Doris E. Kirkpatrick

Doris was born in Canton, Illinois to Mildred Tasker and Wiley Beadles. She lived in Lewiston, Illinois until October 1944 when the family moved to Richland, WA, where she graduated from Columbia High School in 1947 as a member of their ladies basketball and softball team. Doris was a woman of many trades; a bank teller, computer science clerk, insurance assistant and a realtor. She loved playing games with an expertise in cards. Her many friends made up her bridge and pinochle clubs. Her other great talents included her cooking, gardening, home making and entertaining her ever expanding boisterous family. She and Joe loved traveling and went everywhere they desired together, in particular Mazatlan, Mexico. She is survived by her adoring husband Joe Kirkpatrick, sister Erma Patterson – Vancouver, WA, three children; Ronna Cowell- Kennewick, WA, Ken Cowell – Maple Valley, WA and Wendy Burman-Diablo, CA, step son Ron Kirkpatrick-Richland, WA, step dtr. Vicki Locati-Pasco, WA, 12 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren. She will surely be missed, but she left everyone she met many lasting memories of her. In memory of her please choose a foundation of your choice for donation. The American Cancer Society would be an appreciative choice.

Graveside services will be held at Sunset Gardens in Richland on Friday, September 6, 2013 at 11:00 a.m.
