Doris Lorentzen, age 95, went home to Heaven on June 30, 2019.
Doris was born on Feb. 17, 1924, in Devils Lake, N.D. She grew up in Minot, N.D., where she graduated from high school. She attended the University of North Dakota where she was a member of Kappa Alpha Theta sorority.
Upon graduation, she married her college sweetheart, Clifford Lorentzen on Aug. 25, 1946. They settled in Ardmore where Cliff established his medical practice and they raised their three children. They were actively involved in the First Baptist Church.
Since 2002, Doris made her home in Waco, Texas, near family. She was actively involved in the First Baptist Church of Woodway. Her greatest fulfillment came from her relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. Her greatest joy came from family, friends and cherished memories of travel with Cliff.
