Here is a message from Doris' daughter, Jennifer: 

My mom, Doris Virginia Schick, passed away peacefully this morning between 4:30am and 530am mst. Mom was one of those pure souls put on this earth. I feel so blessed to not only have known her, but that I was lucky enough to have her as my mother. She was artist, adventurer and caregiver with a wonderful sense of humor and perspective on life. She loved me unconditionally. Her smile was like no other and even when she couldn’t talk these last few years due to her worsening dementia, she always knew us, embraced us and connected with everyone around her with her lovely spirit. She fought tirelessly to connect with everyone until the very end. I will love you forever momma. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

She was a very special person who will be sorely missed by all who loved her.

    She was a highly skilled lacemaker who generously shared both her knowledge and her warmth. I always enjoyed her presence. She will indeed be missed.

    I always liked Doris. She was often the nominating committee for NELG, often by herself. Despite her petite stature, I knew there was a really big person inside who could really twist elbows. When I became the nominating committee for a while, I called her for advice since she had been so successful. I realized that the big strength she had was persistence. When she moved out of the area, I missed her. My greatest condolences to her family since I don't think anyone who knew her could not miss her.
