Obituary for Doris Manders

Doris C. Manders, 87, De Pere, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Thursday, May 10th, 2018. She was born on May 30th, 1930 to the late Joseph and Pearl Linsmier, and she graduated from East De Pere High School. After graduation, Doris worked in the office at Murphy Insurance for 6 years. On February 13th, 1954, she married James Manders and worked as a bookkeeper for the family business, Manders Plumbing. The most important thing to Doris was spending time with her family and friends. She enjoyed everything from family time at the cottage, vacationing in Florida, downhill skiing, and attending her children’s & grandchildren’s events.

For 25 years, she volunteered her time delivering Mobile Meals with her special friend, Joyce Collette.

She is also survived by her 15 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. She leaves behind a sister, Rita Van Laanen, as well as sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law Mary (Don) Schleis, Kaye (Larry) Van Alstine, Jeanne (Tom) Chopin, Jodi (Gene) Gibbons, and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her siblings Norbert (Lola) Linsmier, Harold (Geneva) Linsmier and Helen (Joseph) Lenss.
