    • Doris Roberta Waring, 98, formerly of Linesville, passed on to Heaven on Tuesday, February 16, 2016, at Juniper Village in Meadville.

      She was born Sept. 13, 1917, in Omaha, Nebraska, the daughter of Lois Corey Weeks and Homer Weeks. At the age of two she and her family moved to Linesville, arriving at Center Road Depot to begin life on the farm of her great Uncle Frank Cory on Tighe Road. Doris attended the Conneaut Center one room school house and graduated from Linesville High School class of 1935.

      She worked as a telephone operator in Linesville Telephone Office and also as a dental assistant for the late Dr. Sturdevant.

      On July 28 1941, Doris married Paul Henry Waring. They were blessed with 68 years of marriage and four children. Paul preceded her in death on January 11, 2010.

      Doris was a member of Linesville First Baptist Church all her adult life, teaching Sunday school for many years, singing in the choir. She served as a deaconess, and in the American Baptist Women's Missions. She was also a member of the Sunshine Club, Penn Line Grange, Ladies Aide Society and the Lakeland Area Senior Center where she was crowned Senior Waterfowl Queen. She was very proud of her perfect voting record of over 70 years.

      She enjoyed gardening, sewing, and having company over for a meal or game of cards, and most of all, time spent with family around the campfire.

      Survivors include four children, Homer Waring and his wife, Anne, of San Antonio, Texas, Homer's former wife Lynda Schambach Waring of Dayton, Ohio, Linda Kurtz and her husband, Wayne, of Saegertown, John Waring and his wife, Sharon, of Linesville, and Sue Thompson and her husband, Bill, of Linesville; her grandchildren, Lisa Cates and her husband, Toby, Paul Kurtz and his wife, Irene, Robert Kurtz and his wife, Barbara, Ryan Waring and his wife, Heather, Matthew Waring, Meggan Bradshaw and her husband, Adam, Chelsea Donahue, Tamara Brown, Jessica Thompson, Amber Bates and her husband, Rodney, and Jaime Koontz; eight great grandchildren Tristan and Angela Cates, Isaac Kurtz, Paige, Colin, and Lauren Waring, Lilliana Bates, and True Koontz; a sister Carol Plattner of Britton, Michigan; and many nieces and nephews.

      She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Paul Waring, brother Alan Weeks, grandson in law, Nathan Koontz and great grandson, Elijah Kurtz.

      Doris loved the Lord and lived her life for Christ. When told she was ill her response was such, "I've lived my whole life to get to Heaven, don't be holding me up!"

      Calling hours will be Monday from 3 to 6 p.m. at Royal-Coleman Funeral Home, 6028 U.S. Highway 6, Linesville.

      A funeral service will follow the calling hours at 6 p.m. on Monday at the funeral home with Brenda Loucks officiating.

      Burial will be private in Linesville Cemetery.
