Deceased Name: DORIS MARION THOMAS
Doris Marion Thomas, a lifelong resident of the Portland area, died of cancer Sunday in the Milwaukie home of her son. A private memorial gathering will be held. Mrs. Thomas was 72.
She was born Sept. 1, 1919. Her maiden name was Fortune. She married Bob Thomas on June 9, 1940, in Portland. Mrs. Thomas was a homemaker.
Survivors besides her husband include her son, Chuck of Milwaukie; daughter, Linda Hansen of Portland; and three grandchildren.
Disposition was by cremation.
The family suggests remembrances be contributions to the Good Samaritan Hospital & Medical Center hospice program or the Oregon Division of the American Cancer Society.
Any further assistance would be wonderful but I am getting more excited about getting closer to cousins
