Doris was born on June 19, 1930 to Archie Douglas and Katherine Reed Roberts in Minden, Louisiana and passed away on Friday, February 3, 2023 in Springdale, Arkansas.

Her favorite things to do in life were read, sing and travel. Her favorite scripture is Isaiah 41:10 and her favorite song is “I Bowed on My Knees and Cried Holy.” She was a nurse all of her working years and retired from Willis-Knighton Health System in 1993 where she was an operating room supervisor.

Doris is preceded in death by her parents, her best friend and husband, Ramon L. Simmons and her only daughter, Katherine Hope Simmons. Left to cherish her memory are her two sons, M. Douglas Simmons (Susan) and Charles R. Simmons (Lydia); grandchildren, Cory Simmons (Kelly), Amanda S. Hice (Damon), Jennifer S. Cory (Michael), Philip Simmons (Carolina), Lauren S. Ford (Joey), Dr. Leigh-Ann S. Washer (Chris), Christopher McKaskle (Victoria), Mark Allen (Tiffany); and 19 great-grandchildren, Garrett, Taylor, Jackson, Hayden, B.J., Theo, Ravi, Hugo, Beckett, Britton, Madeleine, Clara, Hayes, Benjamin, Ariah, Katherine, Garrett, Devin and Kayden. She is also survived by her only brother, Charles Douglas Roberts (Jan), and two nephews, Scott Roberts (Teresa) and John Roberts (Mary) and many great-nephews and nieces, all of whom she loved very much!
