Doris King

Doris J. King, 72, passed away on Tuesday, October 27, 2015.

Doris moved to Tampa ten years ago from Middletown. When in Middletown, she was employed as a bookkeeper with Brenner’s Automotive Parts for many years. 

 Doris was preceded in death by her father Clarence Dupes.

 She is survived by her mother, Betty Baumbach; daughters, Shari Nigro (Keith), and Rae Lenker (Michael); grandchildren, Justin Lenker, Darby Nigro, and Austin (A.J. ) Nigro; sister, Barbara Arnold (Edward); and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

 Most important in life to Doris was her family. Then 15 years ago, she started researching the family tree and genealogy, which she enjoyed immensely. Doris was also very artistic and innovative in making and selling homemade candy, which helped pay for her daughter’s college textbooks. Her family and other neighborhood children were spoiled with homemade caramel, peanut butter cups and other delicious sweets.  

 A Memorial Service to celebrate Doris’ life was held in Tampa, Fla.
