Our beloved and dedicated mother returned home to be with her lord and savior after a long and courageous battle on Monday, Jan. 16, 2012.
She was born Feb. 27, 1930, in Casper, Wyo., the second of five children to Leo Adami and Dortha ArNettie Lees Adami. She was raised in the Red Walls area of north-central Wyoming, living in both the Casper and Buffalo areas.
Doris graduated from Johnson County High School in Buffalo with the class of 1948. Doris also attended Sheridan Community College. Doris was a dedicated and loving person and enjoyed her many friends, raising a family and retiring in 1989. She enjoyed many hobbies, from watching old John Wayne movies to playing cards, crocheting, gardening, traveling and camping. Doris also enjoyed her time with the Widowed Persons Group in Billings, developing very dear friends.
Doris was preceded in death by her husband, Charles Riley Jones, in 1994; her two brothers, Melvin and Lee Adami; and her parents, Leo and Dortha. Her final resting place is the Willow Grove Cemetery in Buffalo, Wyo., beside her husband, Charles, and near parents, friends and family.
She is survived by daughter Beverly Jones; sons Charles David, Samuel with wife, Karen, and Andrew, all of Billings, and son Riley and wife, Dawn, of Everett, Wash.; sister Geraldine and her family in Bountiful, Utah; and brother Marvin and wife, Joyce, in Billings. Her grandchildren include Jacob in Florida; Michayla, Alicia, Michael, Brett, Morgan, along with Arlene, Shane, Amber in Billings; Christine in Kansas, and Allison in Everett. She also adored her nine great-grandchildren located from Kansas to Montana.
Mom, we love you and will forever. It is now time for us to let you go so you can be with your parents, brothers and our father. You did well, Mom, very well indeed. Thank you.
A memorial service will be 10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 21, at Smith's West Chapel, 304 34th St. W.
