I first met Doxie at the Hallmark Store in the 80's. Doxie was a friend to all who knew her. She always had a positive outlook even during trying times. There was no one like Doxie. She was a unique person and will be missed by many.
Rest in Peace, friend.

I first met Doxie 30 years ago when we were both waitressing at Hotel Conneaut. Very " classy"and elegant lady who adored and spoke highly of her sons. Regret having lost touch with her over time, but did think of her often. Prayers to her family
