Doris Donehue Passed Away
April 03, 2019

Article by Lynette Coil

It is with a heavy heart that Doby Gray called to inform us of the passing of Doris Donehue last night, April 2, 2019 at the age of 89.  Her bronchitis turned into pneumonia and she lost the fight.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Dick, daughters, rest of the family and her friends.

Dick and Doris ran their beagles under the kennel name Riverview beagles.  Doris was always working at the beagle clubs whether she was a member or not.  She crocheted, baked pies, did dishes, just did what was ever needed whether it be in the kitchen, helping with auctions; and you didn't get away if she was selling raffle tickets.  She always helped at Coraopolis, IBF, National and every club they attended.  Dick and Doris were members of Buckeye and Willow Brook and Briar Patch when it was active.

Doris was not only a mother to her daughters, but many that crossed her path and there was no truer devoted friend than Doris.  We thank you for your dedication, support, guidance and all you gave to so many of us.  You are a true treasure that will be missed beyond measure.  Please give our love and hugs to all those that have left us, as you become another Guardian Angel.  You will forever be in our hearts and live on through the many cherished memories and stories through the years.  Rest In Peace Our Dear Friend!

DORIS ANNE DONEHUE--9/30/1929-4/2/2019    

Remember Me

Fill not your hearts with pain and sorrow,
But remember me in every tomorrow.
Remember the joy, the laughter, the smiles,
I’ve only gone to rest a little while.

Although my leaving causes pain and grief,
my going has eased my hurt,
and given me relief.

So dry your eyes and remember me,
not as I am now,
but as I used to be.
Because, I will remember you all,
and look on with a smile.
Understand in your hearts,
I’ve only gone to rest a little while.

As long as I have the love of each of you,
I can live my life in the hearts of all of you.

Doris Anne Donehue, age 89, of Tuscarawas, O., died Tuesday, April 2, 2019. She was born in Dennison, O., on September 30, 1929, to the late Donald L. and Ethel J. (Fuller) Keffer. She graduated from Tuscarawas Warwick High School in 1947. She was a member of Sharon Moravian Church. She married Richard L. Donehue who survives on July 3, 1949.

She was an Avon representative for many years. She and Dick raised and trained AKC champion field trial beagles. Some of her happiest times were spent attending the competitions and socializing with fellow beaglers. Doris also took delight in baking homemade pies for family gatherings or just to give away. She could figure out the most complex crochet pattern. In addition, she was an avid bowler. Whenever she could, she was on the go.

Above all, she loved her family. Besides her husband, she is survived by two daughters, Pat Cox of Fresno, O., and Kate Capozella, of Bradenton, FL, four grandchildren Douglas (Amiee) Cox of Brewster, Audrey (Jason) Freeman of Bradenton, Cydney (Andrew) Burkhart of Strasburg, and Kerry Capozella of Belleville, O. and eleven great-grandchildren Sam, Max, Ajay, Abby, Ella, Andrew, Lillie, Korbin, Addy, Kassius, and Jayden.

She was preceded in death by a sister and brother-in-law Martha and Eugene Civiello, three brothers Terry, Ben, and Don Keffer, and a son-in-law Clifton Cox.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, April 13, 2019, at 2 p.m., at the Uhrich-Hostettler English Funeral Home, Inc. at Uhrichsville, with the Rev. Dan Eggan officiating. Friends may call one hour prior to the services from 1 to 2 p.m.

The family suggests that instead of flowers donations can be sent to Sharon Moravian Church, 4776 Moravian Church Road SE, New Philadelphia, O., 44663.

As a registered tissue donor, Doris has given the gift of healing.
