Doris Ileene Allen Baldwin

Doris Ileene Allen Baldwin peacefully passed away after a short illness, on April 25th, 2007. Her children were at her side. Doris was born to Edgar and Charlotte Allen on September 20, 1926 in Medford, Ore.; they preceded her in death. She moved to Crescent City, Calif. as an infant and returned to the Rogue Valley in 1975. At that time she attended the Oregon College of Business. Doris graduated with a business degree, taught at the business school and completed her career at the age of 72 as the office manager and bookkeeper for Pappy's Pizza.

Doris took great pride in raising her six children, encouraging them to be compassionate, open minded and independent. She met her many challenges in life with grace and with a love of life. One of her mottos was "to thine own self be true" and she was. Two weeks before she died her son-in-law, Del, took her for her last Harley ride. Reading, gardening, music and spending time with her family and friends were her passions in life.

Doris is survived by her only brother, Robert Allen of Crescent City, Calif. and his wife, Elaine; her six children, Wenda Sondergard Guffey of Colo., Karen Mezzetta of Medford, Ore., Peggy & Delbert Nickols of Medford, Ore., Lisa Phelps of Nolanville, Tex., Ron Blacketer & Deirdre of Limerick, Ireland, and Perri & Ron of Joseph Canby, Ore.; her grandchildren, Trina, Heather, Trisha, Carri, Giuseppe, Alexandrea, Cutter, Isabella, Natasha, Guthrie, Calder; her great grandchildren, Craig, Benjamin, Sherman, Colten, Donovyn, Oscar and a fifth one due in November.

In lieu of flowers, the family would like donations made to Access, Inc. 3630 Aviation Way Medford Or. 97504, 779-6691

Memorial services will be held at 2:00 pm, on Sunday, April 29, 2007 @ Idle Wheels, Club House, Medford, OR.
