I knew Doris from playing bridge we played together for almost a year as partner. She will be missed from around the bridge tables. Glad I had a chance to meet and play with her.

I was one of the Scrapbook group with Doris.
She taught me so much. We enjoyed seeing
each others families as we worked on ours.
It is hard to believe she is gone.
Our sympathy to the family.

I enjoyed attending scrapbook classes with Doris and Judy and playing Mah Jongg at Doris' home here in Herons Glen on Wednesday nights with Sandy Rigney & Sue Pollack. I will always remember when Doris would win a hand she would be overjoyed and throw her hands in the air and yell!!!  She loved to WIN!!! I also enjoyed making several of Hollis' trips with her and Ron. She was a beautiful lady and I pray her soul will rest in Peace. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the family during this difficult time.  Mary Ann & Andy

The first time she played golf here in Herons Glen, I played with her, and she got a hole in one on #4. Lovely lady. Enjoyed her laugh and regretted not taking her scrapbook class. God blessed you and now you're with Ron again.

Doris lived on the same street as us in Heron's Glenn. We also got to know her from Good Shepherd United Methodist church where she sponsered me for my walk to Emmaus. She also was in the same church small group. I always enjoyed her friendly smile golfing or just enjoying her company. She made the best of life and was a joy to be around. Although we miss her, we know that she is now walking with the Lord.

Doris - my friend and golfer - I just cannot believe this news. We had so many Fridays together playing golf. You were a great friend and usually beat me in golf. As I go out on the course this morning, I will be thinking of you. 

Rest in peace my friend.

I golfed with Doris the few years prior to her leaving Herons Glen. She was a great lady. My condolences to her family.

Our cousin, Doris, was a kind and loving person. We will miss her frequent phone calls and conversations. She was always interested in what her cousins were doing and wanted to be kept up to date about their passings. It is indeed with sadness that we grieve for her, but we know that she will joyfully join her husband, parents and siblings in her heavenly home having been greeted there by her loving God.  Thank you, Doris, for the love you have shown to others.     Love from Beverly and Ellen

I enjoyed a wonderful friendship with Doris for almost 20 years. We had many good times playing golf, bridge and visiting. She was a very kind person who enjoyed her friendships and was especially proud of her children and grandchildren. My thoughts and prayers with each of you.

We were so glad Doris was such a big part of Good Shepherd UMC in North Fort Myers, Fl. I worked with Doris in the Church Office and when she organized the church directory along with being the historian. We loved her and miss her. See you in heaven!   Helen Foster, Good Shepherd UMC

Doris -You were my bridge partner for only a short time but you were a joy to be around and I really enjoyed our email exchanges about hand records and books we were reading. You helped me improve my game and were serious about learning new things but made me realize as you kept saying it "Bridge is only a game." Thanks. You will be missed.

Fond Memories

I Remember the Beatty family reunions each August and catching up with all my first cousins in the 1950's.  Doris was instrumental in organizing a restart of the reunion for first cousins in 2009 with 100% attendance for a weekend in Indiana, Pa. It had been 50 years since we had all seen each other.  We dd it again in '11, '13, and '15.  Michelle and I had a wonderful afternoon with Doris in 2017, shortly after her FL - IL move. We had talked about seeing each other again soon but Doris has now gone to be with Ron. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family.  Floyd Beatty & Michelle Thibedeau

We would see Doris at the Philippi Family Reunion in Rochester Mills PA usually held in September. Doris always enjoyed catching up on everyone and Dale and I would enjoy finding out what was happening in her life! Absent from the body, present with the Lord. I’m sure my Dale was glad to see her beautiful face when she entered heaven! May you have His peace during this difficult time!
Love & Prayers!

Fondest memory

I have known Doris Coup for more than half my life, as I am Joyce's esister-in-law.  Knowing her for so long means I have many memories, especially since she recently returned to Illinois to be near her kids and grandkids.  Her pure genorosity in giving me her late husband, Ron's gold diabetic medical medallion is something I will never forget, as i am also a Type 1 diabetic.  It was such a thoughtful gift, and I wear it everyday, around my neck.  As I wear it I will be reminded of Doris and Ron who are together once again.  I will keep all of her family in my prayers.  Lisa
