  • Geane and Becky I am so sorry for your loss. Your grandmother was an awesome lady. She always treated me good as we were growing up. I will never forget sitting at the family home and she would always come in the door so happy and cheerful. I will never forget the comment she made on one of my key chains at Geane’s house. We all laughed so hard that day. I really cared for her although I hadn’t seen here in years I never forgot her. I will not be able to attend the service because I won’t have my car but please know I’m with you in spirit. Geane I love you as if you were my sister and wish I could be there with you. Agian I’m sorry for your loss.

  • Geane, So sorry to hear about Granny’s passing. She was such a super lady. She will be missed by many. Thoughts and Prayers out to all of you.

  • Geane & Becky, Its with a heavy heart that I mourn Granny`s passing. She was like a grandmother to us when we were growing up and even afterwards. There are so many good memories, I cant just pick 1 of being her neighbor/adopted grandkid. Been a good bit since we last visited her, and for that I regret. I bet she is now playing Euchre in heaven with your parents and my dad. Man the times they all played cards, while we ran around East Park, now that a blast from the past! RIP Granny, Until meet again!!!

  • I’m so very sorry for the family’s loss. Doris was a wonderful lady, so glad i got to know her. She told me stories everyday. She talked about her family all the time. I enjoyed the time i spent with her. I will miss her.

  • I was partners with Doris many times at euchre. She knew the game and played it well. Always captivating us with her stories from her lifetime of memory’s, she was fun, sassy, sofisticated, beautiful inside and out. I’m happy to say, I called her friend. R.IP.

  • As I sit here thinking about Granny and all the wonderful memories that were made during the time that we were blessed with her, I smile, I cry, I giggle and then I cry a little more. Having her as a part of my life… growing up across the street from her was more than a blessing. She was part of our daily lives… a part of our world that I wouldn’t trade for anything. I know it has been far too long since I had been back to visit and with that I have a lot of sadness… but to know that she is now in a place without suffering… I am sure, with a smile on her face knowing that we are all remembering how she touched each and every one of our hearts. How she helped mold us Ransom children into the people that we have grown into. To us she was and will always be ‘Granny’… a Grandmother… a friend… FAMILY!!! R.I.P. Granny… Please give my Dad a nice tight hug for me.

  • Geane: My sister was your namesake. She was very close to your mother. My mother was also close to Doris. My sister, Geane, passed away in February of this year. She always spoke of you being her namesake. This is a vary difficult time for all of us. Feel free to e-mail me if you want.

    Sincerely yours. ( Jon Barkhurst)
