Doris was preceded in death by her parents; five children, William Christopher Cullers, Richard Eugene Cullers, William Edward Cullers, Rhonda Bernice Cullers, and Randall Bruce Cullers, and two brothers, Wayne Spray and one in infancy.

Doris was raised in Bible Grove, Missouri where she attended grade school. She later graduated from Downing High School with the Class of 1963. After graduating, Doris worked in nursing at Grim Smith Hospital in Kirksville. Doris loved working until her health failed and no longer could. She and William were foster parents for many years and after retiring Doris took care of her son, Brian and her grand babies.

Doris enjoyed gardening, sewing, making blankets, karaoke and watching her grandchildren. She loved racing in her red Firebird after work, watching one of her favorite shows (Dr. Pol), loved her bearded dragon Buddy, taking care of her fish, enjoying her pet chinchillas, and playing with her grandchildren.

Over the last two years, Doris experienced failing health and fought a long hard fight with her illness. She will be remembered for being very compassionate, for having a heart of gold, and for being strong willed.

Doris had a passion for Jesus Christ and was a member of the Queen City Baptist Church.
