Aneita E. Doering

July 16, 1939 ‒ October 24, 2018

Mount Vernon, Ohio

Aneita E. Doering, 79, of Mount Vernon was called to her heavenly home on Wednesday, October 24, 2018. She was born July 16, 1939 in Germantown, PA to the late Harold and Marion (Allen) Kurtz.

Aneita attended the Seventh-day Adventist Church and was the church secretary for the former Seventh-day Adventist City Church in Mount Vernon for many years.  She enjoyed the simple things in life, going for walks in the woods, photographing clouds, the changing seasons and a good cup of Mocha!  Aneita had a great fondness for her Philadelphia Eagles and the Ohio State Buckeyes!  She will be remembered as someone who was always willing to help those in need.  Aneita’s greatest passion in life was spending time with her grandsons and great grandson.

Aneita is survived by her children, Elizabeth Keen of Mount Vernon and Dave Doering of Howard; grandsons, Zachariah and Alexander of Mount Vernon; and her great grandson, Payton.

In addition to her parents, Aneita was preceded in death by her husband, Robert Doering; sisters, Muriel Kurtz, Dorothy Kurtz, Ruth Kurtz and Marilyn Hyson; and three infant brothers.

The family will receive friends from 4 p.m. until a time of sharing at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, October 31, 2018 at the Dowds-Snyder Funeral Home, 201 Newark Rd., Mount Vernon with Marcellus de Oliveira, Pastor for the Marion Seventh-day Adventist District presiding.

  • Beth, Dave, Alex, Zack, Payten, family and friends,

    Please know, that Aneita’s memories will live on, in each of us, until God brings us together again. Quiet at times, until you got Aneita to open up, sharing a cup of mocho, and talking about her family. She was loved, and will be missed by all. Let us continue to remember her, as she would want us too, dwelling in the house of the Lord at our local Seventh Day Adventist church congregations. Remembering the fun we had at Olive Garden, when Frank sang, what a blushing site for poor Aneita. Let God continue to unite each of us someday, as we work on preparing ourselves, to meet Aneita again in that great somewhere called Heaven. God Bless each of her family in this sad, but soon to be joyous resurrection. Rest in Peace, my dear church sister and friend, until we meet again!

    Love, James, Karen, Emily (Tori), Jamie, Eric, & Kristen

  • Dearest Beth and family,

    I am saddened to hear of Aneida’s passing- for you especially! Oh, how our mothers love us!!!

    She was such a helpful friend in the past. Many summers she assisted in the children’s programming at Ohio camp meeting, especially helping in the nursery. I could always count on her faithful support. She was always on time and very efficient and kind with the children.

    In what is like moments, she will see Jesus and ascend thru the sky to meet Jesus!!!! Can’t be sad for her! Dry your tears and give a shout for joy!!!!! I know that is easier said than done, but what a glorious reality there is for those who believe!!!!

    Miss you, friend!! 🙏🙏🙏
