoyed every day. Bless her heart and may she rest in peace

    Doris, That wonderful sweet lady across the street. I remember visiting her and getting that warm hug and feeling joy and happiness. I have know her for 14 years and was{ and still is} a big part of my life. Even though i wasn’t a “blood relative” i was still as close to be called family. She loved her granddaughter, little frida and her great grandson, and her son gary. My nana[jane] and ruthie and doris were well known as the three musketeers because they went most places together. She will be missed

    Doris was a Bright light in a sometimes difficult and hurried world. Always smiling and happy and a hard working Christian for all whom she encountered. I shall remember her happy disposition and her lovely smile which touched my heart deeply. We worked together for many years at the food pantry in Dedham and she was great fun to be with. My most sincere condolences for your great loss. God bless!
