Doris Jean (Moore) Williams was born in Louisville, Kentucky on November 30, 1931 to the union of the late Norton C. Moore Sr. and Ethel Thomas Childs. She was a graduate of Central High School Class of 1949. After over 30 years of service, she retired from Norton Hospital.

She was a shining light in the lives of her family and friends. Her quick wit and sense of humor was matched by her warm and embracing heart.

Her strong Christian faith and love for her family were her highest priorities in life. She cherished spending time with her family, especially celebrating Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. One of her greatest joys in life were her grandchildren and she often recalled many funny and endearing stories about the time she spent with them. To her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, she was the best "Grannie - Doris Grannie - Grannie Doris".

Doris is preceded in death by her loving husband of 33 years, John W. Williams; sons, Owen "Poncho" Robinson and Eric "Petey" Robinson; daughter Carolyn Robinson; siblings Estella Mae Moore, Norton Moore Jr, Barbara Ann Moss; grandchildren Meredith Robinson Jr. and Stacey Robinson.
