She was married in August of 1956 to James Eugene Runyans, and they had a son, James Eugene Runyans Jr.
She loved her friends, family and her church family from Christian Life Center here in Charlotte, and will be sorely missed by everyone. She and her friend of 37 years, Lindsay Brown, raised orphaned cats and dogs for 30+ years in their kennel, designed by Doris and built in the 1980s to house the animals.
She is survived by her son James E. Runyans, Jr. and his family, and many cousins on both her mother’s and father’s sides.
Graveside services will be held at 11:00 a.m. Friday, April 16, at Sharon Memorial Park, with Pastor Mark Matthews officiating. Visitation will be from 6:00 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, April 15, at Hankins & Whittington Funeral Service, 1111 East Blvd.
