Doris L. Dishion
Dishion, Doris L., 93, of Louisville was born on November 20, 1922 in Louisville to the late Verley Lee and Edessa White Watkins and passed from this life on Thursday October 13, 2016. Doris was a member of the Shively Baptist Church, South Central LIFT and the Louisville Girls Alumni Association. Doris first saw Russell at age 12, and immediately wrote his name across the chalkboard. They were married in 1945, and adored each other for 63 years until his death in 2008. She was also preceded in death by a daughter, Susan Braden. Left to cherish her memory is her daughter, Janet Dishion. Doris was a longtime member of Shively Baptist Church, where she was active in her Sunday School class, sang in the choir, and visited members no longer able to attend. A self-taught pianist, she could play anything but loved hymns the most, and was a fantastic seamstress. She moved to Wesley Manor ALC in 2014, where she entertained many with her sense of humor. She especially loved Clarissa, Terry, and Suzy, and looked forward to the weekends with Janet, going shopping, out to eat, and visiting her grand dog Maggie. We miss you! She is also survived by a grandson and two great grandchildren. A service to celebrate Doris' life will be held at 10 am Monday in the Southern Chapel of Arch L. Heady & Son, 3601 Taylor Blvd. with burial to follow in Cave Hill Cemetery. Visitation will be from 2-6 pm on Sunday.
