Doris Herrick – loving wife, mother, teacher, and friend – joined her husband and love of her life, Ralph Herrick, to continue their eternal dance on Thursday July 6th, 2023. Doris laughed easily and often and was truly, deeply, fundamentally kind and nurturing to others.
Doris grew up in Fort Myers where she spent her days playing tennis, chess, and swimming after school. After attaining her master’s degree, she became a teacher specializing in early reading recovery. Her passion was advocating for the vulnerable and ensuring equality. Doris lit up around children, and gave them her undivided attention and encouragement.
Doris met Ralph while swimming. They quickly discovered they shared interests, religious beliefs, ethics and values, and a love of outdoor activities. Doris and Ralph enjoyed running, biking, swimming, skiing, gardening, and dancing, and supported multiple altruistic endeavors. Throughout their marriage they developed a love apparent to all that was so pure and strong it transcended this world.
Doris is preceded in death by her husband Ralph Herrick and survived by her children Dana Masters, Sheryl Frank, Scott Herrick, Marlo Herrick, and Erin Harvey, and grandchildren Adrien Herrick, Haley Dawn Masters, Miranda Harvey, and Shannon Herrick.
A service to celebrate Doris will be held July 29th at 11 a.m. at Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church, 3901 North Star Road, Richardson TX. To honor Doris, the family requests attendees wear color.
