Doris Rose Russo, beloved wife, mother, and grandmother, passed away peacefully on July 4, 2024, at the age of 78. Born on November 24, 1945, in Portland, Oregon, Doris spent her younger years living in between Alaska and Portland, Oregon. Doris' life was a testament to her unwavering commitment to her friends and family. She was an incredible mother, always offering an abundance of love and support to her own children as well as others. Doris found immense joy in traveling, spending time with her family and had a special love for her grandchildren. She was an avid quilter and found great pleasure in creating beautiful quilts for her loved ones. Doris was also known for her warm hospitality, always welcoming friends and family into her home with open arms. Additionally, she was a proud breast cancer survivor of 30 years demonstrating her incredible strength and resilience. 

We will always remember Doris as a beacon of kindness, compassion, and generosity. Her infectious smile and laughter brightened the lives of everyone around her. Doris' legacy of love and her unshakeable spirit will continue to inspire us.
