Doris A. Groves, 92, of Bruceton Mills, peacefully moved into her new home in heaven on June 9, 2022.
She was born in Beech Run on April 21, 1930 to the late Ralph and Mary Graham.
Grandma Doris, as her family affectionately calls her, loved Jesus and was a member of the Little Sandy Church of the Nazarene. She enjoyed embroidering, quilting and baking her delicious gingerbread cookies from her grandmother’s recipe. This recipe continues. She has had various jobs over the years but loved being with her family, especially her grandchildren.
Doris devoted herself to her children and to her spouses: Lois Martin and Gerald of Valley Point, Linda Mayfield and Gary of Cuzzart, and Lyle Groves and Janet of Bruceton Mills; and grandchildren: Ty Martin and wife Amy, Jeremy Martin and wife Heather, Chad Martin and wife Michelle, Mindy Mayfield, Christina Pounds and husband George, Stephanie Groves and fiance Steven Blosser, Steven Groves and wife Brooke, and Buddy Groves and wife Tara.
One of her greatest joys in recent years has been the addition of several great-grandchildren: Zack Martin, Katie Martin and fiancé Austin Miller, Gage and Ragan Martin, Mason and Brianna Martin, Lainy Pounds, Brody Blosser, Blakelyn, PJ and Sage Groves and Walker Groves. She had one great-great grandson, Nash Miller, who blessed her with five generations.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her 66-year-old husband, Gene Groves; son of Larry Grove; granddaughter Stephanie Groves; two brothers, John and Loye Graham; and Sister Aleda Rush.
