Doris Mae Smith, nee Borger, 86, of Freeburg, IL, born May 7, 1928, in Freeburg, IL, died Thursday, April 16, 2015 at Freeburg Care Center, in Freeburg, IL.

Mrs. Smith was a member of the American Legion Auxiliary and also Grace Doctrine Church in St. Charles, MO.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Lavern E. “Snuffy” Smith, whom she married on October 6, 1951, and who died on July 30, 2013; her parents, Clem and Marguerite Borger, nee Brueggemann; and three brothers, Robert and Donald Borger, and Richard, in infancy.

Surviving are her two sons, Timothy E. (Melinda) Smith of Columbia, IL,
and David K. Smith of Freeburg, IL.

Because Doris believed that Christ died on the Cross for her sins,
the family rejoices in knowing that she is in Heaven and face-to-face with the Lord.
“For God loved the world so much that He gave His uniquely born son,
so that anyone who believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life.”
John 3:16

Condolences Left For Doris Smith

David, Tim & Melinda,

Please accept our deepest sympathy in the loss of Doris. We all believe she is in a better place, reunited with Snuffy in all the splendor of Heaven and in the presence of our Lord.

Doris use to always save her cookies deemed to brown around the edges for me. I loved her chocolate chip cookies with hickory nuts that Snuffy got from the river bottom. If she didn’t have any suitable “mistakes” she would “burn some for Mike”.

Doris made the world a better place and now she can do the same in Heaven.

God bless and keep you all.

Mike & Erin
