Doris was truly one of a kind. She was always so energetic, caring and genuine. I worked at Earhart Hall for one year as a Staff Resident. Every time we would run into each other, she always took the time to talk and catch up. Even the following year I saw her and she still remembered everything. I will always remember her and see her as an example of how to treat people and life.

I wish you the best as you go through this troubling time.

As the General Manager of Earhart I had the pleasure of working with Doris on a daily basis. She was in charge of 2 central which is the main floor of the hall in and around the front desk.

She was a bright spot to my day, always greeting everyone with a friendly smile and hello. She made a point of getting to know the students, their names and often times something about them. I would hear her talking with them as she worked, asking about their day or wishing them luck on the test. The students loved her and her friendly manner. She was their mom away from home.

She was so helpful and caring in everything she did. She will be missed by all the students and staff who she worked with. Our thought and prayers are with you and your family in this time of loss.

I am deeply grieved over Doris& death. It was so unexpected. She touched so many lives at Earhart Hall, mine included.

Doris never ceased to brighten up my day. She always greeted me each morning with an enthusiastic hello. Wishing her ""good morning"" was an essential part of my day, and she made sure to seek me out so that I wouldn&t miss it. She went above and beyond every day to help the RAs with their programs, volunteering to move furniture around to our liking. She would stop whatever she was doing just to open the door for you.

My thoughts are with you now, and I send you my deepest sympathy.

To the Robertson Family,

It brought my great joy to work with Dorris for the two years that I lived in Earhart Hall. She was upbeat, happy, and always had something positive to say. Dorris made a tremendous impact on the faculty and staff that knew her as she the time to remember everyone with whom she crossed paths. Dorris was loved by everyone that had the chance to interact with her and the hallways won&t seem as bright without her around.

My condolences,

To the family of Doris Robertson-

Doris was a complete joy to see on a daily basis for the time I was an RA at Earhart Residence Hall. Her lively spirit was a delightful part of everyday that I had the pleasure of seeing her. I am amazed by the time she took to learn resident&s names who she saw on a daily basis and how much she cared for us. Doris lived life by remembering what was important to her and always placed great importance in helping students with even the smallest need.

Even though working in Earhart was a small part of her life, it made an extraordinary impression on the students there. I am blessed to have known her because I realize that every time I saw Doris, it was a gift that allowed me to share in her joy. My condolences for your family, and know that there are many people who are sharing in the joy the Doris so freely gave to us.

Yours,
Olivia Hawbaker

To Doris& Family,

I had the pleasure of working with Doris since I joined L+G in 1997 until she left the company. I remember her as a happy, full of energy co-worker always willing to help. I have lost track of her whereabouts until today when I received the sad news of her passing away. Please accept my most sincere condolences.

Marleen I am so sorry for the loss of your Mother. I only met you once a few years back when you came with Bob Berryman to my house in mulberry for a short visit. Although I never met your Mother, I have heard kind words about her from my friend Bob, and she raised a wonderful daughter. May GOD bless you, and your Family.

I work at Shreve Hall, but saw Doris when I went to Earhart to help out the account clerk there. I never saw her without a smile on her face. She was a wonderful person. She always knew your name and made it a point to say hi. I will miss her smiling face at Earhart. I am very sorry for your loss. Brenda

Doris will truly be missed not only by family but by friends as well. Doris and I were great friends through high school and unfortunetly we lost track of one another after graduation. When we did get to see each other, it was always a fun filled time if only for a short time. My thoughts and prayers are with you. God keep you in his loving arms until you meet again.

Marlene and family members,
You have my deepest sympathy at the loss of such a great woman. I know that she will be missed terribly. She was a really good person and a lot of fun to be around. I worked with her at Landis/Gyr and then at Seimens for a while and got to know her funny sense of humor. I will keep you and the rest of your family members in my prayers. God bless all of you.

To the Family of Doris Robertson,

Over the past two years, as an RA as Earhart Hall, I had the absolute pleasure of getting to know Doris. I was greatly saddened to learn of her passing. My sincere thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

Doris touched the lives of so many students throughout Earhart Hall. I truly believe that she knew more students in Earhart on a personal level than anyone else. She was friendly, easy to talk to, genuine, funny, and a hard worker. Doris was an incredible lady in so many ways and simply a joy to be around. She will be deeply missed but continue to live in the hearts of many.

With deepest sympathy,
Katie Pekkarinen

Curtis Marshall left a message on June 29, 2010:
I was a Resident Assisstant at Earhart for the last two years. Nearly everday when I passed by an area where Doris was working she talked to me. Often, I walked by her in the morning when I didn&t look awake and she would joke with me and say ""morning sunshine."" I consider her a friend. It really made my year better with her at Earhart. Not only did she talk to me she talked to and knew most of the residents in Earhart and they knew her and enjoyed her company. I am truly sorry for your loss.
