MONTPELIER - Doris Lillian Mitchell, 70, passed away Monday, February 23, 2004, due to
complications from extended illness and surgery. She was born in Montpelier, Idaho, on
April 27, 1933, to Chauncey Leon Dorney and Mary Elizabeth Skinner. Doris was raised in
Dingle, Idaho, and lived in the Bear Lake Valley throughout her life.
She cherished the gospel and was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-day Saints. One of her most recent callings was that of Relief Society president of
the Montpelier Fifth Ward, where she loved and enjoyed being able to serve others.
Doris was a natural and genuine friend to all, and was known for her kindness, acceptance
and giving of those she met. She longed for being in the mountains, traveling with her
family, working in her yard, being with her children and finding treasures at yard sales.
She is survived by her husband, Frank Mitchell, and son, Spencer Hart, both of Montpelier,
Idaho; two daughters, Kris Hart of Logan, Utah, Paulette Carlson of Green River, Wyo.; a
son, Nils Hart, of Layton, Utah; and six grandchildren.
We love you and will miss you until we meet again!
