Doris E. Foemmel

Doris E. Foemwel, age 83, died June 4th at her home in Mesa, Arizona.

She was born on Oct. 27, 1920 in Clark County, to Edith N. (Watt) and Chester R. Spry. She received her education at schools in Richland County and Clark County, and graduated from Granton High School. After high school, Doris provided homemaker services and also worked as a waitress at the Merchants Hotel in Neillsville.

On May 2, 1942, Doris married Raymond H. Foemmel, of Granton. She was a homemaker and together they operated their dairy farm until retirement in 1972. They lived in Granton until 1981 and then moved to Neillsville for 10 years. In 1991, Doris and Raymond moved to Loveland, Colo. to be near their daughters. They remained there until relocating to Arizona in 2002. Doris was a member of Zion Lutheran Church in Granton and Mt. Olive Lutheran Church in Loveland, where she actively enjoyed the Keen-ager group. She enjoyed her family, reading, writing in her journals, fancy work, and especially her life's history of family photographs.

Doris is survived by her husband Raymond and three daughters, Joyce Elaine Rose and JoyAnn Gold, both of Tucson, Ariz.; Janice (Jim) Mesal, of Mesa, Ariz.; five grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, June 12 at the Good Shepherd Villa Chapel, 5848 E. University Drive, Mesa, Ariz. - 85205.

Cremated ashes will be returned to Wisconsin at a later date.
